Don’t miss A Very Gatsby Affair at Vancouver’s opulent Sutton Place Hotel on October 14, 2017 – an unforgettable evening of Gatsby-inspired elegance amidst the energy and decadence of the Roaring ‘20s.

This Gatsby inspired evening will include live music and dance performances, a luxury silent auction, complimentary cocktail or champagne, decadent hors d’oeuvres and so much more...

Of course, as much as we love a good party, the real reason we’re hosting this affair is to raise funds for the many support programs and outreach services we offer to people struggling with eating disorders.
