Gilbert Gottfried at Vancouver Funny Bone, Mask-4-Aids, and Pret-a-Pour-Tea

Oct 14, 2006

It was time for tea at Hycroft house last Wednesday where the Pret-a-Pour-Tea event helped raise money for breast cancer. A little comedy at Vancouver's newest club followed over the weekend at Vancouver's Funny Bone in the Edgewater Casino at the Plaza of Nations. And finally, in preparation for Halloween, the Mask-4-Aids Charity Masquerade Ball on Saturday Night gave guests at the Four Season quite a fancy fright.

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.

Comedy headliner Gilbert Gottfried, who is probably best know for the voice of Iago in Disney's "Aladdin", appeared last weekend at Vancouver's Funny Bone, the newest venue to feature live stand-up in town.

Local artists created one-of-a-kind masks which were on display at various galleries prior to the Mask-4-Aids Event. Winning bidders, like Randy Johnstone, then got the chance to wear them to the gala.

The inaugural Prêt-a-Pour-Tea event was highlighted by a real "high tea" featuring scones and cream, a silent auction and fashions by Blushing Designs.
