The Walrus Gala 2024
In Conversation

Co-chaired by Jennifer F. Longhurst and Zai Mamdani

On Wednesday, May 15, 2024, over 300 guests came out to Ricarda’s Atrium in Toronto to be In Conversation at The Walrus Gala.

Together we raised over $500,000 in support of fact-based journalism and conversations around the most important issues of the day.

A huge thanks to all of our sponsors, distinguished guests, and generous supporters for a truly incredible evening.
