Christmas came early to Whistler this year — the Rotary Club of Whistler Millennium’s “Christmas in July,” that is!
We wish many Merry Christmases and a sleigh full of thanks to Mike Duggan, Kathleen Holton and the whole team at Nita Lake Lodge for the vision and support in making “Christmas in July” a successful fundraiser! This fun event would not have been possible without you, and we look forward to many more. The Victorian Carollers made the whole event so special.
All of our sponsors were full of Christmas spirit and we thank them all SO much: Blackcomb Cold Beer & Wine, Brian Brown, Creekbread, Creekside Market, Dairy Queen, Delta Whistler Village Suites, Everyday Pearls, Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Lodging Ovations, Lyn & Alex Stroshin, Mountain Galleries, Nicklaus North, Nicobeads, Nita Lake Lodge, Norwex, Peak to Green, R.J. McGregor & Associates, The Core, Whistler Baskets, Whistler Blackcomb — You made the elves’ holiday easier, as there was no need to make any new toys. A special thank you to Santa Claus for taking time out of his relaxing holiday in Whistler to pose for some photos and share in Christmas cheer. Thank you all for your support of the Rotary Club of Whistler Millennium!
Huge Christmas stockings of thanks to everyone who supported the first-time event by inviting their friends and family, enjoying Christmas dinner at Nita Lake Lodge, stocking up on holiday baking, playing our games, and by bidding on our silent auction items. We loved that you enjoyed the Christmas tree, Santa, the carollers and children’s crafts on a hot, sunny day in July!
We always appreciate all of our Rotarians who work so hard in support of our causes. All proceeds from this event fund both community and international projects of the Rotary Club of Whistler Millennium, one of four Rotary clubs in the Sea to Sky area.
