With the state of the economy this year, and everyone counting their pennies more closely, it could be an unexpectedly tough holiday season for some. But the good folks at AllWest Insurance refused to give in to the bah-humbugs and not only decided to celebrate the season in style, but also did a little fundraising in the process. West Vancouver’s Paul and Devina Zalesky, owner of AllWest, honoured staff with a glamorous dinner party and awards banquet at Beyond Restaurant and Lounge. Looking young and trendy, their crew of over 200 came out to party and, during their 50/50 draw, also managed to raise enough money to help feed 50 needy families this Christmas. Who says giving can’t be fun?
