Karim Virani and West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Dinner

June 20, 21, 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 West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce's 2007 President's Dinner and Business Excellence Awards was held last week at the Capilano Golf and Country Club. Newly elected board members were introduced before guests enjoyed a lavish buffet dinner. Afterwards, the business awards were handed out to Y. Franks Appliances, as business of the year, and Wendy and Robert Harrington, of West Van Florist, were awarded the Citizen(s) of the Year honour.

Also last week, North Shore realtor Karim Virani announced his newest business at the Pacific Pallisades Hotel. Importing luxury goods and items ranging from jets to art and cars, he and his staff entertained exhibitors and invited guests at a special launch event.

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.
