Support local charity, go retro


Local youth empowerment organization Zero Ceiling may have padded their coffers with some coin after a recent blowout rummage sale but they’re not stopping there.

In an effort to raise even more money the charity is kicking off the winter season retro-style at Moe Joe’s the same day Whistler Mountain opens for the season.

There will be prizes for the best retro costumes and tickets are only $5 in advance.

The money raised at the party will go into the same pot as the $3,300 raised at Sunday’s giant rummage sale.

"When the doors opened there must have been over 50 people lining up to grab the best bargains," said Joanna Woods, program co-ordinator.

She’s hoping for the same on Thursday, Nov. 28 at Moe Joe’s. Doors open at 9 p.m. For advanced tickets call 604-932-6869.

Zero Ceiling brings Vancouver street kids to Whistler and gives them the chance to become snowboard instructors at Whistler-Blackcomb.

Since it was founded in 1997, 12 teens have graduated from the program.
