GALA 2013

imagineBeats of Africa
Presented by KPMG
6th Annual Fundraising Event
Held Saturday, March 2, 2013
Vancouver Convention Centre

We are pleased to announce that “Beats of Africa” raised close to $220,000 net for our school and adult program. This huge success could not have been accomplished without the support of our presenting sponsor KPMG, platinum and gold sponsors, gala committee members, volunteers, auction donors and generous guests! The dream decor trio, Homa, Hilary and Colin took us on an unbelievable adventure to Africa. THANK YOU!
