The Annual Celebrity Dim Sum is heading into its seventh year. The Celebrity Dim Sum is a signature fundraising event for AIDS Vancouver, attracting high-level donors as well as a variety of Vancouver celebrities.
Every year this event proves to be a delectable Dim Sum brunch to remember, with all proceeds going towards AIDS Vancouver’s Community Outreach Program: providing outreach HIV information, education and support to people who are a high risk of contracting HIV.
The most significant appeal of the Celebrity Dim Sum is the opportunity to meet and network with high profile celebrities with direct ties to Vancouver. Fred Lee, Vanhattan's Man About Town and regular contributor to The CBC, The Province and Vancouver Courier Newspaper co-hosts again this year with Sophie Lui from Global TV News. Joining them and pushing our Dim Sum carts are CTV Morning Live's Ann Luu, ShawTV's hostess Fiona Forbes, CTV News Anchor Mi-Jung Lee, Kyle Donaldson and Michel McDermott from Breakfast Television/City TV, OMNI News Anchor Bowen Zhang, CBC's Rick Cluff and Cecilia Walters, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of 30 Day Adventures Marc Smith, Joytv’s and CarmenTV’s Carmen Ruiz y Laza, Leah Bolton and Dean Atwal from JoytvNEWS, Mary Zilba, Recording Artist and formerly of the Real Housewives of Vancouver, Barb Snelgrove, Radio Host @QueerFMVan, Reporter OUTLooktv/OUTtv, President of megamouthmedia, Ryan Steele, well-known Vancouver bartender, stand-up comic and Amazing Race Canada contestant, and His Worship, Mayor Gregor Robertson.
Guests will be treated to the hugely popular Annual Chicken Feet Eating Contest, and live and silent auctions will round out the afternoon's festivities.
