The Gingerbread Project
The Holiday season is here and this is a great time of year to get involved in a great cause.
In Support of the Pemberton Food Bank
The Pemberton Valley Lodge is pleased to support the Gingerbread Project. The Gingerbread Project is a benefit and fundraiser for the Pemberton Food Bank. Local area businesses are asked to build a Gingerbread House or Gingerbread Village. The masterpieces will go on display at the Pemberton Valley Lodge from December 10 to 20. Completed Gingerbread Houses or Villages should be brought to the Pemberton Valley Lodge by Friday December 9.
Gingerbread - A Christmas Tradition
Building gingerbread houses at Christmas is an old custom. It became popular after the Grimm Brothers retold the tale of Hansel and Gretel in the 19th century. In Sweden, building and displaying a small gingerbread house is a traditional part of Christmas for many families. Early German settlers brought the 'lebkuchenhaeusle' gingerbread house tradition to North America. Have fun building a house or even an entire Village! The children will love looking at the display.
You are invited to come to the Pemberton Valley Lodge and bid on the houses and also vote on best display. The winning company will win tickets to a Vancouver Canucks game a night in Vancouver. Scotia bank will match all cash funds raised.
If you are visiting the display, please bring in non-perishable food items for the food bank.
The Pemberton Food Bank is run by Sea to Sky Community Services. The food bank is a vital lifeline to the community and serves Pemberton and the surrounding the communities. Over 1300 people in have been helped by the Pemberton Foodbank in the past 6 months. 503 of those helped were children. Support this great cause and help a family in need this holiday season.
