Premier Fundraising Event
Experience the lives of great heroes of sport and adventure, who have reached their Highest Peak in sport, life and business. Our interactive Chairlift Chats will share unique journeys of athletes like Olympic Gold Medalist Brady Leman, who has reached the highest level in Canadian Ski Cross. Our Keynote speaker Mr. John Oldring; one of the oldest Canadians who summited Mt Everest in June of 2017 after a failed attempted in 2015 when his team was climbing the treacherous Khumbu Icefall on the Nepali slopes of Mt Everest and a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal and left them in a total whiteout. The eight-member team survived, but down at base camp at least 22 people died, and several were injured. Even after witnessing all of this John Oldring did not hesitate to try again. “I hadn’t reached the summit yet. The job wasn’t done.”
Enjoy the creative seasonal dinner menu designed to surprise and delight, with enticing aromas and mouthwatering flavours.
