Zooming Zucchinis Support Sea to Sky Charities
Whistler, September 24, 2012
Get your race hats on and roll up those sleeves for the first annual Fairmont Zucchini 500 race at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. This Thanksgiving Sunday, hotel guests and Whistler locals are invited to stop by the croquet lawn to try their hand at building and racing their very own zucchini car for a chance to win a night stay at the hotel. Prizes for fastest and best decorated zucchinis will be awarded with gold, silver and bronze medals. Proceeds from this charity fundraising event will be donated to Fairmont’s Sea to Sky Charity Foundation that supports local charities throughout the corridor. Be sure to check out the rest of Fairmont’s Thanksgiving festivities and Turkey Sale Packages including Sunday Brunch, traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings and shotgun golf all weekend long.
About the Sea to Sky Foundation: For over 10 years, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler has partnered with charities in the local community including the district schools, WAG, the Whistler Arts Foundation, local sports teams and more and donated over $40,000 annually to these great causes. Help us continue to support our community by participating in this exciting new event.
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler invites all members of the community to come down and build their very own zucchini race car for the chance to compete and win a night stay at the hotel. A $10 entry fee will provide you all the tools necessary to build your car, with proceeds being donated to Fairmont’s Sea to Sky Charity Foundation.
