Bring Your ‘Eh Game Quiz

Citizens of Barrie – Get your Game On!

Canada’s Top Mayor Award has joined forces with Mayors from across Canada to raise funds for Food Banks Canada Covid-19 Relief Fund.

Show creator Dawn Mucci, a local resident, who we know from past articles on our Barrie Uncovered website, explains:

“I was inspired by Mayors like Bonnie Crombie and Naheed Nenshi who were already doing great work in their municipalities to support their local food banks.  I wanted to amplify that effort by collaborating with Mayors and all Canadians to Bring their Eh Game on a national level to help those struggling with food insecurity.  Not only is the show fun and entertaining, but we also get to learn more about Mayors and their community’s best attributes as well as the people, places, and things that make their cities and towns special.”

This Sunday evening at 7 p.m. our own Mayor Lehman is playing his part!

TV host Adam Grow is hosting this fun and interactive game show that celebrates grassroots leadership, community, and hometown heroes.

And…apparently this last episode takes an unusual twist!!

100% of the donations from the show will support people living with food insecurity across Canada.

In speaking with Sharon Palmer, the new Executive Director of our Barrie Food Bank we were told that there are many clients who have lost their jobs or had hours cut back that need help to buy groceries. 

Numbers have shown more of our senior populations are coming  to the Food Bank for assistance too.   

In fact, during the months of January and February there were over 960 households requiring assistance with food.  This is up 60% over the same period in 2020.

So come Barrie – Bring Your ‘EH Game and support our Mayor!

Mayors Bring Their ‘Eh Game!

Canada’s Top Mayor Award has teamed up with Canadian Comedian Adam Growe of Cash Cab to present #BringYourEhGameQuizShow to local viewers nationwide!

Introducing Dawn!

Show creator Dawn Mucci, a local resident, who we know from past articles on our Barrie Uncovered website, explains:

“I was inspired by Mayors like Bonnie Crombie and Naheed Nenshi who were already doing great work in their municipalities to support their local food banks.  I wanted to amplify that effort by collaborating with Mayors and all Canadians to Bring their Eh Game on a national level to help those struggling with food insecurity.  Not only is the show fun and entertaining, but we also get to learn more about Mayors and their community’s best attributes as well as the people, places, and things that make their cities and towns special.”

Keep the Date!

The virtual web series will be live streamed weekly on social media and Rogers community TV stations across Canada.  The premier episode will be live on Facebook @CTMAWARD, March 7th at 7pm.

And the Mayors Are:

This very fun food challenge will feature Canada’s Top Mayor Award nominees from St. John’s NF, Mississauga ON, Halifax NS, Yellowknife NWT, Orillia ON, Drumheller AB, Innisfil ON, Brampton ON, Barrie ON, and many more!

The Mayors will have their trivia skills tested for sure…and what a great cause!  Even before COVID, food banks across Canada were seeing over one million visits each month.  Now with donations decreasing, grocery bills increasing and reduced volunteers, continuing financial support is very necessary.

As Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie says:

“I always love some good-spirited mayoral rivalry, and this was such a fun way to showcase the best our cities have to offer.  But above all, this is about supporting those most in need.  Now, more than ever, our Food Banks need our help to ensure our most vulnerable residents don’t go hungry.”

And Our Host...

On that note, Host Adam Growe tells us:

“In addition to an entertaining and fun show, viewers can play along interactively with me and challenge the mayors during the show to win great prizes.

All the Details

Details will be available on the broadcasts and here.  Future episodes are being planned to continue the fundraising efforts and feel-good vibes.  Mayors and community partners are invited to join the effort here or donate directly here.

All in all, we can look forward to an excellent view of other cities across Canada as well as having a bit of fun, don’t cha’ think?
