Calling all BC bloggers!

Following the success of the CCMA Gift LoungeThe Uptown Gift Box Company is proudly producing the Whistler Film Festival VIP Gift Lounge on December 4th… and we want you to join in the fun!

This invitation-only VIP lounge is being held at the Westin Hotel + Resort’s Mountainside Club. Picture a cosy chalet, warm fireplaces, huge windows looking onto the snowy Whistler landscapes… heaven!  VIPs will attend the lounge to collect a fabulous swag bag filled with treats from Canadian artisans and local companies.  This lounge will be buzzing with celebs and a-list media… and, as The Uptown Gift Box Company has arranged once again, a blogger’s lounge similar to this one at the CCMAs.

The Uptown GiftBox Company was recently awarded The Surrey Board of Trade’s 2009 Business Excellence Award. Known for her support of independent Canadian brands, owner Gabrielle Durning’s unique approach was a big draw for festival organizers as The Whistler Film Festival is synonymous with independent filmmaking and will showcase over 80 films including a record number of premieres.

We are looking for five bloggers to join Kristi of, coordinator of the Whistler Film Festival blogger’s lounge.  Each blogger will need to propose a charity of choice, to receive one of the same VIP gift bags that the invited VIPs are receiving… you will donate this bag to your charity to auction off/use to raise funds.  If you’re interested in rubbing shoulders with VIPS from around the world, capturing special behind-the-scene moments for your blog readers, and having an absolute blast – send your charity of choice and a brief hello to
