Special Olympics British Columbia

Sports Celebrities Festival

The Sports Celebrities Festival presented by Silver Wheaton is an inspiring and interactive gala celebrating the power of sport and the human spirit.

The 2015 SCF was held October 20 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West - check out the event recap.

Now in its 17th year, this popular gala has raised $4 million in support of Special Olympics BC and the Canucks for Kids Fund.

Funds help empower athletes with intellectual disabilities to gain confidence, acceptance, and pride through sport, and also provide vital opportunities, resources, and care to children and families throughout B.C.

Event highlights:

  • Meet and mingle with local sports heroes, including the entire Canucks roster, Special Olympics athletes, and more
  • Three-course dinner
  • Challenge Canucks players in great games such as table hockey
  • Photos with your favourite Canuck
  • Silent and live auctions
  • Live entertainment
