For immediate release: November 13, 2019
Windsor, ON – Today in Cosmos Lounge, during an acoustic sneak peek performance by The S’Aints, community partners St. Clair College and Caesars Windsor announced the 2019 Sleighing Hunger’s beneficiaries.
The fundraising concert, on Friday, December 20 at 8 pm at The Colosseum, will benefit 16 local foodbanks once again in partnership with Windsor-Essex Food Bank Association (WEFBA) and Chatham Outreach for Hunger (COH).
The WEFBA is a community based not for profit organization comprised of 15 local food banks. Collectively they enhance their ability to reach thousands of individuals and families in Windsor and Essex County who need emergency food supplies. Thanks to the association, in 2018 they provided access to nearly 128,000 people in need locally. The foodbanks include Downtown Mission, Drouillard Place, Community Food Pantry Lakeshore, three Salvation Army locations, Unemployed Help Centre, The Well-Come Centre, Windsor Homes Coalition and more.
Chatham Outreach for Hunger (COH) is a non-profit charitable organization servicing the Chatham-Kent region. Supported entirely through the generosity of the community, in 2017 they served over 3,800 households, providing nutritious meals for those in crisis.
“On behalf of Caesars Windsor Cares and the entertainment team, we are incredibly proud to collaborate with St. Clair College and The S’Aints on the Sleighing Hunger concert once again,” said Tim Trombley, Director of Entertainment, Caesars Windsor.
This is the 6th year The S’Aints, St. Clair College and Caesars Windsor have partnered to raise funds through the holiday concert. With 100% of the ticket sales proceeds going back to the community, they have successfully raised over $250,000 to feed those in need since 2013.
“St. Clair College is happy to once again join forces with Windsor’s favourite charitable musical group, The S’Aints, to help support food banks in Windsor and Essex County,” St. Clair President Patti France said. “This unique holiday concert, with so many talented musicians from across our region, serves to inspire us both musically and philanthropically.”
A big thank you to this year’s media sponsors: AM800 Bell Media, Devonshire Mall and The Windsor Star. Stay tuned for an exciting sneak peek event in the community before the December 20 show date at Devonshire Mall.
