Goans in Vancouver came together for the Spring Extravaganza Dinner Dance event hosted by the Goan Overseas Association (GOA) Vancouver at the Riverside banquet hall, Richmond, on May 25.

A special highlight of the night was the amazing performance by the talented Goan artiste, Mark Revlon, who captivated the gathering with his music.

The crowd was also treated to stellar performances by Victor Rodrigues from the popular band ‘Bigfoot’, and Vancouver local, Charles Johnson. DJ Paul kept the energy high with his fantastic sets.


Goan artistes, Mark Revlon from Goa and Victor Rodrigues from Toronto performed at the Spring Extravaganza Dinner Dance event hosted by the Goan Overseas Association Vancouver.

The two emcees, Andrew Nazareth and Lara Victoria, added splendour to the event with their savvy humour, seamlessly guiding the audience through the night’s programme.

The culinary experience was equally delightful, with the delicious food, especially the Sorpotel, being a treat to the palate.

The hall décor was top-notch, thanks to the creative talent of Anne DaSilva and her team of volunteers.  

GOA Vancouver President John Braganza described the Spring Extravaganza Dinner Dance event as an overwhelming success and expressed his gratitude to the guests and all those who help organise the event.

“This memorable evening was made possible by the tireless efforts of our GOA Vancouver core team and the many volunteers who worked passionately to bring this event to life,” said Braganza. 

“We are also grateful to our many guests who travelled from out of town to join us.  A very special thank you to members from our other GOA Association (Trevorlyn Menezes, George & Glenda Rodrigues) who came to the event and graced the occasion with their presence and lending us their warm support.” 

“Thank you to Owen Pereira, Nigel D'Souza, Trevorlyn Menezes, TD Bank, Transoft Solutions for their sponsorship. Thank you to Judith Braganza for supplying us with the hall décor.” 

Braganza also thanked the GOA Vancouver members who attended the event, adding that their presence and participation contributed to the success of the GOA Vancouver event.

The GOA Vancouver president also expressed his gratitude to the GOA Vancouver volunteers, Anne DaSilva, Ashney Rebello, Beatrice Pereira, Bina D'Souza, Crystal-Ann Lobo Fernandes, Coral-Ann Lobo, Crystal Menezes, Darryl Fernandes, Doris Amaral, Judith Braganza, Protus Fernandes, Palmira Braganza, Rita D'Souza, Stacy Fernandes, Savio Menezes, adding that their hard work and dedication were instrumental in making the event a success.
