Dear DASCH Supporters:

After careful consideration and under the recommendations made by the Province of Manitoba, we are postponing the 2020 Possibilities Gala in support of DASCH Inc. from September 17th, 2020 to Friday, April 23rd, 2021.

The Possibilities Gala is the DASCH Foundation’s signature event that allows us to bring DASCH clients, families, and donors together in a celebration of the impact made possible by our community supporters. We look forward to doing this safely next year, with the health and comfort of all as our primary goal.

For more information on the event, ticket purchases or to secure your spot as a sponsor for the 2021 event, please contact Melanie Sifton at

On behalf of the Possibilities Gala committee and the entire DASCH community, thank you again for your support. We look forward to seeing you in the spring!

The 2021 Possibilities Gala

Honouring Dave Richardson, Stigma-Free Society Co-Founder and Philanthropist

DASCH is pleased to honour Dave Richardson with the 2021 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. Dave is a philanthropist and co-founder of the Stigma-Free Society, an organization whose mission is to promote a stigma-free culture of inclusion and understanding of all stigmas.

In addition, a 2021 Merit Award will be presented to Michael Bergman, an individual whom DASCH supports, in recognition of his outstanding accomplishments and perseverance.

The evening will included a gourmet dinner, entertainment by the Big City All Star Band, dancing, live and silent auctions and more.

Proceeds from this year’s gala will be used to support DASCHWorks, an innovative training program, designed to develop practical skills that will lead to meaningful employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The DASCHWorks program will help secure successful, long-term employment that will create inclusion and engagement within our community and will build confidence, self-esteem and greater life satisfaction for people in Manitoba with an intellectual disability.
