Celebrate the Christmas season at VRCA’s virtual Holiday Happy Hour event on Thursday, December 17, 2020! Through our partnership with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, you’ll not only enjoy some virtual holiday cheer but also learn how to concoct the newest seasonal cocktails alongside expert mixologist, Frank Palter, known for his innovative and delicious creations.
We encourage attendees to follow along, create their own signature bevies, and share their experience through the virtual live chat! A list of ingredients will be provided in advance of the event.
Let’s be social, from a distance! Celebrate your teams by providing a cocktail kit or join us individually for some fun and a chance to win some amazing door prizes! Watch for the link to the live video feed that will be distributed in advance so you can join us from anywhere.
This year, we want to support the three worthy causes below. Please consider supporting one or more of the charities by making in-person and/or virtual donations of money, food and toys between November 5 – December 17.
Back by popular demand, the 50/50 draw gives you a chance to win half the money collected, with the other half donated to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Tickets are $20 for a 5-pack and can be purchased between November 5 - December 10 during event registration. Tickets can be picked up at the VRCA office or mailed out. The winning ticket will be drawn and announced during the virtual Holiday Happy Hour event on December 17, so don’t miss out!
