Van Mag Power 50 Reception at Vancouver Club

Dec 7, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Vancouver Magazine voted them the Power 50 - a list of the most powerful and influential people in Vancouver. And earlier this month it was a chance to meet and greet this select few at a special five-star reception at the Vancouver Club. A busy holiday season prevented many on the list from attending in person but each one was recognized for their individual achievements and success.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

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.

BMW dealer Brian Jessel and Amber Webster were among the guests present to honour the listees.
On the list - B.C. Supreme Court judge Wally Oppal is now the province's Attorney General. He and City TV's Prem Gill chatted at the reception.
CTV-9 anchor Coleen Christie and the Westender writer Steve Burgess co-hosted the event and took care of the announcements.
Look for Sandeep "Sunny" Gupta, of Ric's Grill Whistler fame, to open a new location here in Vancouver soon.
Sampling the crab claws, shrimp and seafood were guests Marina Sedlic, Rocky Elli and Chella Levesque.
New Vancouver Mayor Sam Sullivan and partner Lynn are a true power couple who know what it takes to overcome adversity.
