‘If you’ve been to one; you’ve been to all’ – Christmas Bazaars, that is. Not true. Barrie Uncovered in partnership with The Queens sends everyone a Merry Christmas Thank You for making our very first bazaar such a huge success.
From all accounts, it was a unique shopping experience. With comfortable indoor shopping, the scent of Mulled Apple Cider wafting through and everything in full Christmas dress, The majestic Queens welcomed all with open arms.
Having decided to sponsor Youth Haven in their collection of funds for Boxes of Hope, we organized the many friends and clients of Barrie Uncovered to come forth with great raffle items. With the combined efforts of the Youth Haven Information table and the raffle, we were able to raise $1253.00 to help with their mission.
We also asked our guests to donate an unwrapped toy as an entrance fee, which allowed us to fill a vehicle and head off to the delighted staff at Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions in time to start their gift collecting for Christmas.
Many Thanks to:
The Wraptastic4 Vintage Throne Clarity of Connection
Action Rehab JN Roofing Tandoori Kingdom
Quesada Bayfield The Clothing Guy Chatters Hair Salon
Last Level Lounge Main Stream Therapy Sweet Spot Family Counselling
Nothing is more fun than having everyone enter their name in a door prize draw. Again, we have to thank many people for allowing us to have such great door prizes. Each of our vendors offered gifts to add to the basket, as did Audi Barrie.
