An astonishing $105,000 was raised to support PAL’s integral rental assistance program in the fall. Host Christopher Gaze (Artistic Director and Founder of Bard on the Beach) inspired a filled to capacity theatre with special guests Michael Robinson ((Executive Director of the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art); Dawn Brennan (Director, Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance); and legendary BC performers Roma Hearn, Judy Ginn and Jim Walchuk.
