The Wine Gala, crafted for the wine enthusiast and connoisseur, begins with a wine tasting and silent auction followed by a reception, dinner and dancing to the music of Federico.

Funds raised by the event will help to provide direct support to patients, their families, and caregivers as well as patient services and research. The event will also help to increase public awareness and understanding of ALS.

It can hit anyone, at any time, regardless of age, gender or ethnic origin. The ALS Society of BC provides equipment for mobility and communications, as well as emotional and practical support to patients and families.
