House of Distinction is an exclusive private supper club series where invited guests are able to support charity while enjoying the grandeur of stunning homes. It twists the traditional charity dinner into a unique and captivating evening full of lustre. The social series was created and is produced by Brink Events. House of Distinction aims to revolutionize the gala experience with a truly remarkable guest experience, while minimizing expenses and maximizing funds for charity. The series offers a vast array of benefits to guests including access to stunning multi-million dollar residences, reception-style dinner with world-class delicacies, complimentary beverage service, exceptional entertainment, limousine transportation, and most importantly – a prominent, invite-only guestlist.
This very first event, “House of Distinction I”, took place in October 2015. It was a collaboration between the Victoria Cool Aid Society and Brink Events. Though ambitious goals were set out, the end experience and fundraising totals blew away expectations. Guests were treated to a world-class experience that included a pre-event reception, limousine service, an opera performance, and scotch tastings in the wine cellar among other highlights – all in a beautiful $10 million home. And even more importantly, this first House of Distinction gala ended up raising over $72,000 (after costs) for the charity, becoming their largest single-event fundraiser in history.
