Spring is always the busy season for events, so what better way to catch up than to take a look back at a few highlights. The 15th Annual Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Ball, held at the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel, attracted many North Shore guests to a wonderfully glamorous evening with TV funny man Rick Mercer. Next, Capilano University honoured some of their own at their elegant Awards of Excellence night at the Vancouver Club. Meanwhile, it was time for hot dogs and even hotter digs at a barbecue lunch/launch of Adera’s new Seven35 condo development in North Vancouver. And last week, Capilano Suspension bridge peeps invited everyone to take a walk on the wild side with the opening night party of their newest attraction – Cliffwalk – which gives visitors a whole new way to step out on the town.
