For Antonia Beck

Dear Ms Beck,

On behalf of Angie Kwok, Executive Director of the BC Centre for Ability I am reaching out in hopes that you and your staff and/or Board at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House will be able to attend our upcoming Dining for Dreams Gala on May 25th at the beautiful Fairmont Waterfront Hotel. We would welcome your support with a table or ticket purchase as we celebrate outstanding Heroes of Ability aged 4-32 years old and raise funds in support of our outreach programs including outfitting our lending toy library and essential therapy equipment with the best supplies to help our youngest clients with disabilities.

If your schedule avails you can purchase your tickets (portion is tax deductible) by going to We’d be happy to invoice you as well. Please let me know how I can help you in any way.

Thank you in advance

Maya Dimapilis
Director of Development
