Bulletin from the SFC Chair

On November 16th, 2013 SI Vancouver and past SFC Chair Cora Salvador hosted a Gala at the Floral Hall, Van Dusen Gardens in Vancouver. The Floral Hall is a lovely old building full of character and was a terrific venue for the event. SI Vancouver’s members and some of their spouses came early and spent the day transforming the large room into a glittery wonderland of gold and white and pearls. The music was lovely and the tables sparkled with flowers and pearls, the food was delicious and the evening was enjoyed by all.

The lovely program contained a message from Premier Christy Clark.

Present were Senator Mobina Jaffer, SIA Program Chair Sharon Fisher, SI WCR Governor Dana Martin, past SFC Chair Cora Salvador and Ed Salvador, SI Vancouver President Ching, Miss Grace Chan, Mezzo Soprano accompanied by Leona Griffin pianist, RBC Investment councillors Warwick Holland and Lisa Holland, SFC Grants for Women award winner (2011) Raven Bowen, Alex and I along with about 70 other guests. Master of ceremonies Karen Blunderfield did a great job and kept things lively and entertaining.
