Vancouver, September 30, 2022 – Last night I had the pleasure of joining the The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada – West (ICCC West) in celebrating their 30th anniversary with ‘La Grande Festa’, a deluxe gala dinner along with their members, partners, and the public on September 29, 2022 at 6 PM at Coast Coal Harbour Vancouver Hotel, with partial proceeds going to benefit Variety – The Children’s Charity.
There were lots of sponsors and auction items, including ebco, Brian Jessel BMW and the Whitecaps.
