Arthur Erickson Garden Party / Aids Fundraiser at West Vancouver Eppich House

Sep 11, 2005

By Catherine Barr


World-reknown architect Arthur Erickson has left his mark all over the world. His stunning works range from awe-inspiring office towers to beautifully planted garden homes for families. Last Sunday, at one of the famous West Vancouver Eppich houses, Arthur hosted "An Intimate Garden Party" fundraiser for the Vancouver AIDS Memorial Society. Beautiful food (by The Gallery Cafe, Fiddlehead Joe's, Glowbal and Urban Fare), a beautiful setting, a silent auction, art and entertainment made for a spectacular event that won't soon be forgotten.
