Jill krop crystal ballIt’s one of Vancouver’s most elegant black-tie affairs, and this year there was even more reason to celebrate. The 25th annual Crystal Ball gala, in support of BC Children’s Hospital, marked its’ anniversary year with a special plea to help support the development of a new BC Children’s Hospital. The ballroom at the Four Seasons Hotel was transformed into a silvery wintery wonderland as guests enjoyed a champagne reception and a four course meal. Live and silent auction items were bid on to raise funds, then guests were invited to visit the specially set-up ultra lounge where dessert and disco-dancing finished off the evening in style. Congrats to everyone involved.
