Business members, community leaders, and other supporters gathered Feb. 23 to celebrate and raise funds for the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House at its ninth annual Diamond Ball Gala. Some sponsors who made this event possible were the Burnaby NewsLeader, Intracorp Projects Ltd., Sweet Beginnings, Allegra Print and Imaging, Burnaby Board of Trade, Investors Group Financial Services Inc., Burnaby Firefighters’ Charitable Society, Skoah, HollyNorth Production Supplies, and Indian Arm Recreational Services Ltd. The Firefighters’ Club Banquet and Conference Centre hosted the Under Sea Fantasy evening while Scotiabank matched funds raised through the annual diamond draw, and the silent and live auctions.
This year, Trio Diamond & Gold Jewellery generously donated a breathtaking three-piece Tahitian pearl-and-diamond pendant with a chain and matching Tahitian pearl drop earrings valued at over $3,562. Andrew Masse from the Business Development Bank of Canada was the lucky winner of this year’s diamond set.
