Every year the Bells on Bay St. ring, this year at the Fairmont Royal York.  It is a lovely event that allows attendees share the spirit of Christmas. The event was a lovely breakfast event with live music, excellent meal and even a fruit tray to represent a train track to match the theme of the event.

Bells on Bay St. was created out of a desire Intriciti had to share the spirit of Christmas with business leaders.  The idea was birthed to Alana in the early days of her ministry as she struggled with the “market bells” dominating Bay St.  She coined the phrase “Bells on Bay St.” for each of us (including herself) to be mindful of the “church bells” in the midst of the hustle and bustle at Christmas.

This year, Intriciti expanded this signature event to Ottawa with the inaugural “Bells on Bank St.” to over a few  hundred people.
