Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

Athletics for Kids will be hosting their 10th annual fundraising gala March 30, 2012 with a Vegas Night theme.

Established in 2002, Athletics for Kids (“A4K”) provides financially disadvantaged youth in the community with greater access to organized sport in conjunction with their academic endeavours. “A4K’s overarching goal is to be there to assist any B.C. child in their dream of playing amateur sports. In other words, we want all kids to have the opportunity to play.”

The organization is a privately funded charity who helps families bear the expense of having their children participate in organized sports. The support of A4K is available province-wide for children ages 5 to 18 who are currently enrolled in school.

In the past, the Athletics for Kids annual gala has funded 1,500 sporting activities for children and youth who otherwise would have been left watching from the sidelines.

Individual tickets for Vegas Night are available now for $175 (or 10 for $1,500) and the evening will include a complimentary cocktail reception with gaming stations for guests to try their luck, a gourmet three course dinner with complimentary wine served at every table, an extravagant silent and live auctions, live amateur boxing featuring talented athletes from local boxing clubs, prizes and a WestJet dream giveaway. The gala takes place at Hollyburn Country Club from 6:00pm to 11:00pm on March 30th.
