Supporting the Whistler Children’s Centre, this event is aimed at raising funds AND getting Moms and Sons out having fun in the community! Monies raised will go directly towards enabling the Centre to upgrade the facility, the programs and the overall quality of care to our community’s children. This event draws over 300 participants for an app based scavenger hunt and après party in Whistler Village. Event ticket sales, carnival style games and a silent auction table will be the main fundraising activities for The Hunt.
This Whistler Children’s Centre fundraising event will involve Mom (or significant adult female – aunt, grandma, friend of the family, etc.) and son teams taking part in a mobile app based scavenger hunt around Whistler Village. The scavenger hunt will require teams to check in (via GPS), take photos and answer questions at locations around the village. Teams are encouraged to dress up (hunt theme, team colours, or anything goes)!
Pumpkin Drop- Don’t know what to do with those leftover jack-o-lanterns from Halloween? Head over to the fifth annual Pumpkin Drop at Whistler Fire Hall 3 in Spring Creek, in support of the Whistler Children’s Centre. Families get the chance to climb up three stories and drop their pumpkin out a window. Firefighters will be on hand to scoop up the smashed pumpkins, where they will be deposited into a compost truck onsite. There will be warm beverages, baked goods and BBQ treats for sale.
