Vancouver Leo Awards 2008 at Westin Bayshore

May 24, 2008

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.


It's a happy tenth anniversary wish this week for the North Shore's own Walter Daroshin and business partner Sonny Wong who, for more than a decade now, have dedicated their time and efforts into celebrating the best in BC film and television. The 2008 Leo Awards, held last weekend at the Westin Bayshore, simply wouldn't exist without these two men. Local actors, directors, writers and more have had lots to celebrate since as they are honoured by their peers in this annual Oscar-style award ceremony which helps bring a little Hollywood glamour, and a lot of deserved recognition, to our no-so-little corner of the world. Congrats to all.

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.
