A glitzy crowd joined stars including Rick 'Man in Motion' Hansen, Olympic gold medal winner Ashleigh McIvor and the Whitecaps Jay DeMerit last week at the Vancouver Aquarium for its annual 'Night at the Aquarium' fundraising gala. This year a whopping $400,000 was raised for the non-profit society, with one hundred per cent of the event's proceeds going to support the Aquarium's conservation, research, and education programs.
Wineries from BC and beyond kept the party going and sustainable Ocean Wise bites were on offer from top Vancouver restaurants including chef Frank Pabst of Blue Water Café, chef Ned Bell from YEW and there was even a rare appearance from the Fish Counter's Robert Clark who got back into his chef whites for the night to help raise money for the cause. Dan Poh Photography was on hand to capture the action.
