Cranium Challenge benefits 4R’s

4R’s Education Centre (Soc.) invites you to join them Jan. 26 in the Evergreen Lounge at the Florence Filberg Centre.

A TEAM CALLED Grandma's Got the Kids won the Comox Valley Cranium championship last year.

Mark your calendars, collect and register your team of four, sharpen your game play and prepare to boost your fun factor in the eighth annual Cranium Challenge.

Prizes will be awarded for the winning team, the best team name, the best costumes (optional) and more. The evening will be rounded out by trivia contests, spot prizes and, new this year, a 50/50 draw. Pizza, snacks and refreshments will also be available for sale.

4R’s Education Centre (Soc.) invites you to join them Jan. 26 in the Evergreen Lounge at the Florence Filberg Centre for this round-robin tournament, which promises to deliver action and hilarity suitable for the entire family.

All proceeds go 4R’s, the non-profit organization which has provided specialized one-on-one teaching to children with learning differences and/or disabilities since 1989.

Call 250-338-4890 or stop by the 4R’s office at 581 McPhee Ave. in Courtenay to register by the Jan. 24 deadline.
