Rotary Wine Gala at North Vancouver's Capilano Mall

Oct 15, 2005

By Catherine Barr


For the past six years, the Rotary clubs on the North Shore have hosted The North Shore Wine Festival at North Van's Capilano Mall. Featuring wines from approximately 40 wine merchants and food from a dozen different local restaurants, the event is so popular that the entire mall is filled with people sipping and supping. Live music and a silent auction added to the fundraising efforts which will all be donated to North Shore Rescue and other Rotary-sponsored

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.
