Roving fundraiser benefits Downtown Niagara Falls Business Association
The Downtown Niagara Falls Business Association (DNFBA) presents its first "Santa Con" roving fundraiser, from 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15. Santa Con will begin at the Anchor Bar Niagara Falls (located inside the Holiday Inn Hotel - 114 Buffalo Ave.) and visit four other DNFBA member restaurants and bars.
Guests aged 21 and over are encouraged to wear their most festive Santa hats, ugly sweaters and holiday-themed costumes, and join in the fun at any point in the evening.
Admission will be collected at any of the participating bars for $5 each. Proper ID is required to participate. There is no preregistration.
The $5 admission price allows participants free parking at the Anchor Bar, entry in the costume contest, the ability to purchase raffle tickets, food and drink specials, and the ability to ride the Discover Niagara Shuttle from location to location that evening.
In addition to the Anchor Bar, guests will visit Hard Rock Cafe, Niagara Falls USA; the Rainforest Café; and The Craft Kitchen and Bar. It will land at Chill 443 (located inside the Wyndham Garden Hotel - 443 Main St.) for the evening's final festivities, hosted by Premier Sound DJs. Each location will have food and drink specials available.
Guests will be able to enter various "Santa Con" raffles for prizes from participating locations. One guest will also be chosen for the Best Costume Prize, consisting of an overnight stay at the Giacomo Hotel and dinner for two at Chill 443. Guests must be present to win prizes.
"We hope to attract frequent guests of our area and others that may not be familiar with the downtown Niagara Falls landscape, especially during the final evening of Jingle Falls USA festivities," said Chris MacKendrick, DNFBA chairperson. "We encourage everyone 21 and over to have fun and drink responsibly."
To that end, various hotels are offering participants special overnight rates that evening: the Holiday Inn (716-285-2521), the Giacomo Hotel (716-299-0200), Quality Hotel & Suites (716-282-1212), and the Wyndham Garden Hotel (716-284-8801). Mention "DNFBA Santa Con" when booking.
The DNFBA is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is "to stimulate, enhance and nurture an inviting atmosphere for civic, cultural, social and economic activities in downtown Niagara Falls, NY." Admission and raffle proceeds benefit the DNFBA.
