A South Surrey family resource centre is one of 10 groups selected to benefit from Choices Markets’ Star of the Season program this year.

Semiahmoo Family Place – located in the Kensington Prairie Community Centre (16824 32 Ave.) – offers “a safe and fun place for our young children to play together while their parents/caregivers have the opportunity to network, support and learn from each other.”

Star of the Season, in its 14th year, encourages Choices’ customers to purchase a $2 holiday star between Nov. 15 and Dec. 24.

The proceeds are to be split between the 10 organizations, which benefit families across Metro Vancouver and the Okanagan.
