They did not come to party; they came to destroy and they left $20,000 damage after 100 people crashed a teenager's party in Kelowna last Saturday night. Police say word of the gathering spread on Facebook.

Katie Poppy and her partner were skiing at Big White at the time and were called home early to a house that was severely damaged.

Their teenage son has some explaining to do.

Chris Walker also spoke with Susan Foisy, a family support worker with the Bridge Youth and Family Services group in Kelowna about how to prevent these devastating events.
