Can you name the sexy figure with wings who only rolls with celebrities, royalty or the very very wealthy? If you said Rolls-Royce’s “The Spirit of Ecstasy”, then you’d be right. The silver hood ornament, created by sculptor Charles Sykes, has adorned every Rolls-Royce since February 1911 and this year, the company is celebrating her 100 year anniversary with some very swanky city to city parties. West Vancouver’s elite were invited to commemorate this milestone recently at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Vancouver. The night included food from C Restaurant, libations from Belvedere Vodka, and live music from Ten Souljers. It was an evening of luxury, beauty and elegance as everyone got a chance to glimpse cars from Rolls-Royce’s Spirit of Ecstasy Centenary Collection. Me, I’ll take the convertible black one please.


01 – Vancouver Developer James Schouw, left, known for his construction of beautiful iconic buildings like the “Grace” and “Iliad”, meets West Vancouver powerhouse philanthropist and businesswoman Lenora Gates and hubby Bob Repchuk.

02 – With offices in New York and Vancouver, Fino Lino owners Bill and Lauren Perssons always epitomize luxury and elegance and are known for their generosity to charitable causes.

03 – You can dress him up, but he still needs the girls to look good. Cheers to my AM650 Radio morning show co-host Gerry O’Day, seen here with Rolls-Royce models Chelsey, left, and Taylor Lewis. Next up, Gerry will head to Turkey for the 2011 Istanbul Marathon on behalf of Canadian Diabetes.

04 – AllWest Insurance owner and Rolls-Royce Centenary sponsor Devina Zalesky poses with Research Capital’s Carla Radiuk in one of the featured Spirit of Ecstasy collectable cars. It’s yours for a mere $450,000.

05 – Checking out the cars and the canapes are businessman Jim Shepard, left, singer/actress Karen Holness, and West Vancouverite Martin Charlwood, of Century 21 and Uniglobe fame.

06 – The always delicious Harry Kambolis, of C Restaurant, Raincity Grill and Nu Restaurant fame, generously helps sponsor the event which is organized with style by the talented Kari Kylo.
