Jann is thrilled to showcase her entry into Main Street’s newest holiday tradition called “Get Your Tree On.” In collaboration with Karen Green from the Loft, the two of them have decorated their tree in the spirit of the season…that is to give back to those in need. Everything on their tree will be donated to St. Michael’s Church, along with a box of food for the food bank.
One of Vancouver’s most eclectic and vibrant shopping districts, Main Street, launched a new holiday tradition this week called “Get Your Tree On.” Forty merchants have joined forces to decorate Christmas trees and are inviting shoppers to vote on their favourite and enter into a draw for one of two amazing gift baskets. Each store has contributed either a gift certificate or product from their store towards the gift baskets, making each basket worth just over $1000…definitely making it worth while to head over to Main Street this week and to vote for your favourite tree (Bohemia’s of course).
Shoppers can vote either online at www.shopmain.ca or at a ballot box located at Re-Entry Espresso (4363 Main). Voting will be open until December 12th at 12 noon. Flyers with a list of all the tree sites, and a ballot, are available at each of the participating stores. The draw will be held at 2pm on December 12th at Once a Huckleberry Bush (4387 Main Street) along with a performance by the Vancouver Children’s Choir.
There will also be food boxes in each of the participating stores collecting donations for the food banks at St. Michael’s Church on Broadway.
