Tanya Curtis, also known as T, joined the Crystal Gala Foundation during it’s second year. T had a strong bond with the original ladies of the foundation and for the past 16 years they have become her mentors. She is extremely dedicated to her work and volunteers with the Crystal Gala and many other organizations to give back to the community she loves.

T plays a key integral role as a committee member, bringing great wisdom from her business and adds invaluable feedback on the direction and execution of the gala. She has previously been a chair on the committee and is always looked to as a leader.

One of her favourite gala moments was assisting the dancers on stage with Dr. Stangelove. We love you for always bring the fun to the party T. xoxo

Please welcome one of our newest members, Julie Charles. Although Julie is new to the gala committee she has been part of the gala family for a long time as her mother in law, Gerri Charles, is one of the founding members.

"My mother in law is a huge part of the Crystal Gala and has inspired me to give back to the community in some way. I want to help make a positive impact on our community as well as to be a strong leader and inspiration for my daughter. I get so emotionally charged thinking about this foundation. “

Julie’s favourite gala moment was prohibition. She didn’t attend the gala but she gave birth to her daughter the night before. She said she’d never forget poor Gerri pacing and putting a little added chaos into the final gala preparation.

Julie will be taking on the silent auction portion of the Crystal Gala and we can’t wait to have her as part of our team.

One of the gala girls that has one of the biggest hearts and biggest smiles is Jessica Germaine (we finally got a pic). While living in the UK, Jess came across the Crystal Gala Foundation and decided she wanted to be part of something like this when she moved back to Abbotsford in 2007.
“I loved the fact that 100% of the proceeds stay in the community. Many people don’t realize that even the committee members are volunteers and have to purchase their own tickets. Being a gala girl doesn’t come with any perks - it’s all about the cause. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Every gala has had a special place in Jess’s heart from her being pregnant for two galas, to having a gala land on her Oma's birthday (she passed away from breast cancer). She loved this year’s London Calling theme as it reminded her of her UK home.
Jess has made all of the gala girls into a family, not only for herself, but for her three girls. It truly takes a village to make a difference and that includes not only the girls on the committee but the community that supports the cause.
