The National Ability Center held the annual Red, White & Snow fundraising events in March, including the Gala Dinner and Auction at Montage Deer Valley on March 9. The event, hosted by comedian Bill Engvall, was the culmination of the fundraiser. Wounded Warrior, Toby Montoya, who earned a Bronze Star and Purple Heart, gave a speech, as did Lisa Speckman, a National Ability Center participant. Auction items included trips to Bali, Tuscany, Hawaii and New York City, as well as a fighter pilot experience. Guests could also enter to win a $16,000 safari to the Amazon and Galapagos Islands. Twenty-one vinters participated in Red, White & Snow this year. The fundraiser is essential to the NAC's mission to provide adaptive recreation for people of all abilities.
