Muskoka Lakes Bracelets is committed to helping fund local organizations that are in need. This year, 2021, we have chosen to support Muskoka Lakes Township Fire Station 5, located in Minett.
Volunteer firefighters are prepared to respond 24 hours per day but due to COVID-19, The Fire Association was unable to host their local events which raise funds to purchase necessary equipment. The donation from Muskoka Lakes Bracelets will be used to acquire new equipment and other supplies needed to keep our lakes safe.
Long-time Muskoka cottagers, Tamara Bahry and Amanda Petrovic launched Muskoka Lakes bracelets in 2019 and partnered with local support organizations and Salt Fine Jewelry, to collaborate on custom-designed bracelets aimed at bringing awareness to the significant impact of the flooding in the Muskoka region that year.
In 2019, limited-edition Muskoka Lakes Bracelets were launched to support the 2019 Flood Victims via Muskoka Victim Services.
In 2020, Muskoka Lakes Bracelets chose to support South Muskoka Hospital who had launched a COVID-19 Emergency Response.
“As a photographer, I’ve been able to capture many special moments in Muskoka. Creating art with purpose and being part of designing this bracelet, warms my heart. I love people, storytelling, and most importantly giving – and the local Muskoka community needs our help” said Tamara Bahry
“It’s the clear choice for us. Helping the local community is the only option. I feel blessed to revel in Muskoka’s beauty every summer. The local community is the heart of the region and they keep the community thriving. They are our neighbours and they wholeheartedly deserve our support” said Amanda Petrovic.
Supporters will be able to purchase a keepsake bracelet wrapped in silk in the shape of either Lake Muskoka, Lake Joseph or Lake Rosseau to cherish on their wrists. Supporters can choose to order their bracelet map in either silver or gold, add pavé, or even place a diamond signifying their favourite location on the lake.
