For over 60 years now, Family Services of the North Shore has been raising money and helping people in our community. Out of work, family distress, counselling and more are all part of what they provide to people in need. Needless to say, the holidays are an extra special time and being there to support families is very important. That’s why the great people at Family Services created the Christmas Bureau section just for this very cause. Last week, at a special “Christmas on the Shore” event, VIP guests and supporters donated $1,000 per couple and came out to enjoy an evening together at The Beach House restaurant in West Vancouver. Thanks to the generosity of the Fuller family (who are owners at the Beach House), everything this night was donated to this cause, including five-star food and more. A live auction this night also included amazing gifts like a Ross Penhall original artwork, an iPhone 5 and a corporate box for the upcoming Lady Gaga concert. Congrats to everyone involved.
