Ed begley jr vancouverYou might remember him best from his role in St. Elsewhere or from his comedy roles in Christopher Guest movies like This is Spinal Tap, but actor Ed Begley Jr is also a lean, green, environmental machine who says that his biggest responsibility is helping out Mother Nature. Speaking at the Real Estate Foundation of BC’s 2012 Land Awards last week, the Hollywood star was the toast of the night. Award winners, guests and VIPs enjoyed a gala dinner night which ended with a book signing, a live dance band and great memories. Also last week, at the Westin Bayshore, the Canucks Place Children’s Hospice’s Gift of Time Gala saw lots of North Shore faces mixing and mingling in their black tie best. Decorated to look like a magical wonderland, this premiere gala event always attracts Vancouver’s elite for a very worthwhile cause.
