Treasure Hunt and BBQ - June 20, 2015, 10 am to 2 pm - This year's charity is The Boys and Girls Club.
The Father's Day Fling: Treasure Hunt & BBQ is an event celebrating families. The merchants of the Fort William neighbourhood work together to invite all families into the area to share our many hidden gems. Our goal is to not only support a local charity, but also to introduce the people to our shops; show off what we can do for you; show you that we are here and in the end, we hope that everyone coming out has had a lot of fun along the way. We encourage the children and even the adults to have their faces painted, perhaps pick up a hula hoop and join in the fun. We will have games for the families to play, and music will be provided by a professional DJ. There is a BBQ in which tickets are sold for $5 and those proceeds go directly to the Boys & Girls Club.
We invite people to participate in our treasure hunt. Go to each store, get your passport stamped, pick up a free goodie & by the end of the tour, you get to fill out your name and number to win one of many great prizes that are donated. As merchants, we all participate in the donation of a prize, but we also seek out sponsorship and prizes from other businesses. I am so pleased to say that this year, we have secured a free night's stay with complimentary breakfast for 4 at one of Thunder Bay's newest hotels.
