Odd squad galaSpring gala events continued all over town this past week as two special events stepped up to raise money for some very worthwhile causes. First up, the Odd Squad Productions Society 2012 Gala Fundraiser was held at the Vancouver Convention Centre with a sold out crowd. Founded in 1997 by seven determined Officers of the Vancouver Police Department, the Odd Squad Productions Society (OSP) first started scaring kids straight with the debut of their award-winning “Through a Blue Lens” production. Since then, their educational videos and peer-to-peer programs have been keeping kids off the streets and out of trouble. Next up, it was time for the North Vancouver City Library “Librations” 2012 gala evening. Guests dressed in black and white formal to take part in a circus themed evening which included performances by the talented Public Dreams performance group. Congrats to everyone involved.
