Las vegas showgirlChampionship boxing, Las Vegas showgirls, glamorous auction prizes and fabulous food. It was a ten year anniversary to remember for the folks at the Athletics for Kids (A4K) gala last weekend up at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club. Items up for grab included a Westjet trip raffle and a never before seen trip to Los Angeles to see “Dancing with the Stars” in person. But even after all these years, the message remains the same, and that’s the wish that no child be denied the right to play sports. The A4K organization was started with that goal in mind, and today, they’ve helped countless children take part in all kinds of activities that might otherwise be unavailable to them due to financial constraints or high costs. Congrats to all involved.
