Many people were deeply touched by Gayla is so many ways. She attacked everything with passion and a brilliant smile. She believed in putting the joy back in sport and, despite being seriously injured in two car crashes, never missed a beat in that pursuit. She invested enormous time making sure kids had positive, memorable experiences. Her husband Chico is a stay at home father and he quietly shared Gayla’s passion. In recent years he obtained coaching certifications in 3 sports and coached seven teams in a single year. Chico and Jax have suffered the worst loss and their financial future is, at best, very difficult. CBBCA's goal with this benefit is simply to try and help buy a small space between the emotional trauma of the present and the difficult financial situation ahead. All of the proceeds go to Jaxon & Chico. Please go to www.cbbca.ca for tickets.
