October Tasting Trail in Support of Gilda’s Club

Invitation to Presser: Thursday, October 3rd, 2019 at 3:30pm at Unity Market Cafe (25 Toronto Street)

The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) is gearing up for the 5th annual October Tasting Trail. Please join us on Thursday, October 3rd at Unity Market Cafe (25 Toronto Street) at 3:30pm for the official kick off.

The October Tasting Trail is a Community Connects event that runs every Saturday throughout the month of October. Visitors purchase a $10 tasting passport at any of the participating restaurants or cafes and follow the trail to enjoy free samples during select times. Visitors who make more than 10 stops along the October Tasting Trail can submit their stamped passports at their final stop to be eligible for entry into a draw for a $250+ prize package. The prize package consists of incredible merchandise and gift certificates from the participating downtown restaurants and cafes.

This year, the $10 from the purchase of each passport will be collected for Gilda’s Club of Simcoe Muskoka. An affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, Gilda’s Club is dedicated to providing support, education and hope to all people impacted by cancer, family members and friends of those diagnosed, children, and people who have lost someone to cancer.

This October, make it a tasty one!
