Upcoming community events:

|Desiree’s Ride – September 9, 2017 – Desiree’s Angels Victims for a New Start – The Ride for Desiree Gallagher was started in 2014 as a way to bring awareness to victims of crime, and raise funds for Desiree who was a victim herself which changed her life forever. This year’s motorcycle ride in Niagara Falls (one of three locations) will raise funds for Women’s Place and Victim Services.|
|8th Annual John-Micheal Martin Memorial Golf Tournament- September 10, 2017 (Whisky Run Golf Club) – This event honours the memory of an amazing École secondaire catholique Jean-Vanier student who dedicated many hours to raising funds for Women’s Place through his school’s annual fundraising walk.
