Vancouver is in the midst of the glamorous gala season, and the hottest ticket so far has been for REVEAL -the Greatest Show on Earth. Presented by BMO Bank of Montreal and co-chaired by Clara Aquilini and Jill Killeen, the 4th REVEAL Gala raised an astonishing $1,0222,000 for Canucks Autism Network.

With a ‘Big Top’ theme, Grammy-winning NYC chanteuse and provocateur, Rizo, commanded centre ring as Reveal’s Ringmaster and dazzled the 500+ guests with a comedic performance complete with three show-stopping musical numbers.

Vancouver’s own Underground Circus presented an awe-inspiring spectacle made up of contortionists, aerial acts, contact jugglers, and stilt marionettes. Canucks Autism Network music students left a lasting imprint on the hearts of attendees with their touching rendition of This is Me from The Greatest Showman.

The star of The Good Doctor, Freddie Highmore, was among VIPs, alongside Paolo and Clara Aquilini, the founders of the Canucks Autism Network, Showcase Piano’s Manuel Bernaschek, Patrizia and Sean Mitchell, Jill and Mike Killeen and Vancouver Canucks legends, Kirk McLean, Cliff Ronning, Jyrki Lumme, and Dave Babych.

Carnival games, DJ beats, dancing, mini doughnuts and candy floss kept guests partying under the big top long after the curtains closed.
