Downtown Barrie’s May Days in Support of Alzheimer Society

Invitation to Presser: Tuesday, April 30th at 2:00pm at Mantiques (56 Dunlop Street West)

May Days is back in Downtown Barrie! Join the Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) in kicking off this month-long event at Mantiques (56 Dunlop Street West) on Tuesday, April 25th at 2:00pm.

This year, the Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) is inviting the public to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather by heading downtown and supporting all of the incredible local businesses. All throughout May at participating locations, shoppers can make a purchase and enter a ballot to win an incredible prize package currently valued at $2500 and climbing. The prize package consists of gift certificates and goodies all provided by downtown Barrie businesses.

Shoppers will have the opportunity to support the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County at select locations and the downtown businesses have already started; approximately $500 have already been raised for this incredible organization.

“The Alzheimer Society is the leading not-for-profit health organization working nationwide to improve the quality of life for Canadians affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and advance the search for the cause and cure.”

“Donations help the Alzheimer Society offer services and support to people with dementia and their family and care partners.”

Join us on Tuesday, April 30th at 2:00pm at the Mantiques and help us spread the word on May Days, supporting local and the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County!

See you there!
