Successful Pancakes with Santa Event!

Posted in By marionann

Over 950 pancakes were flying off the grill on Saturday, December 10th, in Vista 18 for the 5th annual Pancakes with Santa fundraiser for the Times Colonist Christmas Fund.

Thank you everyone who attended.  You helped make this a very successful event, raising over $5200 this year!

Executive Chef Garrett Schack and the kitchen team had a great time preparing pancakes, which were served by the management and employees of the Chateau Victoria Team.

We can’t forget Mr. & Mrs. Claus who were there to thank everyone in person!

Thank you again for making this a successful event! Looking forward to seeing you next year.

Chef having fun in the kitchen!

Chateau Victoria Helps Usher in the Christmas Season

Posted in By mark

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.
