Sun Peaks, BC - Skiers and boarders can enjoy excellent early season conditions at Sun Peaks Resort on Monday, December 3 for only $2.00 plus a non-perishable food donation. Guests will be supporting the local Food Bank while having a great time on the slopes with family and friends.
“Our goal is to raise $6,000 and fill a 360 cubic foot trailer with food donations to deliver to the Kamloops Food Bank this holiday season,” says Anne Marie Dill, Guest Services Manager for Sun Peaks Resort.
This year, canned fish and poultry as well as peanut butter are the top two needed items. Other needed items include baby food and formula, canned stew, chili, brown beans, canned vegetables and fruit, dry pasta, rice, canned spaghetti sauce, cereal and canned soup.
Toonie Day at Sun Peaks continues to be a strong winter and summer tradition and an anticipated opportunity to give back to the community. Last year, Sun Peaks’ community and its guests raised just over $6,000 through its two Toonie Day events.
Sun Fun Tours, through Canada West Coachlines, is once again shuttling guests from Kamloops up to Sun Peaks on weekends this winter and will operate a bonus day on Toonie Day. Regular rates will apply ($25.00/round trip). Check the website for all of the times and pick-up/drop-off locations!
