It’s always a golden occasion at The Heart and Stroke Foundation gala. Entitled the “Heart of Gold”, this ninth annual fundraising event is always a reminder that heart disease is still a number one killer and that early detection and a healthy lifestyle are what we all need to practice to survive. A special pre-gala reception was held this month at the palatial West Vancouver waterfront home of Goldcorp’s Ian Telfer. As presenting sponsor, Goldcorp has been instrumental in bringing The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s message to the forefront. Invited guests also enjoyed a talk by Dr. Max Cynadar, brain specialist, on the affects of stroke, the brain and the body. The Heart of Gold gala takes place this weekend.
