South Burnaby Neighbourhood House hosts Diamond Ball
The South Burnaby Neighbourhood House hosted a successful evening, with a sold-out crowd of 250 people, at this year’s Diamond Ball. The event was held at the Firefighters Club, and a generous $20,000 was raised for the Neighbourhood House’s programs and services. Marilyn Monroe, Tina Turner, Cher and Madonna mingled with the local Burnaby business community, courtesy of Bonnie Kilroe, who was responsible for the Cabaret-themed entertainment. The dance music was supplied by the band Rainshadow.
A beautiful diamond set donated by Trio Diamond and Gold was won by Mike Prodanovic from Manulife Securities.
Scotiabank provided plenty of volunteers and $5,000 in sponsorship.
Additional sponsors included: Investors Group, Top Quality Heating and Cooling, Firefighters charitable association, Sweet Beginnings, Western Brewery, Firefighters Club, Allegra Print and Imaging, Burnaby Board of Trade, Burnaby NewsLeader, and Skoah.
