All month long, West Vancouver’s Mangia e Bevi restaurant has been raising money for oncology research through their third annual “Festa Invernale”. Called B.A.C.I.O (Because a Cure is Obtainable), it is a cause close to the hearts of owners Doug Grisdale, Rob Parrott and Antonio Sauro, all of whom have had family members affected by this cancer. Last Sunday, the final celebration dinner took place featuring surprise musical guests Adam Woodall and Canadian country music star Jessie Farrell. A surprise cheque for $27,000 helped the group raise a total of $50,000 for the BC Children’s Hospital and Lions Gate Hospital Oncology Clinic.


01 – Chef Rob Parrott has cooked up a storm all month long to raise money for his daughter Julia and her fight against cancer.

02 – Canadian Country Music Award winner Jessie Farrell and her band mates, Jesse Tucker, left, and Jesse Godin, were happy to donate the gift of music to this good cause.

03 – Restaurateur Antonio Sauro, left, welcomes guests Karen and John MacPhail to the fundraising dinner.

04 – Checking out the live music and more are guests Beth Thompson and Rex Panther.

05 – I’m a big fan of local musician Adam Woodall who gladly donated his time to help out this night.

06 – Tina and Carey Mobius cuddle up during the cocktail reception.

07 – Owner Doug Grisdale chats with Macquarie Group of Companies VP Ross Henderson and wife Elaine and thanks them for all their help in putting on this final event.
