Reach for the Stars gala to fund children’s centre

The annual gala helps support Delta’s REACH society

The gala, being held at the Tsawwassen Springs Ballroom on June 2, will feature a three-course dinner, as well as an auction and raffle during the evening. Gabriel Mark Hasselbach will play live jazz during the reception, beginning at 5 p.m. The May Day Club Youth Choir, which includes members will autism, will also do a performance. Steve Darling, a former Global BC anchor and current co-host of Sports650, will return to emcee the evening.

Stories from REACH program families will be shared throughout the event to raise awareness for the help available to children and youth with special needs.

Tickets for the gala are $135 and available online at www.reachgala.com or by calling 604-946-6622 extension 0. Those interested in donating a live or silent auction item, or volunteering during the night of the event, are asked to contact Kristin Bibbs at kristinb@reachchild.org or at 604.946.6622 extension 367.
