Galas galas everywhere. First up was North Vancouver’s Braemar elementary school where parents and friends donned Mardi Gras beads and masks to celebrate “Arti Gras”. There was music, a casino, silent auction, food, drink – and a live auction of 20 “art-irondack” chairs each painted and decorated by a classroom in the school. Overall the gang raised $22,000 – good job. Next, it was the Red Cross Red Carpet Soiree held at West Vancouverite Jack Evrensel’s fabulous Blue Water Cafe. Sushi, a live auction, raffle prizes and more helped raise funds for this very worthwhile cause.


01 – Beautiful Red Carpet Soiree co-chairs Renee Fischer and Erin Treloar welcome guests on the red carpet at Blue Water.

02 – Red Carpet Soiree volunteer Alex Cubitt peeps out from behind a pair of disco red flashing glasses as she sells raffle tickets for the night.

03 – Red Carpet Soiree past president Anita Cheng, seen here with guest Jean Paul Walden, had to forgo her duties this year as she is soon to be a new mommy. Congrats.
