Chef jean george VongerichtenGet out your datebooks and calendars, it’s time to plan your social schedule for the New Year. And while 2011 proved to be extra exciting, with red carpet galas and glamorous restaurant / wine events everywhere, here are a a few suggestions to pencil in for what promises to be a fabulous 2012. See you there!

2012 vancouver events

01 – Who could forget our own BC Lions bringing home the Grey Cup last November. Well, mark your calendars for November 25th and book your flight to Toronto because BC Lions CEO Dennis Skulsky, left, quarterback Travis Lulay and coach/GM Wally Buono are hoping to make a return trip in 2012 to the historic 100th Grey Cup celebration.

02 – I remember being there for the very first one, and this year, on March 30th, Hollyburn Country Club will play host to the 10th anniversary A4K Boxing Gala which attracts notables like Canucks “O Canada” man Mark Donnelly, left, and Canucks hockey hero Dave Babych.

03 – Keep the first week of August open for the return of the Odlum Brown Van Open 2012 tennis tournament up at Hollyburn Country Club in West Vancouver. Sponsor / Odlum Brown’s Floyd Hill, who was also last year’s tournament chair, teamed up with PR Gals Sasha Evans, left, and Che Winters to make it all happen.

04 – Wine lovers will want to book time off between February 28 – March 4 for the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival. Whether its tickets to the tasting room or a private winemaker’s dinner, there’s lots to choose from. Last year, North Vancouver’s Jill Killeen and world-famous chef Jean George Vongerichten were part of the action at the Shangri-La hotel.

05 – It’s Vancouver’s Oscar night out, and walking the red carpet at the Leo Awards is always a thrill, especially with celebrities and stars like the amazing Amanda Tapping, who lives in West Vancouver, and her dynamic Sanctuary co-star Ryan Robbins. Keep your eyes open for a late May / early June final date.

06 – The Turning Point Recovery Society’s “Making Recovery a Reality” Gala will be back May 3. Last year’s event featured Married with Children actress / singer Katey Sagal, right, seen here with Turning Point Recovery Society’s executive director Brenda Plant.

07 – Last year, The BC Sports Hall of Fame Banquet of Champions inducted famous athletes like Roberto Luongo, Trevor Linden, Tom Larscheid and Maelle Ricker. If you want to attend in 2012, make sure you have September 20th free on your schedule.
