North Shore Family Services is known for its outreach and for the many programs it runs to help families all across our community. They also provide especially important services over the holidays, including the North Shore Christmas Bureau campaign which helps ensure that no child goes without during this special season. Last week, the Fuller family graciously donated use of the Beach House restaurant in West Vancouver to hold an important fundraising evening. Guests paid a suggested $500 donation to attend and all of the funds raised go to support the Christmas Bureau program. Big thanks to committee members Karen Bruk, Charlene Dalton, Marie Genest, Susan Green, Coryn Hemsley, Carlota Lee, Susan MacDonald, Janice O’Sullivan, Cindy Pasco, Monica Soprovich, Lisa Stout, Coleen Weir and Christy Young.
