North Van Community Arts Council 35th Anniversary
Sweetheart Ball and Gala

Feb 12, 2005

By Catherine Barr


The North Vancouver Community Arts Council celebrated their 35th anniversary with a special Valentine's theme gala for all. The Sweetheart Ball, held at North Van's Fell Armoury, featured live music by the Deep Cove Swing Band and a special cabaret performance by "A String of Girls" as well as hors d'ouevres, dessert and coffee bar and lots of silent auction items. Guests filled and dance floor and partied until the wee hours for this very worthwhile cause.

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.
