Be a part of history by shopping (60010 Shops The Ride!)

Mia Sorella and over 25 merchants around Barrington will be supporting The Ride for 3 Reasons through an exciting event- 60010 Shops the Ride!

THE RIDE IS ON! Bob Lee has embarked on the last leg of his historic bike ride and his goal is a big one.... to raise ONE MILLION dollars for 3 very important causes: Cancer, ALS, and Hospice. Bob is making a huge sacrifice- leaving friends and family, the comforts of home and his warm bed, not to mention the joy of clean laundry every morning- to ride over 2,000 miles just to give back.

This has made such an impression on us that we, from our little corner of Cook and Main, want to help out. We can't sacrifice like Bob has done, but we can help support him! And so can you. No need to battle weather, hills, blisters, hunger, and home sickness like Bob.... we are making it easy on you. Just come out and shop (or eat!).

We have teamed up with over 25 other fantastic Barrington merchants for 24 hours of support- 60010 Shops the Ride! All you need to do is head over to the Village between 6 PM Thursday October 4th and 6 PM Friday October 5th, visit any or all these merchants, mention the Ride, and make a purchase. Each location will be donating between 10-20% from these purchases back to The Ride for 3 Reasons.

Participating merchants include Mia Sorella, Urban Flair, Acacia Organics, Angelina, Notice, Grassroots, McGonigal's Pub, Bravura Home & Gift Shop, Re-De-Find, Heads Up Apparel, Vintage Faire, McConnell Photography, Fancy Art NFP, Tommy Terri, Savvy Spirit, G Whiz, Norton's USA, Kate Marker Interiors, Pink Geranium, Laura B Salon, Barrington Running Co, Transformotion, Kookers, Cooper's of Barrington, Sweet Spot, Savory Salads, Subway, and Paul's Burrito Express (for more specific info visit www.enjoybarrington.com).

SO not only do you get to enjoy the best Barrington has to offer, you get a chance to be a part of something much bigger- The Ride for 3 Reasons. Let's give Bob a lift, help him finish strong, and bring him one step closer to the amazing goal of ONE MILLION dollars for 3 Reasons! Want a few more reasons to make Mia Sorella one of your stops? We will be serving some fantastic wines provided by McGonigal's Pub and delicious desserts provided by Moe Bakes on Thursday night. Not to mention give aways including our amazing Revitalizing Facial ($75 value), a full set of Eyelash Extensions ($225 value), and a swag bag filled with a few of our favorite fall things! Can't wait to see you there as you shop THE RIDE!
