The Hunt 2017 (October 22, 2017)

Tickets are on sale now. Please click here to order tickets.

Supporting the Whistler Children’s Centre, this event is aimed at raising funds AND getting Moms and Sons out having fun in the community! Monies raised will go directly towards enabling the Centre to upgrade the facility, the programs and the overall quality of care to our community’s children. This 2nd annual event is expected to draw over 300 participants for an app based scavenger hunt and après party in Whistler Village. Event ticket sales, carnival style games and a silent auction table will be the main fundraising activities for The Hunt. We are seeking volunteers. We have a variety of shifts available and are happy to work around your schedule if you have conflicts. Please read more about the volunteer opportunity and sign up today!

This Whistler Children’s Centre fundraising event will involve Mom (or significant adult female – aunt, grandma, friend of the family, etc.) and son teams taking part in a mobile app based scavenger hunt around Whistler Village. The scavenger hunt will require teams to check in (via GPS), take photos and answer questions at locations around the village. Teams are encouraged to dress up (hunt theme, team colours, or anything goes)!
