From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Sleep Cheap Charities Reap committee is now taking applications from local charities interested in receiving donations from funds generated from the annual event.
Eligibility requirements and application forms are available on the city’s website at www.niagarafalls.ca. The application deadline is Nov. 6.
As in past years, 50 per cent of funds raised from the 2009 Sleep Cheap event will benefit the Niagara Community Foundation while the other half of the funds will be split amongst charities selected by the committee.
Last year, 25 hotels helped to raise $180,000 in four days. Some of last year’s recipients were the Alzheimer’s Society of Niagara Region, Goodwill Niagara and the Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre.
A list of this year’s participating hotels will be released in the near future.
Room rates for this year will be $35 per night for a standard room, $45 for a fallsview room and $85 for a room with access to a water park.
