Are you a fan of Canadian literature? We are, and are big supporters of the literacy community!
Organized as a house party by a group of friends in 2002 to celebrate the swanky Scotiabank Giller Prize Gala, the Scotiabank Giller Light Bash has grown into a full-scale event with over 1,200 people celebrating Canadian literature and supporting literacy from coast-to-coast.
Guests watch the live broadcast of the Gala on the big screen, socialize with fellow guests, vote on the book they believe will take home the coveted Scotiabank Giller Prize and drink special “Doris-tinis” in honour of Doris Giller, the prize’s namesake.
To help support such an amazing cause, our Toronto, Vancouver, and Regina stores are providing their city’s bash with a #RandomActsOfPizza to fuel the guests as one of the Culinary sponsors of the event!
Since its inaugural year, the Scotiabank Giller Light Bash has raised over $600,000 for Frontier College, Canada’s original literacy organization. The funds collected go towards training volunteers to effectively deliver vital literacy and learning support to children, youth, and adults across Canada.
