The 18 charities last year raised $122,591 from the event, while over $1.5 million has been raised since CPP’s inception. Charities that have participated in the past have raised between $2,500 and $80,000 in one year, through corporate sponsorship and pledges or donations. [MORE]

It’s been a wonderful year! So glad you could join us! Time to celebrate! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Was over in Victoria over Christmas and they had the government buildings well lit up for Christmas. It was raining when I went to take this photos so it took a couple of tries before I got one without water on the lens but it turned out pretty good.
