2nd Annual “Brides for Food Banks”
A Food Drive in Support of Community Care for St. Catharines & Thorold
at the 7th Niagara Autumn Wedding Show 2010
Sunday October 3rd, 2010 – The Quality Parkway Hotel & Convention Centre, St. Catharines
To get local couples wedding planning starting their marriage on a truly altruistic track, the Niagara Autumn Wedding Show 2010 is running the 2nd Annual Wedding show food drive (Brides for Banks) in support of Community Care for St. Catharines/Thorold. We hope to raise over 1,000 canned goods for the families and children in the Niagara region.
So we ask everyone attending this year’s show, to raid their pantries or head over to their local grocer and bring as many non-perishable food donations as they can to the wedding show at The Quality Parkway Hotel & Convention Centre on Sunday October 3rd, 2010. 12noon-5pm. Even if they can’t stay for the show, we still welcome any donations at the door!
WHY? We encourage brides and grooms to incorporate the causes and charities that they are passionate about or would like to become passionate about in their wedding planning because it is a simple way to make their wedding a rewarding, positive experience that truly represents who they are as a couple. It also allows their wedding to leave a memorable impact on their community and world…not just pretty pic in their photo album!
In addition, Fall kicks off the holiday seasons, where many of us have the privilege of sitting down with family and friends to a succession of amazing holiday feasts. Not all families are as a lucky. In fact, food banks are at an all time low supply of food across the Golden Horseshoe. We want to lend a helping hand to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to not only enjoy in the holiday season, but to have food on their plates each and everyday.
