Seymour's Pub North Vancouver wine Fundraiser

Dec 1, 2004

By Catherine Barr


Seymour's Pub in North Van is one popular hot spot that is already well into the spirit of giving this season. Last week the pub invited 170 special guests for an exclusive wine tasting and auction to raise funds for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Five wineries, with more than 40 wuines, participated and guests got a chance to rate their favourites.Trips, team memorabilia and more were on the auction block.They hope to raise $50,000 in six months and thanks to the generosity of this crowd, they just might make it.

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.
