Are you looking for an exciting way to support your local businesses and give back to community in a unique way? GenNext’s 2021 event series – Take Home TBay – is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved and show your #LocalLove for community!

The GenNext Take Home TBay campaign has featured a variety of partnerships with various local businesses throughout 2021 to offer a product or experience that will engage and support our local community. Take Home TBay aims to support local businesses while simultaneously making an impact for a better tomorrow with a portion of all proceeds being donated back to the community through the United Way.

These experiences will happen every other month, and will range from a fun family/couple’s paint night where you can showcase your creativity with loved ones, a home cooking kit to prepare a delicious home cooked meal, and more!
