The West Vancouver Community Foundation held a special reception last week to honour supporters and friends of the charitable organization. The Friends of the Foundation Appreciation reception was held at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club. Community leaders and invited guests got a chance to mix and mingle and to hear about the new North Shore Search and Rescue fund which will help with items like funding and equipment in the future. There was also some surprise entertainment by the Pals Chorus (Performning Arts Lodge) seniors choir who hand everyone clapping along to everything from Footloose to Lady Gaga. Congrats to all involved.
