Downtown Barrie’s May Days Contributes to COPE Service Dogs

The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) is pleased to announce that their Community Connects event May Days raised $500.00 in donations for COPE Service Dogs.

May Days is a promotional contest encouraging people to shop and dine Downtown. With every purchase, customers receive a ballot for a chance to win a $3500+ prize package of merchandise and gift certificates provided by participating downtown businesses. To increase their chances of winning, customers purchased additional ballots at 3 for $5.00. All proceeds from these additional ballot sales were donated to this year’s charity, COPE Service Dogs.

COPE Service Dogs is an incredible organization that focuses primarily on aiding individuals with mobility issues. These amazing dogs also work with students, seniors and can even be found in dental offices, hospices, courtrooms and any other setting where a canine-human bond can be beneficial. The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) was thrilled to have worked with COPE Service Dogs this year.
