North Shore Rotarians from both North and West Vancouver chapters came together last weekend to raise funds for North Shore Youth programs at this very special night out. The North Shore Rotary Wine & Food Festival was held last weekend at West Vancouver’s Park Royal Shopping Centre. Featuring food and wine from local restaurants and suppliers, the evening gave guests a chance to sup, sip and sample from a wide selection of delicious options. Live music, raffle prizes and more equalled a great neighbourhood event for a very worthwhile cause.
