The Possibilities Gala 2019
Honouring Winnipeg Jets Alumnus Jim Kyte
On Friday, June 7, 2019 at the RBC Convention Centre, 375 York Avenue in Winnipeg, we honoured Winnipeg Jets Alumnus and Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame Inductee Jim Kyte with the 2019 Recognition Award. This award is presented annually to an individual, organization or corporation making significant contributions to the well-being of children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities provincially, nationally and globally. Jim shared his story of triumph and success as the first deaf hockey player to join the National Hockey League.
In addition, the 2019 Merit Award was presented at the Gala to Craig Wakeford, an individual whom DASCH supports in recognition of his outstanding accomplishments and perseverance.
The evening included a pre-event reception, dinner, entertainment by the Big City All Star Band, dancing and a live auction. The evening was hosted by Curt Keilback.
