Reach holding its fifth annual gala in Tsawwassen

Reach Child and Youth Development Society recently announced its fifth annual Reach for the Stars gala will be held on April 8.

Gala proceeds benefit Reach's Building for Children Together campaign, responsible for raising the funds to make the construction of a new children's centre across from the Ladner Pioneer Library a reality.

Over the last four years, Reach for the Stars has raised $340,000 towards the Building for Children Together campaign's $5.6 million fundraising goal. This year, Reach is hoping to raise $120,000 with the help of individuals and businesses in the community.

Toyota CAPTIN and Port of Vancouver have stepped up to be presenting sponsors of the Grand Gala: Passion for Potential.

Event volunteers behind the scenes play a massive role in making the gala happen. Volunteers plan the event for months as well as manage an abundance of details on event night. Why do they do it? The response is unanimous: they have a passion to support what Reach Society does for the community.

Held at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn, Reach for the Stars Gala 2017 will offer heartwarming stories from families who have received help from Reach programming as well as musical entertainment, a three-course seated dinner and live and silent auctions.

Kelly Latremouille, morning host on LG104.3 and a Tsawwassen resident, will MC this year.

Tickets are $125 each and available by calling 604-946-6622 ext. 0 or online at

If you are interested in helping Reach by donating a live or silent auction item, or volunteering the night of the event, contact Kristin at or at 604-946-6622 ext. 367.
