The fourth annual Creative Challenge for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice (CPCH) kicks off Saturday, Sept. 13 at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

The event will see businesses from around the Fraser Valley showcase their creativity and philanthropic spirit by building Lego sculptures and donating to CPCH.

Corporate Lego creations will be judged by Sevenoaks shoppers and celebrity judges including Mayor Bruce Banman, Coun. Les Barkman, Country 107 FM morning show host Chris Coburn, and Lego certified professional Robin Sather.

All proceeds from the Creative Challenge will support Canuck Place’s Dave Lede House in Abbotsford.

New to this year’s event is the addition of a Kids Build competition – an event where kids can drop off their own Lego creations to enter to win a $50 gift card from Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

The event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Dave Lede House is now operating community services in phase two of a four-phase opening plan, said CEO Margaret McNeil.

“Canuck Place is grateful for the continued support from the community make clinical care possible for over 560 children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them,” she said.
