Champagne and Caviar with Liberty Wine Merchants

Comments 84 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Champagne & CaviarLiberty Wine Merchants presents Champagne and Caviar July 8th at the Vancouver Rowing Club.

Champagne & Caviar will benefit amateur sport in BC as this is one of many events in a tasting series that also supports a local non-profit cause or organization.

Tickets for this event are available for $29.99 from all Liberty Wine Merchant stores and guests will enjoy (you guessed it) fine champagne and caviar overlooking Coal Harbour from the Stanley Park setting.

I have a pair of tickets to give away so if you would like to enter to win, please leave a comment listing your favourite evening activity in Vancouver. This could be anything from catching a sunset in English Bay or heading out on the town, to watching a movie or attending a bubbly fundraising event.

I will draw a winner at 9:00am June 30th.

Update The winner is Bonnie. Congratulations and have fun at the event!
Update Unfortunately I could not confirm the first winner’s attendance at the event so I have done a re-draw. The next winner is Helena.

    Riding our cruisers over to New Brighton park, picking up old-school ice cream bars and soda on the way from the corner store, and lying on the grass, watching the shore.

    Gorgeous summer evening, and not as crowded as some other spots around the city can get when the weather’s pleasant.
