Variety’s 2018 Gold Heart Gala

On Saturday, April 15th, 2018, Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba hosted the Gold Heart Gala and celebrated its 40th Anniversary! The proceeds from the evening support programs and services in Manitoba that support children living with a disability. As part of the program, a selected family received a brand new Wheelchair Accessible Van! MoveMobility was the provider for the wheelchair accessible vehicle and our team enjoyed working with representatives Jeff and Amanda from Variety. MoveMobility’s Production Team worked hard to meet the requested deadlines, so that the van would be ready for the family to drive away the night of the Gala. MoveMobility also sponsored the event with a donation towards the cause.

The Surprise Vehicle

It was a complete surprise for the Bodman family when they were presented with a 2018 Rear Entry Dodge Grand Caravan! This vehicle has a manual rear ramp, which allows for easy access for their young daughter who uses a wheelchair. The Flip and Fold seats in the second row will allow her to travel close to the front of the vehicle. The Rear Entry Dodge Grand Caravan is the perfect choice for families looking to transport one or two wheelchairs at the same time as other passengers, such as small children.

The vehicle was revealed by being driven out from behind a curtain, with flashing lights and sparklers. Watch it here!

We are excited to meet the Bodman family, who will stop by MoveMobility for a visit sometime soon. It was a pleasure for MoveMobility to be included in this event. We look forward to working with Variety for any further wheelchair accessible vehicle needs that arise for this great cause!
