Sleep Cheap charity nears $1-million mark
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Ten local charities that are being helped this year from the Sleep Cheap Charities Reap fundraiser will be using their money for everything from funding new equipment at the Boys & Girls Club to upgrades to kitchen facilities at the Niagara Falls Community Outreach.
This year’s event generated $120,444.98, bringing the total amount raised in seven years to just over $830,000.
Mayor Jim Diodati, who has been the driving force behind the event, said members of the committee who have been working on this project are quite excited because they are closing in on the $1-million mark.
“Our goal will be to hit it next season. We have already started on coming up with some creative ideas so that we can add some elements of excitement so that we can hit the big mark.”
