Thank You!

 Thank you for joining us under the stars last night at the 2024 Moonlight Gala! Thanks to you it was an outstanding evening in support of Canadian art and would not be possible without the significant contributions of our sponsors, donors and in-kind partners. This vital support helps the McMichael produce award-winning exhibitions and publications, deliver impactful educational programs, and maintain the beautiful grounds and trails we all love. Save the date for May 31, 2025!
