Snow Ball tickets are $100 per person, $180 per couple, $700 for a table of eight and $850 for a table of ten.

Your support at the gala will help empower individuals of all ages and Military Veterans with cognitive, sensory and physical disabilities through outdoor recreation.

Please Welcome Keynote Anna Soens:
Anna Soens is an avid mountaineer, skier and mountain biker who, in December of 2015, was left paralyzed after falling 35 feet in a climbing accident. In 2018, she defied all odds after being told she would never walk again when she summitted Oregon’s Mt. Hood with her father and friends as the first woman with paraplegia. The next year, she summited Mt. Baker, which included 8,000 feet of sit-skiing for her descent.

Anna’s accomplishments have been recognized countless times as a trailblazer from Challenged Athletes Foundation, Mount Baker Experience Magazine and other publications and radio shows. She was featured in two films: “Adapted,” (not yet released) and “The Approach,” a film highlighting and uplifting people of color, women and adaptive skiers. She is affiliated with Oregon Adaptive Sports, a similar organization to DREAM Adaptive based in Oregon.

Consistently demonstrating courage, commitment, leadership, and that dreaming big proves to be instrumental in adaptive sports, Anna is a person to meet!
