It has been a while since our last luncheon because we know how busy people are with travel and other activities during the summer months, so we are especially pleased to invite you to our September luncheon on Friday, September 21, 2012. The venue will be the much-anticipated new Yaletown hotspot, La Pentola della Quercia. Chef-duo Adam Pegg and Lucais Syme of Vancouver's award-winning West Side restaurant, La Quercia, have joined forces with Cento Notti creator, Peter Girges, and OPUS Hotel, to deliver artfully crafted Northern Italian cuisine. Lunch is $25 (plus HST and ticket processing fee) per person with net proceeds going to the anti-bullying and teen suicide prevention work of Out in Schools. This luncheon will mark our tenth event, following our first nine sold out events, so be sure to get your tickets early.

Susan HallWe are thrilled to welcome TD Canada Trust Vice President, Susan Hall, as our guest speaker. Susan will introduce us to TD and, in particular, to their wealth management services. She will also bring us up to date on TD's corporate responsibility strategy, with a focus on the exciting initiatives that TD is undertaking in the LGBTQ community. It's well known that TD has long been a leader in the corporate community as a great supporter of workplace diversity and LGBTQ causes as a whole, so we are especially looking forward to hearing Susan's remarks! Be sure to get your tickets before they sell out!.
