A huge thank you to all those who participated as our non-profit partners, volunteers, goods and service donors, and the very generous guests at Whistler Cornucopia Coat Check and Silent Auction this year, helping the Rotary Club of Whistler raise funds for youth support and youth-in-crisis programs in Whistler. Through the course of the 10-day event, we grossed approximately $27,000, which will be distributed for those organizations supporting youth-in-need programs.
Thank you to our partner organizations, Whistler Community Services Society, Zero Ceiling, The Whistler Writer’s Society and the Whistler Millennium Rotary Club/Interactor Club for taking on coat-check duties some nights.
Thank you to all the local businesses, artists and individuals who so generously donated goods and services for the silent auction. Thank you to Tourism Whistler and Watermark Communications Inc. for allowing our partnership of non-profit organizations to raise funds for these critical programs.
Thank you as well to the members and friends of the Rotary Club of Whistler who expended many hours managing and staffing the coat check and putting on the fantastic silent auction, and a big thank you to all the attendees of this year’s Cornucopia for filling our donation jars with those $5, $10. $20 and $100 bills.
See you next year when we do it all over again.
