Every holiday season, St. Paul’s Hospital drapes its façade in an electric blanket of multicoloured stars. This spectacular display is part of the Lights of Hope campaign, an initiative that raises funds to support better patient care, capital projects, equipment needs and research. With the target set at $3 million this year, St. Paul’s is challenging the community to help them reach their goal.Hudson’s Bay has answered the call in style by hosting a festive evening tonight made up of holiday fashion, gifting and entertaining inspiration. Fashion guru Brad Goreski (co-host of the Fashion Police), chef David Hawksworth, and Vancouver magazine’s 2015 Bartender of the Year, Lauren Mote, will all be in attendance to share a bit of holiday spirit while sharing their expertise with the crowd.Those keen to cross off their holiday shopping list will save an extra 15% off almost everything in store while 10% of the evening’s sales will be donated to the Lights of Hope campaign via the HBC Foundation’s Strength in Stripes program.November 26 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.Hudson’s Bay, 674 Granville St.604-681-6211Thebay.comItinerary:Chef David Hawksworth at 6:30 p.m. on the 5th floor Brad Goreski at 7:15 p.m. on the 2nd floor Lauren Mote at 8:00 p.m. on the 5th floor
