“We have a really great following for this event, with numerous racing teams that return annually,” said Katie Cuviello, fundraising coordinator at Project SHARE.

A team from Chippawa Presbyterian Church was the top finisher last year and the church has also been the top fundraiser for the past eight years.

From Bullet News Niagara:

Thanks to the committed efforts of participating Niagara Falls hotels and attractions, this year’s Sleep Cheap event raised $126,250 to benefit local charitable groups.

This total amount raised for charity over the past eleven years now totals $1,442,825.

Community support for the event is unparalleled – everybody wins in this fundraiser. Niagara Region residents get the chance to take a break and stay overnight in some of our most luxurious hotels; hoteliers have the opportunity to give back to the community while sharing with the locals the awesome accommodations they have to offer and most importantly, local charities put the proceeds to work in our community.

Niagara Falls invaded by cheerleaders and dancers

From the Welland Tribune:

There was plenty to cheer about in Niagara Falls on the weekend – not only inside the Scotiabank Convention Centre during the Canadian National Cheer & Dance Championships – but across the city where restaurants and hotels were booked to capacity.

“We had over 86 athletes with our five teams and they all came along with parents, grandparents and other spectators who came to watch and most of them stayed overnight or a full weekend,” said Jasmine Tessier, a coach with Thunder Cheerleading from Mississauga.

“Niagara Falls is always lots of fun for the girls. Many of them hit Clifton Hill and some were going to the Butterfly Conservatory,” said Tessier. “Not only is it a good event, we like the way things are run and the kids really get the full experience because they have the theatre, the arena and the ballroom.”
