      An absolutely phenomenal evening which over exceeded my expectations! We enjoyed 5 star gourmet orderves, wonderful wine and top notch cocktails. The DJ and the bands were entertaining us. The silent auction was fabulous, and I walked away with one heck of a prize which is going to come in very handy. :-) I've never been to the venue before, but found it charming and quaint. Nicely renovated, and the staff was great! All participating restaurants and all the volunteers that made this evening happen did a fantastic job!! This turned out to be a very successful fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Packed with people despite a Monday night. Thank you to all of you who turned up to support this worthy cause! It was a delightful evening.

      The parking lot was near empty but the venue was fully attended. I'm assuming that most took transit which was pretty awesome! The silent auction wasn't the greatest but the rest was nothing but good times.
