Event description

Description

Please join the Friends of the Vancouver City Archives at the Hugh Pickett Gala

silent auction :: live music :: bubbly & hors d’oeuvres :: illustrated presentations


Proceeds from the limited tickets available for $50 will go directly towards the processing and digitization of Hugh Pickett’s records - recently donated to the City of Vancouver Archives by Gordon Boyd, Hugh’s life partner. Additional funds will be raised at the gala through the auctioning of a colourful collection of silent auction items from entertainment memorabilia to tours and show tickets, with some exciting items up for bid from Hugh Pickett’s very own collection as well as from the Orpheum Theatre’s basement courtesy of the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Expect an evening of entertainment emceed by Howard Blank, co-hosted by Bill Allman of Famous Artists, live music by Bryant Olender, former accompanist and band leader for Michael Bublé, and augmented by illustrated presentations of Hugh’s life and career.

Hosted by the Friends of the Vancouver City Archives with generous support from Famous Artists.

Dress cool - as Hugh would say “tuxedos are for waiters.”
