Ernestine Affair


Join us on April 12, 2017 for an awards dinner and auction benefiting Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter. Every year Ernestine’s marks the arrival of spring with a special evening dedicated to women and children fleeing violence - The Ernestine Affair! For over 22 years, new friends and old have come together every April in celebration and support.

April 12, 2017 will mark the 23rd annual Ernestine Affair. The event has grown from a lively but modest badminton tournament to an event attended by over 500 guests and supported by dozens of volunteers.

We are excited to announce that Fiona Reid will host this year’s Ernestine Affair at the Carlu! Fiona is one of Canada’s best known stage actors. She has been involved with a wealth of widely known projects. To learn more about Fiona, visit our event page on Facebook to read her biography.

If you purchase your tickets before March 1st you will be entred into a draw for the Carole King production of BEAUTIFUL (2 tickets approx value $350).

We are once again thrilled to present the Ernestine Affair at the Carlu.
