Town Talk: Canucks Autism Network readies for Rogers Arena gala

REVEALING REVEAL: The Canucks Autism Network’s eponymous team endured a baleful season. But the organization itself anticipates quite the opposite when its Reveal gala occupies Rogers Arena on May 6. Team-owning family member Clara Aquilini and Christi Yassin will co-chair what is billed as “an Evening in Venice.” That won’t involve melting the rink and having 544 attendees float between 68 tables in gondolas. There will be ice, though, in raffle prizes of $38,800 diamond-chandelier earrings and an $11,500, 72-diamond bracelet donated by Britton Diamonds. The bijoux appeared during a reception at Nader and Mana Mobargha’s Moissonnier store where gala committee member Saeedeh Salem and husband Sean characteristically donated plenty of wine from their La Stella/Le Vieux Pin operation.

In Canadian Film Week’s Menorca, Tammy Gillis is a soccer mom “who won’t settle for domestic banality when casual sex is much more fun.”

JUST DO IT: Twice this week city actress Tammy Gillis got to see herself starring in the feature film Menorca. Screening at Vancity Theatre as part of Canadian Film Week, it pictures Gillis as “a rebellious soccer mom … who won’t settle for domestic banality when casual sex is much more fun.” Viewers may or may not choose to emulate that role. Given our months of dreary wetness, though, several likely contacted their travel agents regarding the film’s title island off Spain’s Mediterranean coast.

ON HIS WAY: In 1978, Chris Gallagher photographed red-suited, white-bearded pal Allan Harvey as Santa Claus on holiday.

Delighted to see Gallagher’s works on Autoform’s showroom walls to April 27, co-principal Mike Wood might be even happier to snag the artist’s 1957 Austin Healey 100-6 roadster for its sales floor.
