Both Mr. and Mrs Claus were in fine form as they arrived at Vista 18. Their arrival raised the excitement in the room to a feverish level, fueled in part by the syrupy sweet breakfast donated by the hotel. This has become a decade old annual tradition and continues to play a vital role to both families who enjoy contributing and to those who benefit from the giving in our community.
The Chateau Victoria hotel staff donate their time to serve, the hotel donates the food and many guests donate far more than the price of the meal to raise the much needed funds for the Times Colonist Christmas Fund. Our suppliers, GFS foods and Oughtred Coffee also donated their products for this event. This year $4,889.05 was raised by this event alone. All funds stay in the community and go to families in need. for more information on The TC Christmas Fund or to donate, click here.
