On October 16, 2019 a very special dinner will be served to 100 individuals trying to escape poverty and homelessness in their lives.

Taking place at the Wesley Day Centre, the Wesley Gala Dinner is an opportunity to turn the tables, so to speak. At our gala, local entrepreneurs, celebrities, business people and politicians serve the meal to some of Hamilton’s most marginalized and vulnerable citizens. In many cases, these people are living on the street, battling illness and addiction or facing serious challenges in life.

None of this is possible without the amazing team of partners, sponsors, volunteers and staff that collaborate to make the Wesley Gala happen. If you’d like to get involved as a sponsor or volunteer, please contact Andrea Buttars at or by phone at 905-528-5629 x 248.

Last year, local celebrity chef Jonny Blonde worked with the team at Wesley to design and execute an incredible menu.

The Wesley Gala relies on the generosity of sponsors and donors. Each year, businesses, restaurants and employee groups sponsor the Wesley Gala and assist with serving the meal.
