Victoria, BC (October 16th, 2008) – Country Grocer Esquimalt and the United Way of Greater Victoria are pleased to announce the 3rd annual pumpkin carving event.
On October 25th, from 11am-2pm at Country Grocer Esquimalt, located at 1153 Esquimalt Rd in Victoria, the store will be hosting numerous family fun events such as pumpkin carving, face painting, a BBQ by donation for the United Way of Victoria and much more. Esquimalt Neighbourhood House will be on location as well giving a free beading workshop.
“We understand the importance of investing in local programs that benefit families and the community as a whole. We are delighted to be able to give to this worthwhile cause and have some fun at the same time”, says Store Manager, Jason Boer.
