Benefits of Bocce in North Vancouver

Aug 18, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


The 7th Annual Benefits of Bocce Tournament took place last Saturday at the Bocce pits on Grand Boulevard in North Vancouver. I fondly remember the very first time I met this wonderful group some seven years ago and how they started this fun, life affirming tournament as a tribute to their friend, David McAdam. Struck down in his prime by cancer, this group of David's friends and co-workers has continued the tradition in memory and support of other cancer victims and their families. All proceeds raised are donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
