BallardWest Vancouver Chamber of Commerce held its annual Christmas party at Capilano Golf and Country Club this month. It was a fabulous dress-up affair complete with cocktail reception, live music and both silent and live auction items. And even as much as Capilano is known for their fabulous food, this year staff outdid themselves with one of the absolutely best buffets I have ever experienced. Another big highlight was a surprise visit from The Grinch and two of his “Will Ferrell” elf-like assistants whose costumes and antics kept everyone entertained.
