The Children’s Wish Foundations of Canada, BC and Yukon Chapter, held their inaugural gala this past week in spectacular surroundings at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Entitled simply “Wish”, the night was a wonderland of light and glamour as invited guests enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails and canapes in the gallery’s top floor terrace. After it was time to proceed downstairs for an elegant dinner by Hawksworth Restaurant. Live and silent auction items helped round out the night which raised over $80,000 which will go towards granting extra special wishes for children and their families.
