Lions Gate Hospital Foundation Chairman's Tea

Dec 15, 2003

By Catherine Barr


The Lions Gate Hospital Foundation has some very special friends that they like to thank at this time of year. Last week, in the hospital gymnasium, the foundation held their annual Chairman's Tea to recognize the members of the Legacy Society. These members are citizens who, either through a bequest, annuity or special arrangement, have "made a provision for a  future gift" to the foundation. These intended gifts mean a great deal to the organization and this special luncheon is one way to say thank you in return.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

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.

Volunteers and staff are a crucial part of the foundation. Clockwise from left front: Sharlene Ferzandi, Lynne Dowling, Debbie Berto and Laura Willis.
Enjoying sandwiches and tea were members Roy Summerfield, Margaret Armatage and Patricia Bice.
