2019 Special Olympics Festival - June 25, 20189

Through the generosity of the business community, the Festival has become our premier fundraising event where Island business people gather to support Special Olympics PEI. We rely on these funds to offer over 89 annual programs year round to over 350 Special Olympics athletes in Prince Edward Island.


Enriching Lives Gala

The Enriching Lives Gala, taking place on Tuesday, June 25th, 2019, is the largest annual fundraiser for Special Olympics PEI. Funds raised support over 350 athletes with an intellectual disability across Prince Edward Island. This very special evening consists of a Gala Dinner as well as a Live and a Silent Auction at the Delta Prince Edward by Marriott Hotel.

Please visit our Enriching Lives Gala page to learn more about our Gala Dinner & Auction.



Enriching Lives Gala - Auction

The Enriching Lives Gala includes both a Silent & Live Auction. These auctions are essential to the success of the event, accounting for over 35% of the total amount raised. Throughout the evening over 550 supporters, including our celebrity guests, will have the change to bid on an exciting lineup of donated auction items. 

Once again in 2019 we will be hosting our Enriching Lives Auction online, beginning two weeks before the Gala on our Enriching Lives Auction website and we suggest you browse the items and register prior to the event.
