Media Advisory - Ryerson Students Bring Back the Holiday Magic in Downtown Yonge B.I.A Window Wonderland Competition

    TORONTO, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - The Downtown Yonge B.I.A is bringing back the
holiday magic and putting it on display for all to see. Torontonians can take
a stroll through the glittering streets of Downtown Yonge to see festive
window displays created by inspired Ted Rogers School of Retail Management
students at Ryerson University, who have been challenged to transform windows
to reflect the holiday magic theme on a budget of just $100. Windows will be
revealed Thursday, November 8th and will be showcased for the entire month of
November, giving shoppers and passersby enough time to choose their favourite
by logging onto to vote. An esteemed
judging panel will select the winning window display on Monday, December 3rd.
The first place winner and a guest will celebrate with a fun night out on the
town, including dinner and one night's stay at the Delta Chelsea Hotel. The
runner-up will receive a student necessity: cooking classes at Great Cooks on
Eight, and third place will receive a gift certificate to Coast Mountain
Sports. As a part of the Urban Lights, Festive Sights series, Window
Wonderland is a signature event launched in partnership with Downtown Yonge
business members.
