The 27th Ernestine Affair



Supported by dozens of volunteers, the Ernestine Affair is an opportunity to unite as a community, recognize all that we have accomplished, and celebrate the strength and courage of the women and children who have come to Ernestine’s to break the cycle of violence and abuse.

After a two-year COVID-19 hiatus, Ernestine’s is excited to once again welcome our wonderful friends and supporters at our annual fundraising gala.
Join us at the 27th Ernestine Affair on April 27th, 2022, at the spectacular Arcadian Court!
We are thrilled to have the extraordinarily talented Angie Seth and Brent Bambury host our 27th Ernestine Affair! You can learn more about our fantastic hosts here.


How To Get Involved:

Each year, Ernestine’s must fundraise over $500,000 and each year, the shelter and its supporters come together to raise much-needed funds. The Ernestine Affair is an event that represents 25% of the shelter’s fundraising revenue. Since 2008, the gala has raised over $1.4 million, and at our last event – the 25th Ernestine Affair in 2019 – we raised over $210,000!

Most of Ernestine’s clients arrive at the shelter with minimal clothing or supplies and stay with us from six months to one year.
Sponsorship of the Ernestine Affair is an extraordinary opportunity for our community partners to make a meaningful impact on the lives of the women and their children, especially at a time when shelter requests from women have increased by 400% due to the pandemic. Join us in our efforts and support us in our abilities to offer crucial and immediate assistance and provide our clients with all the necessities that our clients need during their stay at the shelter.

Examples of the supplies & support we provide include:

  • A Welcome Package with new bedding, toiletries, towels, seasonal clothing, and shoes
  • A “New Start” Kit with household and kitchen supplies, small appliances, and other items needed to set up a home
  • Medical and prescription expenses that aren’t covered by OHIP
  • 24-hour access to crisis counselling support
  • Support in dealing with medical, legal, immigration, and housing issues


We would like to thank all those who donated funds and auction items at the 26th Ernestine Affair, as well as those who donated their tickets, table, and sponsorship purchases despite the event cancellation. We are extremely grateful for this show of support and generosity!
