The Sleighing Hunger Annual Charity Concert announced the 2022 beneficiaries Wednesday afternoon.

The fundraising concert, on Friday, December 23rd at 8:00pm at The Colosseum, will benefit 16 local food banks by once again partnering with Windsor-Essex Food Bank Association (WEFBA) and Chatham Outreach for Hunger (COH).

The WEFBA is a community based not-for-profit organization comprised of 15 local food banks. Collectively they enhance their ability to reach thousands of individuals and families in Windsor and Essex County who need emergency food supplies. Thanks to the association, in 2021, they provided access to nearly 160,000 people in need locally. The foodbanks include UHC – Hub of Opportunities, Downtown Mission, Drouillard Place, Community Food Pantry Lakeshore, three Salvation Army locations, Welcome Centre Shelter for Women, Windsor Homes Coalition, and more.

Chatham Outreach for Hunger (COH) is a non-profit charitable organization servicing the Chatham-Kent region. Supported entirely through the generosity of the community, in 2021, they served over 5,400 households, providing nutritious meals for those in crisis.

“On behalf of Caesars Windsor Cares and the entertainment team, we are incredibly proud to collaborate with St. Clair College and The S’Aints on the Sleighing Hunger concert once again,” said Kevin Laforet, President Caesars Windsor.

This is the return of The S’Aints, St. Clair College, and Caesars Windsor partnering to raise funds through the holiday concert. With 100% of the ticket sales proceeds going back to the community, they have successfully raised over $340,000 to feed those in need since 2013.

Tickets are only $30 Canadian + applicable taxes and are on sale now. Ticket purchases can be made through caesarswindsor.com or ticketmaster.ca. The Box Office is open Saturday & Sunday from Noon to 8:00pm and on Show Days from Noon to 10:00pm. Tickets are also available at St. Clair College campuses and Devonshire Mall Guest Services.
