“We are pleased to recognize these exceptional organizations and individuals,” said Jack Wong, Real Estate Foundation CEO. “They stand out as models for how we can develop more responsibly—and, even more fundamentally, how we can plan our communities in ways that meet the needs of people and the environment we all share.”

In introducing the finalists and the awards, event chair, Kelly Lerigny, noted, “The projects we recognize are truly outstanding. They represent the accomplishments of people in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. As leaders in our province, they have put their dreams and ideas into action to solve environmental problems; to address social issues; to revitalize local economies; and to plan livable, healthy communities. We all benefit from their example.”

Over 280 people joined the celebration at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on Thursday evening, and a fair number continued to share conversation–and dance–at the afterparty. James Intveld and his band played to an appreciative crowd at the Rooftop Lounge.
