They Got Their Art On For Spencer

West End - Coal Harbour MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert held his annual fundraiser "Get Your Art On" at PAL Studio Theatre, and the local arts community, as well as NDP and Green party supporters, turned out in support. The Reid Jamison Band played, Candy Cadillac provided a risqué moment with a burlesque routine, and comedian David C. Jones was Emcee. (Dianne Maguire Photos)
