Thanks to over 170,000 online votes, Creston has won a spot on the Kraft Celebration Tour! The tour is coming to Creston on Friday, Aug. 17. TSN’s Sports Centre will be doing a live broadcast from the Creston & District Community Complex starting at 3 p.m. local time, hosted by Darren Dutchyshen and Kate Beirness. As part of the Kraft Celebration Tour, $25,000 is being awarded to the Creston & District Society for Community Living’s Therapeutic Riding Program. There will be a free Kraft-sponsored barbecue, family friendly activities and games, free samples of Kraft products, and live music before the TSN broadcast. 

Being the first of 10 stops on the Kraft Celebration Tour will give Creston the opportunity to showcase its community spirit to the rest of Canada. Community organizations are encouraged to participate in the event by setting up a booth to promote awareness or collect donations. Local sports, arts and culture groups are welcome to put on displays or demonstrations.  

As well, event organizers are looking for approximately 70 to 80 volunteers.  Volunteer jobs include:

  • Ten to 15 able bodied folks are needed to help unload all of the paraphernalia when TSN arrives in town on Thursday, August 16th. 
  • Setting up booths and BBQ picnic area
  • Preparing the BBQ lunch
  • Passing out Kraft samples
  • Dressing up as a Mascot
  • Supervising games
  • Handing out prizes
  • Cleaning up after the party

This is Creston’s party, let’s do it up big! To sign up as a volunteer or to participate as a group, please contact email gocreston@hotmail.com. For more information, please visit http://gocreston.ca/
