NIGHT TO DREAM October 8. Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon was the $500,000 beneficiary when the charity-gala season gained further momentum with an event in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver chaired by Jennifer Dolnik whose day job is sales-and-events director for Toptable restaurants, yet another enterprise owned by the Aquilini family.

VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL To October 9. The 34th-annual running began with a party in the intimate Vancouver Club and ended, after screening some 250 movies that ended with local producer Aaron Gilbert’s I Saw The Light, with one in the cavernous Rocky Mountaineer station, and plans for even more of everything in 2016.
