Stop. Hammer Time.

(Who doesn’t want to be able to start a post that way?) 

Join the Spare Parts Adventure Society at Hammer Time! A Pop-Up Fundraiser on April 27, 2018 at 7:30 at New Westminster’s River Market. Tickets are $20 per person and all money raised go directly to helping the Spare Parts Adventure Society bring more pop-up playground events to New Westminster’s parks and events.

The fundraiser includes a building contest where everybody is invited to use spare parts and their imaginations and creativity to build something exciting. Parents often remark that their kids have a load of fun building and creating at Spare Parts Adventure pop-up playground, so now everybody will have the chance. The best creations will win prizes such as a Steel & Oak gift pack and swag from Patterson Brands.

There is also a silent auction with over 20 incredible items generously donated by local companies such as Wild Rice, The Wine Factory, and Cartwright Jewelers. And if you like theatre and live entertainment, come out and bid on packages from Massey Theatre, Bard On The Beach, Out On Screen, and the Vancouver Symphony.

Dedicated to offering children and youth access to free child-driven educational opportunities, Spare Parts Adventure holds workshops and day activities where kids build their own playgrounds using raw materials such as rope, tarps, pvc pipe, wood, tires, or anything that enables a child’s imagination to flourish. Since 2016 Spare Parts Adventure has put on workshops for youth in various New Westminster neighbourhoods, helping them to develop self-reliance by taking risks and experience active play in barrier-free environments while developing their problem solving and teamwork skills.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available through Eventbrite — search for “Hammer Time” at eventbrite.com. More information about Spare Parts Adventure can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/sparepartsadventure/
