Earlier this year I signed on to be a volunteer photographer with the Special Olympics BC North Shore. On June 7 at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver, SOBC – North Shore celebrated their 30th anniversary with a “Diamond Gala”. It was a wonderful evening of celebration, acknowledgement and entertainment. The weather was perfect for the red carpet arrival, the guests were entertained by the talented Will Blunderfield and awards were presented throughout the night followed by photo sessions backstage. It felt wonderful to contribute in just a small way to this event and to be surrounded by enthusiastic volunteers and talented athletes and coaches, each one of them inspiring.
