Great Mates last forever Abbott and Costello Peanut Butter and Jelly Wine and Cheese and Tim Horton's Smile Cookies and The Nutcracker!
ITIM HORTONS® annual Smile Cookie™ campaign raises a record amount of (cookie) dough for the Coast’s Nutcracker Ballet
There have been many great pairs in the history of time: Abbott and Costello, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Wine and Cheese, and Tim Horton’s Smile Cookies and The Nutcracker!
The pairing of Smile Cookies and The Nutcracker has produced some great results in the past, and this year’s campaign sold more cookies that any other Tim Horton’s in all of British Columbia!
The Sunshine Coast bought 11, 414 cookies! (translates to $11,414) "It's amazing how supportive our community is" exclaimed Kathleen Holmes, Artistic Director of Coasting Along Theatre Society, producers of the Nutcracker, “We had stores and offices buy for their staff and customers, and we had many people buy cookies to donate to others: Firefighters, RCMP, food bank, Senior Centres, etc. It was a week of giving smiles for sure!”
Coasting Along Theatre Society’s Nutcracker is a sweet production and this fundraising campaign sure helps raise the dough to keep the production spectacular!
Of course – this is a team effort – not only did the dancers and families sell the cookies, but Tim Horton’s staff baked them! Without those bakers putting in long days – we wouldn’t have come close – so thank you!
Rehearsals for the 7th season are going strong. New costumes are being designed and made as they do get a lot of wear and tear each year. And every year costumes and sets are enhanced. It helps keep the production fresh and with new dancers each year, changes have to be made.

Tickets are reserved seating and can be purchased at the SCCU Nutcracker Box Office or over the phone – 604-989-6050. For more information: www.coastingalongtheatre.org.
