Prizes will be announced on the event’s Facebook page.

All entries will be displayed in the lobby of the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre, at 1250 Rogers Way in Aberdeen, from Dec. 1 to Dec. 24.

Those viewing the creations will be encouraged to bring Christmas gifts, which will be donated to the families at the shelter.

In addition, for every gingerbread house entered in the competition, Uptown Chefs will donate $10 to the shelter.

As a thank you to those viewing the gingerbread houses, all who attend, donate a gift and vote on the creations will receive a complimentary hot chocolate and house-baked cookie at Romeos Kitchen + Spirits, which is inside the hotel.

To register to take part in the contest, call 250-682-0424.
