SUSAN SNOW Memorial Reception: A Remarkable Turn-out

OVER 100 People Gathered To Celebrate SFD’s ‘Queen of the Trophies’

A great number of dance-lovers gathered on May 11, 2019 at the Surrey Arts Centre to remember and celebrate the life of long time volunteer Susan Snow

Saturday, May 11th was not only the day dancers got down with the No Borders Group Dance Challenge and an evening of celebrating the winners – but it was also the evening to recognize the tremendous contribution of volunteer-extraordinaire Susan Snow to the Surrey Festival of Dance.

To commemorate her remarkable achievement as the ‘Queen of the Trophies’, the SFD organized a memorial tribute reception held from 6:15 -7:30pm in the reception area of the Surrey Arts Centre. A delectable array of delicious edibles accompanied by their exceptional service of a full compliment of staff were donated by the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel for a capacity crowd estimated at 150.
