Y.E. 2023 YEAR-END GALA
After successfully holding Youth Elite Year-End Gala in the past six years, in November 17, 2023, Y.E sincerely invites local young elites to gather together to celebrate the growth of the past year.
This year's theme is "Casino Royale"
Stepping into the seventh year of Y.E., we hope to continue celebrating achievements of Vancouver's finest young entrepreneurs and startups, and provide a platform to gather and connect. Y.E. is committed to be the forefront to recognize our peers that have made tremendous contribution to our community.
This year, Y.E. will uphold the tradition to present awards to outstanding young startups and young entrepreneurs of the year, and we are delighted to also present "Y.E. Youth Elite of the year " to recognize our future leaders and show our support to them.
CHARITY PARTNER OF THE YEAR
Y.E. has consistently been keen on giving back and contributing to the society that we live and work in. As of today, Y.E., with the support of our generous members, has donated over $200,000 to local organizations such as the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation, Burnaby Hospital Foundation and Chinese Canadian Museum.
This year, we are beyond excited to fundraise for the Vancouver Art Gallery's Institute of Asian Art. As VGA's new $400 Million Gallery project is under development, Y.E. will be supporting the Institute of Asian Art (IAA) to demonstrate Asian cultural heritage and art work in order to connect the East and West.
IAA's website: https://www.vanartgallery.bc.ca/asian-art
The Vancouver Art Gallery launched the Institute of Asian Art (IAA) in October 2014. This initiative serves as a focal point in the region for exhibitions and public programs relating to both historical and contemporary Asian art.
IAA's vision is to profoundly affect the ways in which audiences in this country come to understand and celebrate the cultures of Asia, and facilitate a deeper understanding between cultures.
ELITE AWARD 2023
"Elite Award is an essential award to recognize Vancouver's young entrepreneurs and startups" - Y.E.
Since 2017, Y.E. has nominated over 27 young outstanding individuals and businesses at our Annual Year-End Gala. Those selected as Young Elite of the Year are entrepreneurial pioneers, successful young professionals and philanthropic contributors who have made a difference in this community we live in. They actively innovate and implement ideas into reality that have significant impacts on the growth of this city for both business and community contribution.
At Y.E. Annual Gala 2023, we will continue to nominate young and extraordinary individuals with our "Young Elite Award" to recognize their success and contribution to our community. This year we are thrilled to announce a brand new "Youth Elite Award" to recognize teenagers that have demonstrated outstanding leadership and potential, and to encourage them to keep working hard as Y.E. and all our members will be here to support their development.
