The Red Violin 2018 will bring together 250 parents, community members, donors, and music lovers for a celebration of community arts. Guests will enjoy snack and beverage, and explore the silent auction in support of Sistema Toronto. We will build on the success of the 2017 event and raise at least $14,000 - enough for four students to attend Sistema Toronto for one year. Tickets will be on sale soon! 

Sponsor The Red Violin 2018

As a sponsor of the Red Violin Gala, you will be part of the movement that is giving 250 at-risk kids access to free social and music education. By creating opportunities for young people in vulnerable neighbourhoods, you will show your company's commitment to building strong communities and also receive exclusive branding opportunities and visibility at the event.

To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please review the 2018 Sponsorship Package.

Donate to the Silent Auction

The Red Violin 2017 was able to reach its fundraising goals thanks in large part to the Silent Auction. We are currently looking for donations for the 2018 Red Violin silent auction! Tickets to museums/events/attractions, gift certificates to local restaurants or shoppes, services, gift baskets and packages all make excellent silent auction items. To contribute a gift-in-kind, please get in touch!
