Italian Heritage Month has begun and is being featured in this week’s Westender. The other day I had the opportunity to have lunch with the lovely editor, Martha Perkins and her charming husband Jean-Edouard at L’Artista… and an Italian heart throb by the name of Antonio Cupo. Ever the gentleman, he drove me back to work afterwards (and I wondered how much people around the world would pay to be me!). Antonio shall be receiving an award at the BC Italian Business Excellence Awards tonight (June 21, 2012). He and his sister Carmelina Cupo shall be honored jointly with the ‘Young Enterpreneur Award.’

Thank you to The Express for posting some footage from the 2012 Leo Awards. See nominee Ali Liebert shine in her ‘sea foam’ dress. Though Ali didn’t win her award (Best Supporting Actress in a Dramatic Series for ‘Bomb Girls),’ she accepted an award on behalf of her very lovely and very talented co-star, Meg Tilly. Meg won Best Lead performance in a Dramatic Series for Bomb Girls. Click on photo below to see some Leo Awards 2012 action!

Project Limelight’s Wonderland was a huge success and had packed houses for both shows! The audience had a fantastic time and laughter abounded. The children put on a fantastic performance and there wasn’t a dull moment in the entire show. Here is a sample featuring Tweedledee, Tweedledum, the Carpenter and the Walrus.

We’d also like to thank our celebrity guests, Mr. Young stars Brendan Meyer and Gig Morton for coming out to support Project Limelight! I had the honour of sitting with the lovely Meyer family and I can say that Brendan was laughing the entire time.
