The Socks For Bubbly campaign is back for the 5th year in a row in Montreal ! From November 19 to 25, drop a pair of new socks at any of the participating restaurants and receive a complimentary glass of bubbly. This year, 18 Montreal restaurants and 14 Toronto restaurants will participate in the campaign, which aims to raise new socks for the homeless.
If you were planning on visiting any of these restaurants next week, don’t forget to bring a pair of new socks with you. Your donation will contribute to a great cause and you will also be able to enjoy a nice glass of bubbly with your meal*.
Participating restaurants include:
Caffe Un Po’ DiPu, Elena, Foxy, Luciano Trattoria, Marconi, Monkland Tavern, Nora Gray, Pastaga, Pizzeria Gema, Pizzeria Melrose, Santa Barbara, Restaurant Su, Tavern on the Square, Tommy Café + Apéro, Tommy St-Paul, Tuck Shop, Vin Mon Lapin, and Restaurant Gus are the 18 Montreal restaurants working together to raise awareness of the health of homeless feet in the city.
The Socks for Bubbly campaign is working with Montreal’s Old Brewery Mission, which have agreed to distribute the socks efficiently. They are performing invaluable work with our cities’ homeless youth and marginalized population and will make sure each pair of socks find fitting feet.
*It is one glass per person, though additional donations of socks are welcome!
