We had the privilege to be commissioned to cover the 2016 De Beers Time to Shine Gala held at the magnificent Fairmont Pacific Rim and organized by the VGH/UBC Hospital Foundation. The event absolutely came as advertised. It was indeed a magical evening of delicious food, fun and excitement. After a very successful inaugural event, this was the second year of the wonderful first Asia Pacific Gala of its kind for the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. Well done to the gala committee, volunteers and donors! Together, they were able to raise over $1.7 million dollars, which would be put towards new hybrid operating rooms at the hospital!
