Rouge Fundraiser for First Weekend Club

Jul 10, 2004

By Catherine Barr


Actors, producers, television personalities, writers, directors and more gathered at the Vancouver law courts building this past weekend for a very special fundraier. The "Rouge" event consisted of a cast of industry hosts and helped raise funds for the "First Weekend Club" - a collaboration of professionals who strive to promote Canadian films in theatres. A special mention and best wishes for a speedy recovery to event organizer Rory Richards who was suddenly hospitalized with menigitis and was very much missed this night. Get well soon.

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.

Getting to know people in your industry is what events like this are made for - just ask lawyer Aren Altman (left), actress Melanie Crystal and music composer Jory Groberman.
