Thank You For Participating in the Pemberton Gingerbread Project!
Pemberton Valley Lodge Thanks YOU
The Pemberton Valley Lodge would like to thank the Pemberton community for being a part of a very successful 2013 Pemberton Gingerbread Project! With help from our Sponsors, Pemberton's Scotiabank branch and the Whistler Question, we raised $6,412.10. A big thank you goes out to Scotiabank who graciously matched community monetary donations. In addition to funds raised, we filled over 14 bins with food that will be donated to the Pemberton Food Bank.
Local Business Entered 30 Gingerbread Creations
From December 10th until the 20th you had the chance to come by the Lodge and check out the masterpieces, vote and bid on your favourite gingerbread house and donate. There were 30 gingerbread masterpieces entered into this year's event. The talent that resides in the Pemberton community keeps exceeding our expectations and this year the entries were absolutely amazing!
We know that you, who entered, spent hours upon hours creating your works of art and this event wouldn't have been as successful as it was without you and your masterpieces. The community had a chance to vote for their favourite gingerbread house and the much-deserved winner of the 2013 Gingerbread Project's People's Choice is the Stewardship Pemberton Society. This creation alone raised $340 for the Pemberton Food Bank. Along with this honour they won a night in Vancouver with tickets to a Vancouver Canucks game. A big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to you!
And Santa Visited, Too!
In addition, we would like to thank Santa for stopping by and hanging out with our children (we know he's very busy this time of year).We hope that those of you who bid on gingerbread houses (and won) are enjoying their magical presence. Without the continued support from the community this annual event wouldn't exist. It's fun, festive and helps us give back to Pemberton. We know you are already planning on what to build next year and we look forward to watching this event continue to give back and grow.
Happy holidays from the team at the Pemberton Valley Lodge!
