Contribution and Community
Whistler is known for its wild ways and party hard lifestyle, while there is a time and a place for this, it creates many problem behaviors within the community that often go unaddressed. These include community norms favorable towards alcohol, binge drinking, drugs and poverty. LUNA serves to provide alternatives to the at risk population by hosting affordable, alcohol free, social events.
Since its inception in 2003, LUNA programming has contributed to a 20% reduction in alcohol related calls to the RCMP. LUNA hopes to continue to reduce the emphasis on alcohol related activities within the resort community by growing awareness and hosting more alternative events.
The LUNA program is only made possible by our very generous annual sponsors:
Resort Municipality of Whistler
LUNA has been a municipal program since 2004; most of our funding comes from the RMOW.
Nesters Market and Pharmacy
Generously donates $1000 per year as well as reusable bags to all members
Rotary Club of Whistler
Funder since 2005. Rotary provides LUNA with $1,000 annually for our pool party and full moon snowshoeing.
