Vancouver Resource Investment Conference Gala Awards Dinner - Go for the Gold

Jan 22, 2005

By Catherine Barr


The Vancouver Resource Investment Conference attracted over 6,000 delegates this past weekend to Canada Place. Anything but boring, the "Go for the Gold" Gala Awards Dinner featured both a live and silent auction, and entertainment by the likes of Abba-Cadabra, Ache Brasil and the Russell Marsland Band. Raising money for Alpine Canada, these Howe street heavies were hip to the cause.
