Vancouver hosted the 2nd celebration for Water fundraiser. The event was held at the beautiful Aveda Institute & Academy in the heart of historic Gastown, Vancouver. Festivities kicked off at 8:30pm with the cool DJ stylings of Zac Santiago, and a wine and beer tasting.
A big thank you to our sponsors from Haywire, Bartier Bros. and Bartier & Scholefield Wineries for their amazing selection of wine for the evening, which paired beautifully with the savory delights from Vancouver’s famous Vij’s restaurant. This year we had an amazing selection of silent auction items for guests to ‘donate to win’ raffle, and our live auction was a great hit.
The Montreal Getaway, the Okanagan Getaway and MRI were the hot tickets items for the night, seeing us raise just over $5000 for clean water programs with WaterCan! Our local celebrity hosts, Nisha and Sharad Khare did a phenomenal job helping us raise money and spirits as the evening progressed towards it grand finale, our fashion show! Models wore designs from Jacqueline Conoir and Kim Cathers (of Project Runway fame) that had been kindly donated for our cause. What a great night!
