Tyee Builders: Want a pair of tickets to the 2014 Land Awards, MC'd by David Beers?

For the second year in a row, The Tyee's own David Beers is MC'ing the Real Estate Foundation of BC's Land Awards, and we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky Builder.

The Land Awards celebrate sustainable land use in British Columbia by spotlighting and rewarding those initiatives that demonstrate leadership, innovation, and collaboration. These awards honour change-makers in B.C., people who lead the charge in creating more resilient, healthy communities and natural environments.

This year's event features a keynote speech by the anchor of CBC's the National Peter Mansbridge, and an after-party lounge. The pair of tickets is valued at $472.

Where: Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, Vancouver
When: Friday October 17, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
