Frank Sinatra Tribute at West Vancouver's Stittgen Jewelry

Jul 28, 2006

By Catherine Barr


The sun-filled deck atop Stittgen Jewelry in Walker Place was where guests gathered last Friday for "Hardy Hansen's Tribute to Frank Sinatra". Designed as a fundraiser for the Cancer Clinic at Lions Gate Hospital, Frank Sinatra impersonator Hardy Hansen and comedian David C. Jones entertained everyone all evening long. There was also a fashion show and a silent auction where guests bid on all kinds of beautiful donated items and rare gifts.
