On November 16th 2019 the community held a fundraising event to support the Big White Mountain Early Learning Centre.
The event was headlined by the Hip Replacements (now with a new name for 2020! - 'Straight from the Hip') who put on an amazing show with their magical mix of Tragically Hip classics.
In addition to the incredible sounds of the Hip Replacements there was some amazing food, drink and raffle prizes provided by local businesses The Globe, The Bullwheel and The Market. The event was hosted within the Happy Valley Day Lodge donated for the evening by Big White Ski Resort.
In addition to ticket sales we had a host of prize-winning opportunties including a grand prize helicopter tour of the Okanagan donated by Georg & Rhonda Schurian which helped to swell the fundraising efforts.
The evening was a tremendous success, raising over $11,000 for the Early Learning Centre!!!
We cannot thank all those who supported the event enough. It could not have been done without you.
The Early Learning Centre is a much needed resource for the community, making it possible for young families to spend more time on the mountain, and providing kids with a great learning and socialising environment within a special location.
