I couldn’t be prouder or more excited that our office is taking over the administration of the Sunshine Coast Elves Club in this, its 50th anniversary year.
Lynn Nestman, the driving force of the Elves Club for the past six years, will continue to be involved but my colleagues and I at RE/MAX City Realty Gibsons will be raising money and distributing gift certificates this Christmas.
What was once turkey dinners and Christmas hampers has evolved into gift cards and gift certificates that ensures no one goes without.
Donate online through the Elves Club website or purchase gift certificates from your favorite local businesses and drop them off at RE/MAX City Realty’s Gibsons’ office on Gibsons Way. Or you can visit the Elves Club website for a list of other drop-off locations. Donations will receive a tax receipt.
Please note – it is a tough page to read and navigate so an elf will probably be visiting the nice folk at Topshelf Creative to see if we can get an upgrade in the future, so stay tuned for that.
It may not happen until next year, so if in doubt, drop your donations off to RE/MAX City Realty located at unit 101-938 Gibsons Way (the professional building next door to Gibsons Building Supply).
You can also fill out an application for you or someone in need at that location.
Teamwork makes this dream work which means volunteers are still needed. Visit ElvesClub.ca for more info on how you can participate or learn how you can apply for a Christmas gift card.
A nice evening of perusing some shops in Gibsons would be an opportunity to pick up such a gift card for people in need and, fortunately, just such an opportunity is happening this week.
The businesses of Gibsons Park Plaza invite you to join them for a spectacular pre-holiday shopping night Thursday, Nov. 8 from 4pm to 8pm.
Each participating business has a unique special offer to show their customer appreciation this fun evening. Be sure to check out what each participating business has to offer. There’s all kinds of fabulous incentives at each business: store-wide sales, special offers, swag bags, door prizes, tastings, and more.
Be sure to come early and dress for a line-up. But with a covered walkway, heaters, live music, warm refreshments & lots of familiar faces – it’s all part of the fun.
To stay posted on updates, be sure to “join” the event on Facebook, “invite” your friends and check back on the page often to see what special offers will be coming your way (click on the ‘discussion’ tab to see posts by participating businesses.).
Participating businesses this year include: Embellish Emporium, Giggle ‘n Bloom, The Seasoned Kitchen, Dreamland Sleep Shop and Starbucks Canada.
