Spring is gala season! So what better way to celebrate than to raise money for your school. That was what the parents at West Vancouver’s Ecole Pauline Johnson did last week via their talented Parents’ Advisory Committee (PAC) with the Samba Till Sunrise fundraiser and art auction. Hollyburn Country Club was decked out in colours as everyone got into the theme. But what made this event extra special was the many professional art items put up for bid which were created by the kids in conjunction with famous name artists like Bobbie Burgers and Brent Comber. Congrats to all involved.
