Crystal carson vancouverThe West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation held its signature gala event last week. A Passport to Spain was the theme as guests mixed and mingled among the books enjoying tapas, live entertainment, fabulous food and fashions. One of the main highlights included a live Flamenco performance by dancers from the Karen Pitkethly Flamenco group. Overall, the event raised close to $82,000 which will go to support the many programs and services at the library. Congrats to all involved.

05 – Guess who’s coming to dinner? Former West Vancouver mayor Ron Wood, left, and committee member Jo-Anne Wood, put in the winning bid for a dinner with friends at current mayor Mike Smith’s house.

06 – Ole! Flashy and fabulous, the members of the Karen Pitkethly Flamenco group wowed everyone with some very authentic moves.
