The S'Aints: Sleighing Hunger Once Again

 

2Saints2018

Story by George Sharpe
Photography by Gene Schilling

For the fifth consecutive year The S’Aints, a group of world-renowned local musicians, will once again offer the best of the Holiday Season. Each year the philanthropic super-group joins with St. Clair College to present a Holiday album and concert to raise money to feed the hungry. All proceeds from both CD sales as well as the concert remain locally.
   The group consists of very well know musicians. Jody Raffoul, lead vocalist, is joined by drummer Jeff Burrows, Wes Buckley, Kelly “Mr. Chill” Hoppe, David Cyrenne, Kelly Authier, Marty Bak, Liz Robinson and Stephanie Baker. The group is also joined in concert by ‘The Sinners’ choir and the ‘The Horns of Dilemma’. and ‘The Twisted Sisters’. The Twisted Sisters are now Liz and Stephanie who are part of the band so this can be removed.
  The concert, set for December 21 at The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor, will be an upbeat electrifying evening including rock edge Holiday tunes such as “Last Christmas” , “Run Run Rudolph” and so much more. This year the concert and CD sales will benefit 16 local food banks in Windsor/Essex and Chatham/Kent.
   June Muir, Executive Director of the Unemployed Help Centre, said, “The Windsor Essex Food Bank Association (WEFBA) relies on the generosity of the community and partners like Caesars Windsor and St. Clair College in order to raise funds for those in need in the area. It’s so wonderful to know that all the proceeds raised from the S’Aints Sleighing Hunger concert will stay local and help our food banks continue to feed our most vulnerable friends and neighbours during the Christmas season and beyond.” WEFBA provided access to nearly 128,000 local people in need of assistance. Brenda LeClair, Executive Director of Chatham Outreach for Hunger (COH), said, “We are grateful to all involved for making this happen. Your support is feeding families and together we are making a difference.” Last year COH served over 3,800 households, providing nutritious meals for those in crisis.

The S’Aints, St. Clair College and Caesars Windsor have partnered to raise nearly $200,000 to feed those in need since 2013. 100% of the ticket proceeds goes directly to the communities.
   Patti France, St Clair College President, said, “The S’Aints show has become one of the area’s most popular Holiday traditions, providing essential funding to local food banks and spurring awareness of the year-round dilemma of hunger in our midst. St. Clair’s students and staff are always pleased to be engaged with our community - and never more so than in the case of this cause.”
   Tickets for this year’s all ages concert are just $25 plus tax and are on sale now at all St. Clair College campuses, Devonshire Mall Guest Services, the Caesars Windsor box office as well as ticketmaster.ca.
   For those looking for a great stocking stuffer this Holiday Season the 2018 S’Aints Holiday CD – “Love is the Answer” - is available at www.SleighingHunger.com and will be available at various retails outlets throughout the holiday season.

  • Bright Lights Windsor Prepares For Its Grand Unveiling

    1BriteLites-advertise-thumb-pic

    Bright Lights Windsor will be radiating at full power this holiday season, advancing the City’s original vision for the spectacular festival that transforms Jackson Park into a winter land of enchantment. While the inaugural Bright Lights Windsor impressed the thousands of people who bundled up to see it in 2017, the features have expanded in nearly every way. The area of the park that will light up the night sky is triple the size of last year. The number of displays has more than quadrupled. Over 200 trees will be illuminated. All of it is linked by two kilometres of trails lined with thousands of lights.

MadetoShadeAdvertising Testimonial

Windsor Life has been an integral part of our advertising budget from day one. Here at Made to Shade we have had great success with advertising in a magazine that reaches all of Windsor Essex County. We always ask our new clients how they have heard of us and 9 times out of 10 it is... “We saw your ad in Windsor Life.” We appreciate all the attention and care that goes into every ad and article. It is that attention to detail that gives us an immediate response of increased phone calls with every release of a Windsor Life issue. It is by far our best form of advertising. All of us at Made to Shade would like to thank everyone at Windsor Life Magazine for the expertise and professionalism that goes along with all the ads and articles. Windsor Life Magazine is a very successful publication that is put together by a very talented group of people. We look forward to working together for many, many more years. Thank you!
