2022 Night to Nurture promises “Something Completely Different”

Annual gala raises money in support of breakfast programs and Kids Help Phone
The Grocery Foundation's 2022 Night to Nurture Gala hybrid event will take place on Jan. 29.

The Grocery Foundation has “Something Completely Different” lined up for its 2022 Night to Nurture Gala on Jan. 29.

The foundation is planning an “entertainment spectacle“ that includes, for the first time, magic, in addition to comedy and musical acts featuring top Canadian talent such as illusionist Darcy Oake, comedian Gerry Dee, and musicians Tim Hicks, Alan Doyle, Fefe Dobson, Tyler Shaw and Alan Frew.

Also, for the first time, organizers are serving up three ways to view the show in 2022. Attendees can watch the show virtually from home (as they did last year); there is also the option to host a virtual table and watch the show with a group; and there will be two live VIP viewing parties (of about 400 to 500 people) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre with satellite viewing parties also being held in Vancouver and Atlantic Canada.

Comedian Gerry Dee is among the top Canadian talent set to perform.

The Night to Nurture Gala, which has been taking place for more than 40 years, raises crucial dollars to help fund breakfast programs in Canadian schools and supports the work of Kids Help Phone.

“The pandemic has obviously been hard on everybody, but it’s been particularly hard on Canadian children and youth in terms of food insecurity and mental health issues. So there’s an increased need for the type of work that the Gala is supporting,” says Shaun McKenna, executive director of The Grocery Foundation.

“Night to Nurture is going to be very different,” he adds. “But what’s not different is that we haven’t changed our resolve to help Canadian children in their time of need.”
