ANGELS dwell among us. And if you don’t want to take my word for it, just ask Vancouver’s most famous glamour gal – Jacqui Cohen. Her parties have been the talk of the town for 10 years now, so this year there was a lot to celebrate. The Face the World Foundation and its patron “angels” have raised more than $2 million dollars over the past decade thanks to the generosity of the jet-set crowd. And while the outfits and antics are a constant source of water-cooler gossip, there’s no mistaking all the good work that results from evenings like these. A big thanks to everyone, including our own North Shore gang below, for all of their givings.

Indra Sangha wins this year’s award for best outfit. Low cut and lovely, no wonder her man, Georgia Pacific’s Brian Ashton, is smiling.
He’s the Keg, Hy’s and Gothams all rolled into one. David Aisenstat and friend Corinna Fields have a great future together.
