Dave Babych Fishing Derby at Le Bistro in North Vancouver

Jul 21, 2005

By Catherine Barr


He had one of the NHL's most memorable moustaches - so much so, that even now this former Canuck remains a big fan favourite. Dave Babych started the Babych and Friends Anglers Challenge and Charity Auction almost eight years ago in support of the CHILD Foundation of British Columbia. Last Thursday, at Le Bistro in North Van, friends and supporters came out in force to help battle in the fight against Crohn's disease and colitis. Congrats to all involved.

Canuck hero Dave Babych (right) teamed up this night with Le Bistro owner Philippe Segur for a fabulous night of fundraising.
Cashing out all the money raised at the silent auction were volunteers Jane West (front left), Deanna Marzin-Schuss (back left), Christina Singeris (back right) and Susan Marraffa.
Any event organizer knows that it's all the hard work done behind the scenes that counts the most. Big thanks go to Barb Oswald-Allen (left), Deb Janzen, Doya Sakata and Diana Babych.
Selling lots of lots of raffle wine tickets for charity were Mika Janzen (left), Joanne Sharkevich, Jaret Babych and Kolton Babych.
North Shore Credit Union's Mike Watson, seen here with wife Gill (left), donated generously to the event along with Esso's tiger-go-getter and newly elected NV Chamber director Karim Chandani, seen here with wife Shala.
We loved him as a Canuck, but his Stanley Cup winning season with Calgary still stands out. Big defenceman Dana Murzyn and son Tyler took in all the action.
Former MLA Grace McCarthy established the CHILD foundation in 1995 when her granddaughter was diagnosed with Crohn's. Michelle Corday (left) can sympathize as brother Shayne battles the same. This night the Corday family donated $5,000 to the cause.
