Vancouver 18th Annual Century Plaza Hotel & Spa - Women's Media Golf Classic

May 17, 2006

By Catherine Barr


The 18th Annual Century Plaza Hotel & Spa - Women's Media Golf Classic was held last Wednesday for Variety Club "The Chldren's Charity" and the new Variety Learning Centre. Tournament founders and hotel/spa owners Wendy and Sergio Cocchia put together a sunny day of fun and golf at Country Meadows for all of the lady golfers followed by a gourmet meal, live and silent auctions at the Century Plaza Hotel and the "Dream Wish Presentations" for kids. All 100% of funds raised at the tournament go to support the kids' charities.

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.
