Passion meets Potential | Dragon Boat BC Legacy Gala | May 24, 2018

Count down to the 30th anniversary of North America’s largest dragon boat festival in style at the 6th annual Dragon Boat BC Legacy Gala, Vancouver’s only charity gala event supporting accessible community water sport programs for all.

Thursday May 24, 2018
6:00 PM-Late


The Legacy Gala benefits Dragon Boat BC’s All Access programs including the Milton K. Wong Legacy Project, making sure that barriers to participating in our community are never too high to overcome. Meet teams and paddlers that can participate in sport through our All Access and Milton K. Wong Legacy Project programming, savour local produce and wines, and discover unique auction lots that help build a more inclusive community as we celebrate the start of summer.

We also launch the charitable campaign for the 2018 Barrier Free Canada Cup at the Legacy Gala, supporting nine charities around the Lower Mainland that work to create a more accessible and inclusive society.

Every dollar raised breaks down barriers to participation by allowing thousands of paddlers from every walk of life to paddle regardless of age, culture, gender, sexual orientation, financial resources, and ability. Mark your calendars for May 24, 2018; don’t miss Dragon Boat BC’s Legacy Gala, when we celebrate the results of passion and potential.
