DABC’s Fall Fling: Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who joined us last night for Fall Fling 2018; we greatly appreciate your support of DABC’s work! This was a special gala as we were also celebrating Jane Dyson’s legacy and retirement, and we were pleased to see you all there.

At the gala, we played a video tribute to Jane featuring interviews from some of the people who’ve worked with her over her 20 years at DABC. Thank you to the Law Foundation of BC for providing us with funding for this project and to everyone else who helped make the video possible. And, of course, to all the people featured in the video who provided such touching messages for Jane.
