ABCD Bocce Event

Aug 21, 2004

By Catherine Barr


Playing bocce in the pouring rain takes more than balls, especially when you're knee deep in puddles, but when it's in memory of a great friend, a little wet weather just doesn't matter. Such was the case this past Saturday as the 4th Annual Bocce Celebration for David (ABCD) took place in North Vancouver. David McAdam, who died tragically of brain cancer some years ago, was the inspiration behind this fun fundraiser that not only brings together people in memory but also helps raise funds for brain cancer research. Music, prizes and food kept everyone smiling. Congrats to all you wet and wonderful people.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
