Chris_Gailus.jpgThe Golden Heart award is Variety – The Children’s Charity’s “most prestigious mark of distinction”. Every year, at this elegant gala affair, groups and individuals are honoured for their commitment to excellence and for their philanthropic contributions to British Columbians. This year, it was time to honour Global TV BC for over 50 years of service. From their first on-air broadcast on Oct 31, 1960 to their work with the Show of Hearts Telethon, they have become a household name and a leader in all they do. Here’s a toast to some of the many North Shore citizens who are part of this success story. Congrats to all involved.


01 – Global BC’s newest anchor man Chris Gailus is surrounded by beauty and brains as fellow co-workers/anchors Sophie Lui, left, Deb Hope, weather gal Kristi Gordon and Anne Drewa enjoy the gala festivities.

02 – Outgoing Premier Gordon Campbell is greeted at the reception by Variety Executive Director Barbara Hislop.

03 – West Vancouver’s Wendy Lisogar-Cocchia, seen here with daughter Connie and husband Sergio, is one of many speakers this evening. Wendy is also owner of Absolute Spa and the senior vice-chair of the Vancouver Board of Trade.

04 – At 92-years young, bandleader Dal Richards and wife Miriam are among the evening’s VIPs.

05 – Did you know that the lights on the Lions Gate Bridge are called “Gracie’s Pearls” after former Socred MLA Grace McCarthy? Seen here with husband Ray, she continues to give back via her CH.I.L.D. Foundation.

06 – Volunteering for over 20 years with Variety are two of the charity’s most elegant ladies; Barbara Stewart, left, and West Vancouver’s Arline McFarlane.

07 – Former North Shore newsman turned communications manager Michael Becker, seen here with sweetheart Tracy Forbes, now spends his days raising money with the United Way.

08 – They’re the main men behind this night’s award ceremonies. North Vancouver’s Brett Manlove, left, Vice President and GM of Global BC Broadcast Operations and Ian Haysom, News Director, take home the 24k gold flecked statue for a job very well done.
