18 Dec A Gentleman’s Christmas
This year I had the honor of hosting The Annual Gentleman’s Christmas. On December the 14th, forty of Vancouver’s finest came together at House X Guest to celebrate Christmas together. It was a night filled with great conversation, catching up with old friends and coming together to raise money for The Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau.
The Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau is a non for profit organization that provides food and gifts on Christmas day for underprivileged families that live in the Lower Mainland. This year the LMCB raised over one hundred thousand dollars. The Annual Gentlemen’s Christmas party raised eight hundred dollars, and we were lucky enough to have Chris Bayliss, the CEO of the LMCB to come by and make a speech and collect our donation. A special thanks to Travis Goeres, Manager and bad ass Barber at JD’s Barbershop for raising over $120, Tristan Casey for photographing the event and Justin Devlin and Matty Schmidt of House X Guest for providing complimentary appetizers and drink specials for the night.
This Christmas I am truly grateful for the amazing friends and family I have. I am influenced by each one of them and am the Man I am today because of it. I cannot wait to see what 2013 has in store for us and I know together we are all going to make Vancouver a little brighter for a lot of people.
