TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - The Baby Point Gates BIA invites everyone to get into the holiday spirit at their 5th Annual Baby it's Cold Outside Holiday Open House and Charity Soup Festival set for Saturday, November 19, 2016, during retail shopping hours.
The Baby Point Gates' merchants delight in decorating their stores for the holiday season and offering special sales. Families are sure to enjoy the entertainment lined up for the day, which includes a small animal petting zoo, string quartet, carolers singing traditional holiday songs, as well as Scrooge and Santa Claus strolling throughout the shopping district ready to visit with all!
The Charity Soup Festival is a new addition to the traditional Baby it's Cold Outside Holiday Open House festivities. For a suggested $2.00 donation, visitors can sample a delicious cup of soup from the many participating restaurants and merchants in the Baby Point Gates culinary corridor, centered at the corner of Jane St and Annette St, just a 5 minute walk north of Bloor St West in Toronto's west end.
All donations raised from the charity soup festival go to support the Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund which distributes gifts during the holiday season, to families with limited means.
There will be a terrific assortment of yummy, homemade soups including a Smoked Pork Minestrone provided by Campo Restaurant, and a silky Butternut Squash Soup served by Queen Margherita Pizza, to name a few.
"We live and work in a wonderful neighborhood so the Charity Soup Festival is a terrific way to give back to the community and support those in need", states Lena Burek, Baby Point Gates Marketing Volunteer. "Our winter festival is always a lot of fun for the whole family, and with the added flavours of soup it should have something for everyone!"
