Whistler Adaptive at Cornucopia 2016

Whistler Adaptive Sports Program has been chosen once again as the 2016 partner charity for Cornucopia - Whistler's premiere food & wine festival! The festival is held from November 10 – 20, 2016 and will feature a sumptuous variety of hands-on seminars, fascinating winery dinners, gala tasting events, and sizzling after-parties. As the charity recipient for Cornucopia, we are tasked with soliciting items for the silent auctions at the festival's flagship events - CRUSH Grand Gala Tasting  and POURED - with all proceeds benefiting Whistler Adaptive. We've also been asked to bolster Cornucopia’s volunteer base, and our own donations, throughout the event. Proceeds will assist Whistler Adaptive in creating sport, therapeutic, and recreational opportunities for individuals with all types of disabilities, at every level. We would love your help to kick off our next winter season in a big way!  

Want to volunteer for Whistler Adaptive at Cornucopia?
Then tell us how you want to help and when you're available by filling in the Whistler Adaptive at Cornucopia Volunteer Registration.

How you can help

  • We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with experience in event organization, networking, marketing, and communications to join our organizing committee which will oversee all aspects of the event requiring our involvement including soliciting silent auction items, scheduling, marketing, and communications.
  • Help with pre-event logistics: solicit and gather auction items, lend a hand in the office, put up posters or hand out flyers. 
  • During the festival from November 10 to 20, we need volunteers to help at the silent auction, coat check and event entrance. Help promote Whistler Adaptive and encourage donations from patrons! The more representation we have at Cornucopia, the more funds we will raise.
  • We are looking for silent auction item donors interested in the unique opportunity to showcase their great products to a desirable demographic while helping a worthwhile charity.
  • We are also hoping that all of our Facebook Friends and Twitter and Instagram Followers help us to actively promote the event by sharing our posts with their Friends and Followers.
