Huge Thank You

Huge thanks to everyone who sponsored, set up, exhibited and participated in the 13th Annual Bow-Ties vs the World Show & Shine yesterday at Northgate Mall in Edmonton. The event was a gigantic success and we couldn't have done it without all of you. Stay tuned over the next couple weeks as photos, updates and other information come online. Congratulations to all of our contest winners (including the horrifying impressive 66 second showing it took for Don Cornish to devour an entire Blueberry Pie) and keep checking in to the site
