It’s one of Vancouver’s best black tie affairs, and one of this province’s best causes. The 26th annual Crystal Ball was held this month in support of the Campaign for BC Children and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Over $1.1 million was raised as prominent North Shore supporters made their way to the ballroom to join over 400 invited guests at the Four Seasons Hotel for a night of glitz and glamour. This brings the total to $155 million of the close to $200 million needed to fund a new hospital.
