Centennial Arena filled with 500 people for the 22nd annual Partners in Caring Gala last weekend, which celebrated the completion of four priority projects in as many years at Peace Arch Hospital.

The April 30 event was held in benefit of Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, and raised more than $130,000.

Guests enjoyed live music, dinner and auctions, with the top live auction item – a dinner with former Canuck Trevor Linden – going for $18,000.
