The Blind Beginnings Growing Potential Gala 2022 took place over the weekend on April 30, 2022 and was a phenomenal success!
A HUGE thank you to everyone who attended or supported this year’s Gala. It was such a thrilling event for us, given that it was the first time that we were able to gather as a community for over three years. We filled the Pavilion Ballroom at the Sheraton Wall Centre with over 175 people and were treated to amazing food, wonderful musical performances, and incredibly moving speeches and presentations.
We are so pleased to announce that the evening raised over $60,000! Thanks to our attendees, Gala sponsors, and donors, we surpassed what we had hoped for and this money will help fund many of our programs for the coming year. The evening’s success would not have been possible without the generosity of everyone who contributed their time, energy, donations, and support to this incredibly important annual fundraising event.
We also would like to once again thank our co-sponsor for the evening, Onni Group, as well as our other sponsors, PCI Developments, Acuitas Therapeutics, and Accessible Media Inc.
And while we are giving thanks, we can’t forget our unsung heroes, our volunteers. The night could not have been a success without every single one of them. They gave our team invaluable assistance and support during every stage of the Gala, from planning and organization to set-up and assisting during the Gala itself. We couldn’t have done it without them!
Thank you once again for believing in our mission to inspire and support children and youth who are blind or partially sighted and their families all across British Columbia.
