Live jazz, celebrity blackjack, martini and whiskey tastings and fabulous food. It was a celebration to remember this past weekend as the Adoptive Families Association of BC held their gala fundraiser in the history Stanley Park Pavilion. Fabulous auction items helped raise even more money, the most popular of which was a custom Fire in the Kitchen package cooked and served by some of the city’s most handsome firefighters.
