Swinging food fair tonight
A food fair organized for the tonight's Big Band Swing dance at the conference centre will not just entice the taste buds, but raise money for a worthy cause, too.
Nesters Market is donating the proceeds from the sale of its "Taste of Nesters" veggie burgers, its popular Thai salad and other goodies to the Whistler Centre for Business and the Arts.
But ice cream fans will want to check out the sundae-making booth, staffed by the Whistler Winterhawks girls midget hockey team. Put what you like on your sundae, proceeds also go to the Centre for Business and the Arts.
As well as the food fair, virtual reality games in skiing, snowboarding and a mystery sport will pit players against a local skiing hero's best time.
A raffle and live auction includes such eye-popping prizes as a heli-skiing trip for two, double VIP ducats to Whistler World Cup '97, and a World Cup jacket... 'cause baby, it's co-old outside.
