It was truly “Brilliant”! This was the title of The St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation’s special sold-out gala that featured an evening dedicated to “A Show of Love for Mental Health and People Living with HIV/AIDS”. It was one of the most colourful and well-coordinated shows ever seen in Vancouver. With over 900 people in attendance, and a cast featuring dozens of models, makeup artists, hair stylists, dancers and performers, guests were treated to the “One Hundred Years of Fashion” extravaganza show. Live auction items included trips, artwork and luxury items – the most spectacular of which will be a dinner for friends cooked in your home by the Vancouver Fire Fighters.
