We attended the Black Diamond Gala held by the BC Adaptive Snowsports at the Westin Bayshore last night, which is a charity offering adaptive skiing, snowboarding and overall accessibility to mountain activity for individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities. Great cause and great event! Thanks to BridgePoint Financial for providing support to such a great organization. It was an inspirational fundraising event and was great to see that over $30,000 was raised in the live auction alone.
