Reach Child and Development Society’s fundraising gala Wings of Change is aptly named as it moves to an in-person format after two years of pandemic safety considerations prevented it.

The ability to socialize and connect at a star-studded event to support kids with diverse abilities is a welcome change. The community has rallied behind Reach Child and Youth Development Society to ensure that kids with needs and their families were not left behind during the pandemic. Now the non-profit organization will bring supporters together again. “I am thrilled for the opportunity to bring our incredible extended reach family and community of supporters together to celebrate our 10th annual gala in-person,” said Reach Development Manager Kristin Bibbs. “I cannot wait to see everyone after so long and to be surrounded by the generosity of spirit that emanates from such wonderful people coming together for what is always a special, heartwarming evening.”

Wings of Change is the 10th Annual Reach for the Stars Gala.

Reach applauds the long-term dedication from members of the Reach events committee –Linda Edwards, Christine Sutherland and Khya Fellingham. This year’s event would not be possible without their commitment or the significant support of Major Donor REALCO and Presenting Sponsors Ocean Trailer and Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

Reach is grateful for the support of all sponsors, prize donors, guests and volunteers involved in Reach for the Stars galas and the help that these fundraising evenings provide to children with extra needs and their families.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. on June 4 at Tsawwassen Springs.

Steve Darling returns as Master of Ceremonies and will lead guests through the evening replete with good news about how families are helped by Reach programs, a welcome cocktail, plated dinner, live and silent auctions, live music and in-person connections.
