David Mirvish wishes to announce that plans are under way for a public celebration of the life of his father, Honest Ed Mirvish, who passed away on July 11, 2007. The public is invited to a free eight-hour-long celebration that will take place outside Honest Ed’s Retail Emporium at 581 Bloor Street West. The City of Toronto has been generous enough to grant a closure of Bloor Street between Bathurst and Markham Streets to accommodate the large turnout that is anticipated.
Ceremonies will begin at 11:30 am in the presence of Mayor David Miller, who will proclaim August 12, 2007 “Ed Mirvish Day” in the City of Toronto.
Following the ceremonies, there will be SEVEN HOURS OF LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AND SURPRISES. Refreshments will be served.
It will be a celebration that Ed Mirvish would have loved.
