Big Brothers Big Sisters North Simcoe is bringing back its signature event Showcase of Homes Tour.

After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the organization says the community's support this year is critical as its needs have continued to grow over the last two years, now supporting over 200 youth in North Simcoe.

The event will be happening on Saturday, October 1st from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. There will be six homes showcased this year in Tiny, Midland and Penetanguishene.

Tickets are $50 and are available for purchase at four locations: the Big Brothers Big Sisters North Simcoe office, Saturday Afternoons, Café Kittyhawk and RE/MAX Georgian Bay Realty(King Street Location).

This year instead of a luncheon, there will be $10 lunch vouchers included with each ticket. The lunch vouchers will be valid at Dino's Fresh Food Deli, Uncle Jimmy’s Family Restaurant, The Dock Lunch, Cheeky Mama Bakery & Café, Café Kittyhawk, and Wendy B’s Fine Foods. Lunch vouchers will be valid until October 15.

Money raised from this, and all of Big Brothers Big Sisters North Simcoe’s events, stay local in North Simcoe, and support youth mentoring programs including the 1:1, group, and school-based programs.

“These mentoring opportunities help ignite the power and potential in youth across North Simcoe to help build and strengthen the youth that are the future,” the agency says. “By focusing on the developmental relationship of each child we are able to provide volunteer mentors to help achieve personal growth and spark the potential of every youth we serve.”

For more information on tickets please contact the Big Brothers Big Sisters North Simcoe Office at (705) 526-5051 or stop by the office at 366 Midland Ave.
