A Message From Mayor Jim Diodati
I’m humbled and honoured to be a part of what has become an incredible charity event in Niagara Falls! The Roast was a phenomenal example of what can happen when people in our community come together to make a difference!
You are generous. You are giving. You make our community great!
Thank you for making this not only an exciting night full of fun and laughter, but also a meaningful opportunity to give back to those in need. Together we raised an outstanding $85,000 for Niagara Falls Community Outreach. What I will remember most about my 50th birthday is the amazing generosity of the people of Niagara Falls and beyond.
Thank you for your giving spirit and making this an unforgettable milestone night for Niagara Falls!
This event would not have been made possible without the generous support of our community sponsors:
