The North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce’s Governors’Gala took place last week at North Vancouver’s Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier. Media personality and actor Jackson Davies played MC as guests and members enjoyed an elegant evening of dining and entertainment. Presented by Neptune Terminals, the evening also included performances by Veena Sood and a live and silent auction in support of Presentation House Theatre. Also, it was time to toast the good life in Vancouver with an original wine tour hosted by New Zealand winemaker Tony Bish from Sacred Hill. Stops included Stanley Park, English Bay and Jack Poole Plaza. The day ended up at North Vancouver’s Grouse Mountain where a fabulous dinner was waiting for invited media and guests. Cheers!
