The weather this year might have had you thinking summer would never arrive – but that couldn’t be further from the truth at Yaletown’s Goldfish Pacific Kitchen.  The venue is again hosting their annual Summer Splash event, on Wed, June 22, 2011 from 7 to 9:30pm. This summer beach fashion and cocktail event will benefit the Vancouver Native Health Society (VNHS), a non-profit organization doing much needed work in the Downtown Eastside.

This is one of my favourite events of the year, see my coverage of last years event.

Artist, Tiko Kerr, has donated a canvas painting valued at $6,500 for the event’s live auction; as well, attendees can bid on a coveted chance to dine one-on-one with Mr. and Mrs. Kanke to find out what it is that makes them some of the most successful business owners in Vancouver’s restaurant scene.

Summer Splash features all the necessary trappings for a great summer evening – light refreshments in the form of wine, beer and martinis, delectable appetizers prepared by Executive Chef Curtis Webb of Goldfish Pacific Kitchen, DJ Leanne, professional salsa performances, and the latest trends in swimwear from local designer Anna Kosturova.

“Summer Splash has made its mark on the Vancouver social calendar and it’s a great event that gets everyone talking,” explains Andrea Mestrovic, Goldfish Director of Marketing & Sales. “But we do this for one reason only – to raise funds for the Vancouver Native Health Society.  We hope to keep growing each year, raising the bar and the donations every time.”

Tickets are $75. For more information, please visit, or call 604-689-8318.
