VERNON – Secret agents have had their mission extended to recruit more operatives and to support Greater Vernon businesses and non-profits.
Mission Possible Presented by Tourism Vernon was scheduled to end May 2 after a four-week run, but now, another week has been thrown into the mix, and Mission Possible will run until 11:59 p.m. May 9.
“The life of a spy is one of uncertainty and curve balls, and we wanted to keep our super sleuths on their toes and ready to ramp up maneuvers that highlight the importance of local businesses and non-profits to our community,” said Dan Proulx, Greater Vernon Chamber general manager.
All of the tasks from the previous four weeks are open to pursue during the surprise last week.
The Ultimate Staycation Grand Prize includes:
- A two-night staycation for two at Sparkling Hill Resort
- A round of golf at The Rise
- Dinner at Marten Brewing
- A wine tour with Mojo Tours
- World of Whisky Tasting at Okanagan Spirits
“We have been overwhelmed by the response to Mission Possible but we know there are so many more people who want to do their part for Greater Vernon. This covert operation of infiltrating businesses, gathering intelligence and solving clues is a fun way of showing your community pride,” said Proulx.
“Tell your friends, family and co-workers about Mission Possible and make sure they join the movement to support our local business owners during challenging times.”
The tasks for each week can be found at https://www.vernonchamber.ca/mission-possible/ Any or all tasks may be completed to submit your entry for the grand prize. The more weekly tasks you complete, the more opportunities you have to win.
