Celebrity Pamela Anderson appears at YVR for Kids
Tens of thousands of dollars was raised Thursday night at the 22nd annual YVR for Kids gala dinner, which drew hundreds of people who played golf, purchased silent and live auction items, and donated money earmarked for Canuck Place children's hospice and other children's charities.
Making a special appearance at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond was television celebrity, actress and model Pamela Anderson, a native of Ladysmith, B.C., who was asked by YVR for Kids chair Cheryl Hendrickson to attend.
"I've done a lot of charity work all over the world, and I always was looking for something to do at home, and for kids, especially since I've had kids. I use the Airport Butler service at YVR and they've always been good to me, and (Cheryl Hendrickson) asked me 'Would you consider coming to our event, it supports Canuck Place,'" Anderson told The Richmond Review in an exclusive interview at the event.
"I think it's the hardest thing anyone could face, is to have a child...pass away before you. They need all the support they can get."
