Party On The Patio – ELEVATE
Saturday September 8, 2018
The third and final fundraiser for the Fort Erie Centre for the Performing Arts was held this past Saturday. The night was a huge success thanks to the organizational efforts of Councillor Passero, Councillor Butler, Councillor Zanko and the numerous sponsors that made the night the place to be in Fort Erie!
Guests were greeted by four stilt walkers in the parking lot that led them into the Leisureplex, where tables were elegantly decorated and where performances by Paradisaea acrobatics put on an amazing show using silk that was hung from the ceiling. Food was provided by 335 on the Ridge and Billy Bones BBQ and included their famous ribs, chicken, salads and more!
The huge announcement that was made was in regards to the large ($500,000) donation that Meridian gave to the Centre for the Performing Arts and will now be referred to as the Meridian Centre for the Performing Arts, a huge donation that will ensure that culture continues to thrive in Fort Erie! This announcement was followed by a spectacular fireworks display.
