Windsor Plywood Cranbrook has claimed first prize in the Gingerbread House contest for the local Boys and Girls Club.
Owner Steve has donated the entire $500 prize back to the Boys and Girls Club charity.
An additional $140 was also raised at an auction for the actual gingerbread house. It measures 3 feet by 4 feet and is made from 3 gallons of icing, Baltic Birch plywood framing, gingerbread logs, real rocks, plenty of candy and required 10 hours of work.
It was a great chance to give back to the community and put some smiles on kids’ faces.
Windsor Plywood plans on being a sponsor at next year’s event and will also provide small gingerbread houses for children to assemble.
The contest garnered 30 entries, 40 gift baskets and 12 decorated trees which were sold at auction and silent bids. Over $7000 was raised and lots of fun was had!
