Supporters of the Northwest Association for Blind Athletes gathered in downtown Vancouver on Saturday to help the organization achieve its mission.

The event was the association's fifth annual benefit dinner and auction, Creating Opportunities. It was held at the Hilton Vancouver Washington.

The organization works to support efforts promoting sports and physical activity to over 1,000 individuals of all ages and abilities who are blind or visually impaired.
