We occupied our tent by the big Christmas tree in Centennial Square again this year in the spirit of giving back to our community. 700 Victorians popped into our tent to enjoy a fresh cup of hot mulled cider as they celebrated the Downtown Business Association’s annual Light Up event, before the start of the Santa Clause parade. Just one week earlier, the square was the site of “Occupy Victoria” so we felt it was important to lighten the mood by wearing special shirts to mark the occasion. Thankfully, Victorian’s appreciated our cheeky humor.
On November 22, 2011, our housekeeping team brought their talents as 9 Indian Chefs to work and impressed our chef by producing over 530 Samosas in 6 hours. The tasty Vegetarian morsels will be sold to fellow colleagues and their families with all funds going to the Mustard Seed Food Bank. As an employee, I can’t wait to get a hold of my order. They are truly a treat and a great way for our housekeeping team to give back to their community.
Experience the true Christmas spirit by helping the local families of Victoria!
Every year we’ve been holding Pancakes with Santa Fundraiser, a great way to help families in Victoria where 100% of the proceeds go to the Times Colonist Christmas Fund.
You can enjoy breakfast cooked by Executive Chef, Garrett Schack and served by the management and employees of the Chateau Victoria Team. Unfortunately the popular event has been sold out for quiet some time now. Keep an eye out in the Times Colonist next year to get your tickets.
See you next year!
We are delighted to announce our pool and hot-tub area will be open ahead of schedule. If you are staying with us on November 23, 2011 or later, please make a point to bring your swimming gear and try our our new hot-tub. Let us know what you think of the updated look of the facility.
