Cupcakes are front and centre during a pair of fun events at Woodgrove Centre Saturday (Sept. 17) by the water clock.
A cupcake-decorating contest runs from noon to 2 p.m. for three to seven-year-olds and eight- to 12-year-olds.
Kids will be able to decorate a cupcake for the contest, as well as one to eat. One winner from each group wins a $250 Woodgrove gift card.
At 3 p.m., adults with a sweet tooth and strong stomach take part in a cupcake-eating contest.
Thirty pre-registered contestants plough through as many cupcakes as they can in five minutes with the winner earning a $500 Woodgrove gift card.
Along with the $1,000 in gift cards, the mall is making a matching donation of $1,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island.
“This is a timely donation for them,” said Jonathan Dallison, Woodgrove marketing director. “It comes in the middle of their Big Give campaign where they are seeking $1,000 contributions from local businesses.
“September is also Big Brothers Big Sisters month, so our thoughts naturally go to that organization and the work they do.”
