Indiana Jones Movie Night
On Saturday Aug 11th Night, Sweetery will be hosting its very own movie night right on the lawns of David Pecaut Square! Grab your comfy clothes and your favourite sweet from our very own vendors and enjoy this year’s block-buster franchise. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is a 1989 American action-adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg, from a story co-written by executive producer George Lucas. It is the third installment in the Indiana Jones franchise. Harrison Ford reprises the title role and Sean Connery plays Indiana’s father, Henry Jones, Sr. Other cast members featured include Alison Doody, Denholm Elliott, Julian Glover, River Phoenix, and John Rhys-Davies. In the film, set largely in 1938, Indiana searches for his father, a Holy Grail scholar, who has been kidnapped by Nazis.
The movie will start at 9:00pm with weather permitting.
Benefiting the Second Harvest Community Charity
Sweetery is very excited to be partnering with Second Harvest as our official community sponsor this year. Second Harvest is the largest food rescue program in Canada. Since 1985, Second Harvest has been picking up donated, surplus food, which would otherwise go to waste, and delivering that food to over 220 social service community agencies in Toronto.
Promoting local communities has been our utmost priority in not only supporting our local eateries but also giving back to our local charities. This summer, Sweetery will be hosting six activity tents in which participants will get a chance to compete in a series of sweet related games by giving a donation that will solely benefit Second Harvest. The winner of these games which include a candy test, gumball shake, rocket tower and a pixie stick drop, will win a “sweet” prize. Be sure to stop by these fun-filled interactive tents with your friends and family to get a shot at winning some prizes while also helping your local charity!Learn More
