Spreading cheer for volunteers, food bank clients, and the community, the S’Aints band performed a sneak peek acoustic set today at the UHC – Hub of Opportunities, along with event sponsors St. Clair College and Caesars Windsor Cares.

The fundraising concert, on Friday, December 22 at 8pm 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 2022, they provided food bank access to 190,000 people battling hunger 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 5,442 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 Susanne Tomkins, Manager, PR & Communications, Caesars Windsor.

This annual concert brings together The S’Aints, St. Clair College, and Caesars Windsor Cares to partner in raising funds through the holiday concert. With 100% of the ticket sales proceeds going back to the community, they have successfully raised over $442,534 to feed those in need since 2013.

“While the concert includes St. Nick, St. Clair College and The S'Aints, the true saints of the event are the audience members who have made it into one of our region's most popular Christmas entertainment events," said St. Clair College President Patti France. "By supporting the show and CD sales, they've provided over $400,000 in assistance to local food banks during the past decade.  It's been the College's privilege to have been a partner in that community effort since the concert's inception."
