At TD Waterhouse “Night of New Beginnings” fundraiser, Vancouver glitterati united for Covenant House
The deliciously gossipy Elaine Lui of LaineyGossip fame, and eTalk reporter, served as emcee of the 6th annual TD Waterhouse “Night of New Beginnings” fundraiser gala benefitting Covenant House Vancouver on Thursday November 25. This annual event was held at the regal and luxurious Birks flagship shop. The gala kicked off the “30 Days for 30 nights” campaign, which aims to raise enough funds to cover operations at the 54 bed crisis shelter during its busiest and most needy time of the month, December.
This posh event featured several auctions with drool-worthy prizes and delightful entertainment by renowned jazz vocalist Denzal Sinclaire and Dawn Chubai, star of Breakfast Television. There was even a contortionist, Alyssa Elson, and a caricaturist, Mark Siermaczeski, of Cruelty-Free Cartoons. An absolutely stunning necklace donated by Birks was the raffle draw grand prize. Guests were treated to delicious appies and cocktails and mingled about in their best despite the unseasonably cold weather. Nary a smutty celebrity was sighted but the event raised $109,550. Truly a magical night for those dedicated to improving the lives of homeless youth in Vancouver.
