The 11th Annual North Shore Rotary Food and Wine Festival took place last week at Park Royal North in West Vancouver. This local event, which featured favourite restaurants paired with BC wine distributors, is always a hit as it gives guests a chance to sup and sample from some of the best local offerings. Live music, displays, entertainment and lots of socializing helped round out the night which helped raise funds for the North Shore Youth Safe House and North Shore Schizophrenic Society.
