Downtown Barrie’s Hot Cocoa Trail Event Contributes to Barrie Out of the Cold

Downtown Barrie’s Hot Cocoa Trail Event Contributes to Barrie Out of the Cold The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) once again staged it’s annual Hot Cocoa Trail event with over 10 cafes in the downtown core taking part. Each participant designed a gourmet hot chocolate for the event and proceeds raised through the sale of Hot Cocoas contributed $700 for this year’s charity.

As part of the Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA)’s ‘Community Connects’ program, all proceeds generated through the Hot Cocoa Trail event are utilized to support local charitable organizations. This year, proceeds will be donated to Barrie Out of the Cold; which provides safe, respectful and welcoming overnight accommodation and meals to the homeless from November to April.

Next up in the ‘Community Connects’ program calendar is the month-long event, MayDays. We are encouraging people to come downtown during the month of May to shop for a chance to win a bountiful prize package. We are also excited about a new addition to MayDays…Stay tuned!
