UPCOMING: March 9th 2019
Janus is truly in bloom this year! We are all feeling spring fever with excitement for this year’s Gala. Guests will be treated to a ‘spot on’ three course meal. We’ll don our finest fascinators and top hats while we bid on prizes in Calgary’s largest silent auction! As always, our balloon pop, raffles and heads and tails games promise to be ‘jolly good fun’. We are proud to support Calgary’s most dedicated parent volunteers and educational innovators as we approach this fundraiser.

Students, families, staff, and Vida Events all agree: there’s no place like Janus! Over 400 guests put on their ruby slippers and joined us at the Janus Academy Annual Spring Gala. This stylish, entertaining evening celebrated Janus students, and encouraged community support through a silent auction, balloon pop, and so much more.
Funds raised through this event support the academic success and lifelong community integration of students with autism. Watching the Janus Academy Student Choir conduct a live performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow left no doubt of the positive impact this magical evening can have.
Vida Events wishes a heartfelt congratulations to the amazing students, gala committee, and parent volunteers on this successful journey to Oz!

We were so honoured to work with the most dedicated parent volunteers and educational innovators in Calgary! Dauntless in the face of Autism’s diverse challenges they approach fundraising with persistence, positivity and a sense of humour. Empowering students to thrive is one of the best ways to fulfill our mission to be a catalyst for change. 2017 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Janus Academy's Spring Gala. It was a night of magic, fun and robust community support.
