Dr. Peter Centre Vancouver - Passions II

Sep 18, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Vancouver physician Dr. Peter Jepson-Young was passionate about providing comfort care to people living with AIDS/HIV. In his memory, the Dr. Peter Centre was built and today dedicates its efforts to this cause. The appropriately named "Passions II" fundraising event was held last Sunday night at the centre featuring food by some of the city's top restaurants, live music and a silent auction full of spectacular items.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

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.
