West Van FounDation Disco Gala

Oct 16, 2004

By Catherine Barr


The West Vancouver Foundation's annual gala is always a classy affair however the last 2-3 years have seen the gala go from plain formal, to just plain fun. This year the theme was "Saturday Night Fervor" and the gym at Hollyburn Country Club was transformed into an authentic 1970's disco club. Live dance performances, music, entertainment, silent and live auction items were all part of the fundraising fun. And just when you thought you'd seen it all, the dance floor came alive with coloured light panels allowing guests to really get up and boogie and night away.

Thunderbird Marina's Linda and Bob Welch were hardly recognizable with their big afros, zebra prints and truly 70's sunglasses.
Volunteers Kristie Nesterman (left) and Erin Sutherland helped foundation executive assistant Delaina Bell sell the disco guitar pins.
Foundation chair Bruce Milley looked spectacular in satin as did wife Lea who worked hard behind the scenes to make it all happen.
Proving that sequins are still chic were Zoi and Tim Brown who positively sparkled in their disco best. Yea baby.
Restauranteur and aspiring politician Blair Wilson (left) was happy to lend his support along with wife Kelly and WV Chamber president Sean Allen.
They're anything except passe. West Van Foundation past chairs Cowan McKinney, Jo-Anne Wood and Tom Baillie teamed up for a pic.
Can we assume from the outfit that Park Royal's Rick Amantea, seen here with Christine Kronert, was part Mod or part Hippy in his younger days??
So many seats, so little time. Naomi Chard poured over the seating plan which included tables named after famous disco era personalities.
