Terms of Participation
Teams are invited to participate in the competition by building a Gingerbread house design entry and their supporters are invited to contribute financially to the campaign by ‘voting with their dollars’ for the entry of their choice. Every dollar counts as one vote.
The GingerCane Contest is organized from our home city of Calgary, Alberta. The contest intent is to provide a fun & engaging means of raising money for children’s hospital charities while bringing the home building industry together. The money raised for each team will go to the children’s hospital foundation in the jurisdiction of the team is based from. The GingerCane Contest has entered into formal agreements with the principle providers of children’s health services in Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. For contributions made to entries from outside of these jurisdictions, to the extent allowable by any body of judicial or regulatory authority, we will endeavor to distribute a pro rata share of net proceeds of the campaign to hospital charities in reasonable proximity to the physical location of those entries.
Contributing to the Campaign
Supporters may opt to sponsor the campaign with a direct contribution (Contact email@example.com for full sponsorship opportunities) or by supporting one or more entries with a team specific contribution.
