Give Voice to Animals and Hopscotch

Nov 13 and 14, 2003

By Catherine Barr


Actor David Duchovny proved to be the perfect narrator for "Best Friend Forgotten" a documentary on pet overpopulation whose premiere screening took place last Thursday at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The 22 city tour benefits the "Give Voice to Animals" organization.

Meanwhile, Scotch and beer drinkers, young and old, descended upon the Empire Landmark Hotel for "Hopscotch" the annual "water of life" whiskey tasting event. Proceeds to the Alzheimer Society of BC.

At Animals: Teresa Ross, of Vancouver Orphan Kittens, shows off one of the latest residents, a four week-old tabby not old enough to survive on his own.
At Animals: Melissa Bragenstroth and Josh Gibbons manned the B.C. SPCA booth informing guests about their activiites.
At Animals: Meow Aid's Leanne Howes got into the spirit and lent an ear to producer/writer/director Christian Bruyere who came out for the screening.


At Hopscotch: A wee dram among friends was what it was all about. Just ask Jeff Fawcett (left), Rick Slowski and Tim Quarles.
At Hopscotch: Who says scotch and beer are just for the boys? Michelle Addison (left), Andy Hartshorne and Nicole Tolmie tried both.
At Hopscotch: Gordon Barrett signals to his BC Regiment, Duke of Connaught's Own pipers, proving that the Irish version of the bagpipe is just as entertaining.
