Celebs for Kids Gala Featuring Grant Fuhr

Aug 13, 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.


When the Karim Chandani family set out to raise awareness, and support, for Lupus and Arthritis - they set out to move mountains. And after an unforgettable, star-studded, three-day extravaganza - it looks like they just may have changed the landscape after all. Sports celebrities, actors, musicians and VIP guests all took part in the event which started Wednesday with a private party at West Vancouver's Steamworks. Thursday night was a fashion show and celebrity poker tournament at the Sutton Place hotel featuring a live performance by Barney Bentall and more. And - for those still swinging on day three - Grant Fuhr hosting guests at Mayfair Lakes for a golf tournament that ended in a VIP party at the River Rock in Richmond complete with a special performance by artist/entertainer Michael Israel. Congrats to all involved.
