Halloween Fun: KidSport fright night

KidSport Niagara raised some much-needed money at its annual Monster Bash Saturday night.

The party, now in its seventh year, was held at Willowbank with proceeds going to help kids from across Niagara “get off the sidelines and back in the game,” said Shari Hartwick.

The 120 attendees, dressed in costumes, danced to the rockin’ tunes of DJ Marinko and raised about $7,500.

Hartwick said events like this don’t happen without the help of many tireless volunteers and great sponsors. This year sponsors included 43 North Restaurant Group, Silversmith Brewing Company, Kully’s Original Sports Bar, Paddle Niagara, Reynolds Regier Homes, Sunnybrook Estate Winery, Reif Estate Winery, the Water Depot, Kinsmen Club of NOTL, Cosmo Condina Photography, Marie & Michel Lapointe, Suzanne & Todd Watson and Carol Perrin.

Perry and Shari Hartwick started KidSport Niagara in order to help remove the barriers preventing financially challenged children across Niagara from experiencing the many benefits of organized sport.
