Santa Window Walk a success

Inaugural event drew dozens to downtown Surrey last month.

Surrey residents walked the walk last month.

The first-ever Santa Window Walk, that is.

Participants of the inaugural event made their way through downtown Surrey, beginning at the Quattro development on the corner of 108 Avenue and Whalley Boulevard, where the Surrey Hospice Society offered up hot chocolate.

Highlights from the fundraiser included an organ grinder, Trinidadian and Tobagan steel drums and homemade cupcakes sold by Surrey Christmas Bureau.

Those strolling by Guildford Park Secondary were treated to sounds from a choir organized by the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation, and the Centre for Child Development offered a candy pull station.

More than $800 was raised through the window walk, with funds benefitting organizations including the Surrey Christmas Bureau.
