Do all your family and friends rave about your pie-making skills after your annual Thanksgiving get-togethers? Do you think you might just make the best pie in all of Kamloops?

If you think you have the pie-making skills to compete with some of the best amateur bakers in the region, then the B.C. Wildlife Park invites you to put them to the test.

The local wildlife park is hosting a pie-baking contest as a fundraiser to help purchase the materials needed for this school year’s educational programs.

The program will be offered to over 6,500 local students of all ages, but requires a financial boost to keep it going.

Those who want to help support the event, but unfortunately could burn water when it comes to their kitchen skills, can take part in the silent auction where the pie creations will be up for bid.

The winner of the contest doesn’t just go home with bragging rights; they also get a stay-and-play package donated by the South Thompson Inn and Conference Centre. The prize includes a one-night stay in a deluxe king room, dinner for two at Madisen’s Restaurant, and one 18-hole round for two at Rivershore Golf Links.

The event will be taking place on Oct. 8 at the B.C. Wildlife Park, located at 9077 Dallas Dr. The silent auction will run from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
