Summer Pop Up Mercado in support of BVO

Summer Pop Up Mercado in support of BVO

You might remember Duncan Armstrong, a 17 year old skier from Georgian Peaks, previously ran the BVO Challenge in 2020 and the BVO Used Ski Sale in 2021, raising over $30k for the BVO. This year, with ski teammate Tristan Leightell, Duncan is fundraising for the BVO July 23rd from 1-5pm at the Summer Pop Up Mercado in Gibraltar at 569123 Sixth Side Road (the Leightell Farm) and hoping to raise thousands for the BVO once again.

The two boys will be selling curated items from the BVO Treasure Shop as well as other donated items from local vendors, selling food and drinks, running a 50/50 draw, spreading awareness of the BVO and soliciting donations. They also hope to have a dunk tank to entertain the kids while parents shop!  Some vendors have committed to donate a portion of their sales to the BVO as well.

The Summer Mercado, a brainchild of eco-artisan and entrepreneur Karen Leightell, hosts unique vendors who all follow a locally made or business with a cause ethos - beautiful handmade Mochila bags made by the Wayuu women of Columbia, eco interiors, vintage furnishings, photography, local pottery and wood home accessories, as well as women owned clothing, jewelry and skincare lines that are based in the Grey/Bruce/Simcoe area. Plus, there will be local food vendors from the farms in the Gibraltar neighbourhood, only a 15 minute drive from Collingwood! See the attached flyers! The sale is from 1-5pm on Saturday July 23rd.
