Allan fotheringham granddaughterThe holiday gala season would not be complete without The Arthritis Society’s 2011 Bluebird Gala. Sponsored by Scotiabank the gala style cocktail reception raised over $120,000. Entertainment for the night included music groups “LesIsMore” and “Van Django”. Comedian Patrick Maliha had everyone giggling as he sported a “Movember to remember” moustache for extra effect. Also last month, Canadian journalism icon Allan Fotheringham held a special private reception for friends and family for the launch of his newest book – a collection of memories entitled “Boy From Nowhere – A Life in Ninety-One Countries”. With some tell-all secrets from the past, and a warning for the future, this book is a must read.
