Renewal of the Jewel - Vancouver Stanley Park Gala to Restore the Trees

Feb 8, 2007

By Catherine Barr


Vancouver's money makers and shakers came out in force last week for the "Renewal of the Jewel" gala. Held last Thursday at the Stanley Park Pavillion, the event was spearheaded by Daniel Frankel, President and CEO of Daniel Hospitality Group, and Allan De Genova, Commissioner of the Board of Parks and Recreation. Over $140,000 was raised which will go towards the park's ongoing clean-up and restoration project.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd, , and

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.
