Richard bransonIt was a British invasion of sorts last week as Sir Richard Branson was back in Vancouver for the launch of Virgin Atlantic. Branson became one of the city’s most overexposed as he arrived in style on the jet early morning to greet Premier Christy Clark. Then it was lunch with the Board of Trade followed by a charity photo op with Glee star Cory Monteith. A private VIP evening reception was then followed by the party of all parties at the Commodore featuring young UK singer Conor Maynard. Also last week, it was the BC Centre for Ability’s Dining for Dreams gala. Chaired by CTV news anchor Tamara Taggart, the evening also featured Real Housewives of Vancouver star and West Vancouverite Ronnie Seterdahl Negus and her daughter Remington. Congrats to all involved.

01 – What a pleasure meeting rising star and singer Conor Maynard. Headlining at the Virgin Atlantic superparty at the Commodore, this young man is being dubbed the UK’s Justin Bieber and is well on his way to fame and fortune.

02 – Living life as an adventurer is hard work. Just ask Sir Richard Branson who went from early morning until late night greeting guests and VIPs in Vancouver at the launch of Virgin Atlantic.

03 – Helping support the BC Centre of Ability are West Vancouverites Richard and Heidi Coglan at the Dining for Dreams gala at the Four Seasons.

04 – Real Housewives of Vancouver star Reiko Mackenzie is known for her fast cars and fabulous fitness regime. This night, she and husband Sunny are thrilled to be supporting the BC Centre for Ability.

05 – Mother Ronnie Seterdahl Negus has spent the last nine years looking after daughter Remington’s special needs. But nothing was so frightening for the family as last February when ‘Remy’ almost died in Ronnie’s arms due to a piece of steak that had lodged itself in her windpipe and then lung. Thankfully, Remington recovered and this night mother and daughter are pairing up to support Dining for Dreams.

06 – Event chair Tamara Taggart, left, a mother of three herself, teams up with fellow CTV news gal Mi-Jung Lee who is happy to be the evening’s MC.

07 – Musician Dave Genn, of 54-40 and Matthew Good Band fame, left, chats with CTV news anchor Mike Killeen, who hails from North Vancouver, at the Dining for Dreams gala.

08 – Ronnie Seterdahl Negus, of Real Housewives of Vancouver fame, poses with son Jhordan Stevenson and husband Russell Negus.
