Last year, Think City held the first annual “Vancouver Stories” fundraiser event at Heritage Hall here in Vancouver. This event is a fundraiser for our now third annual Jane’s Walk event, in celebration of Jane Jacobs. This year’s event is coming up very soon, March 24th, also at Heritage Hall.
Vancouver Stories is a cocktail party and silent auction featuring Vancouver products, services and experiences, along with stories past and present as told by Vancouver notables. Last year, over 130 people turned out to listen to the tales told about our city (you can watch my embarrassingly amateurish video of Kim’s introduction from last year on YouTube). My bias is clear (I’m a Think City board member), but the silent auction had some pretty awesome items last year, and it looks even better this year.
Storytellers for 2010 include First Nations government advisor and Musqueam member Michele Guerin, recording artist Veda Hille, and architect and past Jane’s Walk host Annabel Vaughan.
The cost to attend this event is $60, and you can buy a ticket at the Think City website.
When: March 24th, 2009, 7-10 PM
Where: Heritage Hall, 3102 Main St., Vancouver
