We are so glad to be invited to photograph a school event, where boys and their moms got together for a fun night. The event organizers did a fantastic job— delicious food including a chocolate fountain, a portable planetarium provided by the H.R McMillan Space Centre, photo booth with us, and followed by an exciting visit from a police car and a fire truck!
We can expect a sea of blue and yellow on the streets of Vancouver city on Sunday as the Sun Run participants are planning to honour the victims of Boston Marathon bombing.
You’d understand people would withdraw from a similar marathon event after Boston’s tragedy on Monday. The blasts took the life of a restaurant owner, an 8-year-old boy and a young Chinese international student, and injured more than 140 people.
But that’s not Vancouverites.
Instead, there’s been a surge in registration for the Sun Run. The number of people who registered on Monday doubled from last year; Tuesday, that number spiked again, with 965 new participants signing up.
Online registration was closed on Tuesday, but if you are still interested in taking part of this great event, go sign up in person at BC Place this afternoon (4pm, Thursday). The registration fee goes up to $60 but $10 out of it will be donated to the Boston bombing victims through One Fund Boston.
We were honoured to take part in the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Major Donor event. It was held on Wednesday, Mar 21, 2012 at the Tap Restaurant in South Surrey. Chef Alistair Veen, together with PAH’s Karen Hammond and her colleagues, created a fun way to thank the guests for their tremendous support and generosity over the years. The event featured delicious food and wines, and a fun part where Alistair invited three volunteers to walk into the kitchen and help prepare the food for everyone.
It was a great success and we had a wonderful time photographing it. To check out the amazing work Peace Arch Hospital is doing to help everyone in the community get better health and care and see what you could do to help, please visit http://www.peacearchhospital.com/
