Pokemon Go – Downtown STC


Pokemon Go – Downtown St.Catharines is for the benefit of Start Me Up Niagara and the Niagara Region Helping Green ELFS. This event is non-profit and free for all who participate.

Starting at 1pm on August 21st eager Pokemon Trainers will meet Valerie Chalmers and Pikachu to pick up their time sheets and custom buttons made to commemorate the event. There will be two lures going off simultaneously throughout the downtown area  The first lures will go off at 1:15pm, they will go off every twenty minutes until 2:55 pm. Four of the PokeStops are donation stations where participants are encouraged adorn their team colours and donate loose change.

This event has gained attention city wide with close to three hundred people expected to participate. It would not have been possible without the generous local businesses who offered to sponsor the event and cover some of the costs. Funding money was used to print time sheets, buttons and a few surprises that will be at the donation stations. All leftover funds are being donated.
