Vancouver Fringe Festival 20th Anniversary Reunion Night


Gordie Howe United Way Fundraiser

Sep 8, 2004

By Catherine Barr


The social scene was hopping last week as two big time events attracted a lot of attention. On Sep. 7, the Sutton Place hosted an United Way fundraiser featuring Mr. Hockey himself, Gordie Howe. Your $100 ticket included a fashion show, book signing and casino night featuring Canucks players as dealers. Also, last week, the Vancouver Fringe Festival kicked off its 20th year with a special reunion show at Granville Island which gave those involved over the years a chance to celebrate in style.

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.

Reunion show host and Fringe performer Jacques Lalonde looked very debonaire for the opening night show.



The Fringe is just buzzing with praise for Charles Ross's one man Lord of the Rings where Sir Ian McKellen (aka Gandalf in the film) came out to see him in person. Seen here with partner Lisa Hebden, he also performs a one man Star Wars Trilogy as well.
Gordie Howe, seen here with United Way and event supporters Karim and Shala Chandani, signed over 300 copies of his book.
Canucks' spitfire Matt Cooke, seen here at the United Way event with wife Michelle, took his turn behind the blackjack table to deal some winning hands.
Canucks' centreman Brendan Morrison chatted with fans like Sultan Bhulji of Serenity Hair Lounge during the United Way event.
