Gingerbread House Event Helping to Make Participation Accessible to Everyone

The Gingerbread House Event announces their 2nd annual event to be held at the Parkinson Recreation Centre on November 27th, 2011 in Kelowna, British Columbia.
Nov. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Kelowna, BC – The 2nd Annual Gingerbread House Event is happy to announce that Ten Packaged Kit Registrations are being provided to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. These registrations, sponsored by Crema Communications, Jason Neumann of Century 21, Okanagan Car Care, Gut R Dun, Best Way Roofers Supply and other generous donators will help to meet one of the events core goals: “Ensure that anyone can participate regardless of their financial situation.” The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs will chose individuals or families that would like to participate but are unable to due to financial reasons. In 2010, a sponsored couple won the Adult Packaged Kit Category with a wonderful creation.  The Gingerbread House Event looks forward to seeing what creativity will come from this year’s entrants.

The Event has three categories to provide different challenges for different people: Open, Packaged Kit and Chef Category. The Open Category allows entrants to build their house at home and bring it to the event. The Packaged Kit is where each entrant receives and builds a packaged gingerbread house kit right at the event. It’s an excellent option for the family to come for a fun event during the day. The Chef category allows cooks and chefs to enter their creation in a bragging rights competition.

Registration in the Gingerbread House Event is available now at Registration is $20, $25, or $30 depending on category and age. Rules and registration forms are available at the website.
Dozens of entries and hundreds of public viewers are expected at the event. The Gingerbread House Event awards over $1000 in cash and prizes. A public choice award will be presented this year to the most popular entry as chosen by the viewers.
Want to see the houses without building your own gingerbread house? No problem, the gingerbread houses are available for public viewing from 3-6pm. Viewing is $2/adult, $1/child or free with a non-perishable food donation to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs Christmas Hampers.
