Pemberton celebrated with its annual Father Daughter Dance on Sunday (June 24) and the event (a fundraiser for the intermediate playground project at Signal Hill Elementary School) was a sold-out, stellar success!
We couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of many, many people. To the businesses and individuals who jumped on board with donations and time, our PAC executive and the parent volunteers, we are so very grateful! Your dedication to this event and the community is very much appreciated.
Dozens of local girls and their fathers enjoyed fabulous dinner and dessert, amazing raffle prizes, a jellybean count, 50/50 draw, photographs, hula hooping and dancing under the (mostly) clear sky.
As the organizing committee for this event, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to: Chris Wallace, Ryan Leitch and the team at Big Sky Golf and Country Club; Sheryl Frankland, Kirsten McLeod and Pemberton Valley Supermarket; Jamie Lee and AG Foods, Wayne Doucette and Avw-Telav; the Whistler Question, MC extraordinaire, Lindsay May; Toshi and Kaori Kawano and Sea to Sky Photography; Melissa Leitch; Leanne Hachey; Whistler Blackcomb; Whistler Golf Club; Canadian Tire (Squamish); Fairmont Chateau Whistler; Scandinave Spa; Rona (Pemberton); Pemberton Bike Co.; One Earth; Armchair Books; Lush Cosmetics; Small Potatoes Bizarre; Pemberton Frontier Pharmacy; Animal Barn; Cow’s; Funky Diva Hair; Adventures on Horseback; Usborne Books; Mount Currie Coffee Company; McDonald’s (Pemberton); Valley Chainsaw and Recreation, Spud Valley Sporting Goods; Whistler Jetboating; Great Glass Elevator; Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory; Pemberton Valley Nurseries; Big Sky Dental; Sheena Fraser, Betsy Linnell, Lisa Bartlett, Christine Andrew; Tamara Beaton; Karen Bauckham; Victoria Downes, Louise Stacey-Deegan, Wendy Brookbank, Pat MacKenzie, Heather Prohaska, Dan Kauffman, Randy Lincks and all the fathers and daughters!
