DUE TO THE ONGOING FIRES, the gala is postponed for now.

Hockey NWT's 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at the Explorer Hotel. The event is sure to be tons of fun and will feature a fantastic buffet dinner, live and silent auctions, fun games, music and a hot stove with celebrity guests.
