Capilano Mall Gives Back for the Holidays with Jingle Off Caroling Competition – December 14, 2013
Capilano Mall is kicking off the holiday season on a high note with its first annual Jingle Off Caroling Competition on December 14th from 1pm to 6pm in benefit of the North Shore Community Resources.
The public is encouraged to register to participate in the Jingle Off online at www.capilanomall.com/events or in person at the North Shore Community Resources office at Capilano Mall in one of three categories: business/community, children’s, or school choir. Once registered, each group will be assigned a timeslot where they will be invited to sing three of their favourite Christmas carols. Groups can be of any size – soloists, duets, and trios are welcome. Registration fees are as follows:
Children’s category $30
Community/Business Category $50
School Choir category $50
Prizes will be awarded in each category, including up to $1500 in gift cards to Capilano Mall as well as a $1000 grant for the winning secondary school and a $500 grant for the winning elementary school to help fund future choral initiatives. Additional prizes will also be handed out for Best Costume, Best Holiday Spirit, Most “GLEE”-ful, and many more. Celebrity judges for the competition will include BC based singer-songwriters Shawn Hook (www.shawnhook.com) and Katie Rox (www.katieroxmusic.com). Martin Millership, editor at the North Shore News and Janet Warren, recipient of the British Columbia Music Educator’s Professional Music Education Award will also be present.
“We are very excited about this event and the opportunity to support the North Shore Community Resources, which does such amazing work in the community,” said Shera Allibhai, Marketing Director of Capilano Mall, “With the public’s participation and support, we hope the Jingle Off can become a yearly tradition that brings North Shore residents together for a great cause.”
All proceeds from the event will go directly to the North Shore Community Resources, which relies primarily on community donations for its in-house programs. Available to North Shore residents year-round, these programs include family and child resource programs, seniors’ services, caregiver support, housing and community information, and childcare resource and referral.
