Sep 29, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Some well-known West Van gals put their heads, and their hearts, togther last week for one stylishly special charity fundrasier. The "Celebrity Fashion Gala 2005" was held at Sinclair Centre and featured over 12 different food and wine tables, raffle prizes and a fashion show featuring styles by Leone's and models from the Vancouver Canucks. Over $251,000 was raised in support of Variety Learning Centre & Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

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.
