Over the last five years the gala has raised $440,000 for Reach’s capital campaign that culminated in the opening of a new centre for children in Ladner earlier this year. Funds from this year’s gala will help complete the building project.

Vancouver Fraser Port Authorityhas stepped forward again this year to be the presenting sponsor and CAPTIN Toyota returns as platinum sponsor.  

Reach for the Stars Gala 2018 will be held at Tsawwassen Springs and will feature a seated, three-course dinner as well as an auction, raffle and entertainment.

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach will play live jazz at the opening reception and a performance from the May Day ClubYouth Choir, including members with autism, will be featured.

Stories from Reach program families will be presented to raise awareness of the help available to children and youth with special needs.

Reach has been providing services and programs to children with special needs and their families for over 50 years.
