About this project

Can you help us with our RENO for RAPIDS campaign?

It is an opportunity to support and elevate young athletes at a high level as well as help us represent Canada. The Niagara Rapids are proven winners and have earned their place to compete with North Americas best volleyball players. This is a wonderful life event for these young men.

Project Impact

Use of project funds
The flight, hotel and food costs will run approximately $1,000 per person. We have 14 players, 14 parents s well as the coach and assistant coach.
Project milestones
We will be hosting a number of events over the next few months. Our premier event will be a Wine and Chocolate pairing at Caroline Cellars who are a local winery in Niagara on the Lake. There are 4 days (March 2, 24, April 13 and 14) where Caroline Cellars is donating their facilities to help us reach our goal. We will be selling tickets; 2 for $25 or $15 each.

Each session will be half an hour in length with a maximum of 60 people. It includes a tasting of 4 wines (1 White, 1 Dry Rose, 1 Red and 1 Ice Wine) paired with 3 chocolates. The chocolate is good quality made specifically for pairing with wine. Customers will get to sample 3; 1 milk, 1 dark and 1 white.

We recently competed in a tournament in Rochester, New York. There were 25 teams there including top ranked teams from the US. We defeated the second ranked team in the US to earn a spot in the US Nationals in Reno, Nevada, June 30 to July 3, 2013. We are the only Canadian team for our age group.
