The Pine Avenue Redevelopment Project, LiveNF and the Aquarium of Niagara are hosting an awards ceremony and “cash mob” to recognize the ongoing commitment of Niagara Falls business owners and community members to the continued revitalization of Niagara Falls.

The free event also seeks to promote ongoing efforts to improve City Market operations and establish the market as a destination for healthy, local food options.

It will take place at 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, at the Niagara Falls City Market, 779 E. Market St.

Representatives from the Pine Avenue Redevelopment Project will present awards to local business owners Linda and Mark Milanovich of George’s Appliance Inc., and Ghandi Jourdi of Master Khechen’s Martial Arts Academy.

The “cash mob” will be hosted by LiveNF in support of the Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan.

A “cash mob” is an event where a group of people meet somewhere at a specific time with the intent to spend money and drive support for shopping local.

Also planned are martial arts demonstrations and an appearance by Khechen, founder of Master Khechen’s Martial Arts Academy; and an Aquarium of Niagara ambassador turtle presentation.
