In celebration of our one year anniversary (can you believe it?), please join Friends & Company and 1181 Lounge for a festive evening of good times and holiday cheer, in support of the anti-bullying and teen suicide prevention work of Out in Schools!
The event will be hosted by our founding sponsor. Please join us at the Affinity Auto showroom, located in the heart of Vancouver's luxury vehicle dealership neighbourhood. Check out a Ferrari or a Porsche, savour a holiday cocktail and canape, catch up with old friends, or make new ones, all while supporting a great cause! We hope you will join us!

On behalf of Out in Schools, we would like to thank you for your support. Thank you to everyone who attended any of our eleven sold out events in 2012. Together, we have raised almost $20,000 for Out in Schools, money that directly enables Out in Schools facilitators to reach students all over BC. On top of this, our corporate sponsors and community partners gave an additional $30,000 to Out in Schools at Friends & Company events throughout the year. All of this is undeniable proof that together, we can make a difference for young LGBTQ people in our communities. Thank you.
We are thrilled to announce that our networking luncheons will resume with our New Year Luncheon, to be held in January. Stay tuned for details on that and other exciting events in 2013!
* We should mention, the number of complimentary beverages served per guest will be the subject to the supply of sponsored alcohol (of which there will be lots) and to the bartenders' discretion.
On a serious note: Friends & Company and our sponsors remind you to please drink responsibly and plan a safe ride home. Please don't drink and drive. Thank you.
