It is with great pride that the Danforth Board of Directors announces that our BIA won two awards at the annual TABIA (Toronto Association of BIAs) Recognition Dinner held on December 1, 2015.
We congratulate our Board Vice Chair Jennifer Jones (owner of the Joy of Dance Studio), the 2015 recipient of the Advocacy Award. We nominated Jennifer for this particular award in recognition of her numerous years of unwavering work to ensure that the lighting plan for the Bloor Viaduct Bridge became a reality.
The second award was a wonderful surprise. The Danforth BIA was honored with the 2015 Event Award for this year's edition of Thrill of the Grill. Thrill is our BIA's signature event and this past year it garnered tremendous consumer support, generated over 13 million marketing and media impressions for our area, and turned a profit which went back into our BIA savings account. We congratulate our amazing volunteer Organizing Committee; and we congratulate and thank our BIA businesses who participated this year: Allen's, Factory Girl, The Combine Eatery, Globe Bistro, Das Gasthaus, Tapas at Embrujo and The Meat Department. Without your delicious contributions there would be no "Thrill" in our "Grill"!
