December 2006 Events in Vancouver

Dec 21, 2006

By Catherine Barr


It was a December to remember in most parts of the city. Thanks to the storms, some holiday events sufferred, but this past month proved to be anything but boring. The the 2007 Canadian Cancer Society Diamond Ball Advisory Council Kick-off Cocktail Party was held at the CTV studios during a snowstorm. Artist David Antonides' Manhattan/Vancouver exhibit drew oohs and aahs amid the boil water advisories and even a windstorm couldn't break the spirit of a nostalgic luncheon given in honour of the new restoration / renovation of the Hotel Georgia just this week.

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

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.
