Liberty Art Exposed Event and Thirty for Thirty Fundraiser

Oct 19, 2006

By Catherine Barr


Last Thursday there was no shortage of parties to attend. The first was held at the Rocky Mountaineer Railway Station and featured a special fundraising birthday party for 30-year-old lawyer Warren Smith. The "Thirty for Thirty" event brought together 30 Vancouver personalities (including Mayor Sam Sullivan, Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini, YVR CEO Larry Berg and more), all in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Next, it was off to Broadway where Liberty's flagship design store played host to guests and celebs at their slightly naughty "Exposed" artists' showcase soiree.
