Vancouver – On March 3, 2016, the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC is hosting its second Life Without Limits Gala. The gala is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the CPABC and includes a sit-down dinner, great entertainment, and an amazing selection of live and silent auction items, including a helicopter vacation to Victoria and Disney World Tickets.
The Honourable Carla Qualtrough, MP for Delta, Minister of Sports and Persons with Disabilities, will be giving opening remarks. Before she was elected in 2015, Ms Qualtrough was a human rights lawyer and competed in the 1988 and 1992 Winter Paralympics.
Neuroscientist and SFU Professor of Applied Sciences Dr Ryan D’Arcy will be speaking about how the latest research and technology is unleashing the hidden potential within our brains. Dr D’Arcy has created brain vital signs, led VR brain surgery breakthroughs, and discovered activity in elusive brain white matter. He’s most famous for his work with Captain Trevor Greene, who is reaching new heights following a devastating axe attack in Afghanistan.
The proceeds from the gala go to towards improving the CPABC’s programs and services, which include: Dance Without Limits for children, adapted yoga for youth, campership subsidies, educational bursaries, equipment assistive devices, expressive arts, youth support group, pre-employment training, community connection series, accessing CSIL, advocacy support and family and individual support program.
The gala will be held at the Chateau Granville Best Western Plus in downtown Vancouver from 6 to 9 PM.
Early-bird tickets are only $99 and are available until February 4, 2016.
