Coleen christie ctvThe penguins weren’t the only ones dressed in tuxedos recently as the Vancouver Aquarium held its’ 6th annual Night at the Aquarium gala fundraiser. The champagne and caviar were also plentiful, as were the offerings from many of Vancouver’s top restaurants and wineries who all came out to support the many programs and services offered by one of Vancouver’s most popular places. A live mermaid greeted guests at the door and later on, even the dolphins and whales got in on the act before the evening wrapped up with the live auction and dessert. Over $316,433 was raised. Congrats to all involved.
