Capilano Elementary Veagas 80s Night

Apr 26, 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 was a really big show this past weekend as Capilano Elementary's second annual PAC (Parents Advisory Committee) spring fundraiser took place. Based on an 80's Vegas theme - Club Tropiacana at Capilano saw parents bring out their best Cyndi Lauper / Madonna era garb to help raise money for the school. Excellent silent auction items, fun gambling tables and Elvis at the Chapel of Love highlighted an evening of fun. The scool is, in fact, the only North Vancouver elementary school just newly designated as an IB starting school. Congrats.

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.
