What do you get when you combine a local Oscars Party with a community fundraiser? Here in Coquitlam, in the Tri-Cities area near Vancouver, there’s an annual Oscars Party fundraiser that turns watching the Oscars into an event.
For the third year running, the Tri-Cities Oscar Night will take place today (Feb. 24/13) at 4 PM,at the Coquitlam City Hall Council Chambers. Coquitlam Counsellor Selina Robinson, Port Moody Councillor Diana Dilworth and event planner Polly Krier will host the event. Funds raised will support the Coquitlam Foundation, Port Coquitlam Foundation and Port Moody Foundation.
This event is an example of the creative and artistic community events that are regular fare in this part of the Lower Mainland. If you’re looking for a place to live near Vancouver that has great community spirit, easy access to downtown (think SkyTrain & Westcoast Express), more affordable housing options and a wide variety of cultural and sporting activities, you should be checking out the Tri-Cities area of Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam.
