Niagara on the Lake Shaw Festival

April 9 – October 16, 2016

One of our favourite events in Niagara-on-the-Lake is nearly here: The Shaw Festival. Running from April 9 to October 16, 2016, the festival features incredible theatre and is a great reason to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake as the weather gets warm.

This immensely popular festival is inspired by the works of George Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries. Each year, the plays are carefully chosen to best celebrate the works of other Shavian playwrights, writers whose work challenges the status quo in the same way that Shaw’s did.

Vintage Hotels Returns with Annual Tree of Hope Campaign

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON November 27, 2015 –The holiday season is not only a time for celebrating, but more importantly, a time for sharing. Throughout November and December, Vintage Hotels continues to honour its commitment to bettering the community and helping local families experience a truly joyful holiday season with the annual ‘Tree of Hope’ toy drive.
This year the Vintage Hotels properties will be participating in the ‘Tree of Hope’ campaign. Each property has chosen a local charity to collect donations for.

For those who are able to give a little more during the holidays, an unwrapped gift can be purchased for one of the names displayed on the tree.
A Local women’s shelter, Gillian’s Place is the recipient of the ‘Tree of Hope’ campaign at Queen’s Landing. Gillian’s Place offers hope to women and children by providing safety and support through a range of services and by working through effective partnerships with our community to end violence and abuse.

Big Brothers Big Sisters facilitates life-changing relationships that inspire and empower children and youth to reach their full potential, both as individuals and citizens.
Pillar and Post is honoured to work with Project SHARE this year to sponsor families living in poverty in the Niagara Falls community. Project SHARE’s mission is to address the short-term need for food and create long-term solutions for food security, mobilizing resources in our community, and adapting services to respond to changes around us.
