YHMA Charity Croquet Tournament

 

Third Annual Charity Croquet Tournament & Après Croquet

Saturday, July 30th | Lawns of the S.S. Klondike National Historic Site | Whitehorse

Tournament runs 12-5pm | Après Croquet runs 7-10pm

Win fantastic prizes, earn bragging rights and help support the work of YHMA! Teams of two will square off in this annual fundraiser and compete for great prizes—first place will take home two roundtrip tickets from Air North.

The day will be capped off with the ever-popular Après Croquet. Co-produced with Music Yukon, the Après will feature live music, a beer garden, and fun side games to challenge croquet and heritage skills, all tent-side at the SS Klondike. Our live auction will feature unique, heritage-themed items and experiences you won't find anywhere else.

Proceeds raised will support our work in maintaining LePage Park. A vibrant community space located in the heart of downtown Whitehorse, LePage Park is home to the annual Arts in the Park program, and several non-profits (including YHMA and Music Yukon) which live in its three designated historic buildings.

Congratulations to our 2016 winners!
