Grammy-award winning musician Sarah McLachlan and her Music Outreach (Arts Umbrella) program hit a high note last week thanks to producer Jeff Dawson and friends. The second annual Vancouver Music Industry (VMI) golf tournament and gala, held at the Kingston Tap House, featured stunning auction items, like autographed guitars by The Police and Nickelback, and live entertainment by up-and-coming local musicians. And while they were making music uptown, downtown on Davie they were dancing the night away at the opening of The Majestic. Formerly known as the Fresgo Inn, this revamped lounge and eaterie rolled out the red carpet complete with live entertainment and a feast fit for a queen . . . or two.
