Mayor Maloney to Stomp Grapes for Port Cares

Posted by Nancy Giles on Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Sept. 1, 2015 – As host of the 42nd annual JCI St. Catharines’ Mayor’s Invitational Grape Stomp, Mayor Walter Sendzik has challenged Niagara’s Mayors to support local charities and help “stomp out poverty” at this year’s Grape Stomp.


Partnering with Grape Growers of Ontario, JCI St. Catharines and Skycomp Solutions, Niagara’s Mayors will be working together to raise awareness about poverty and support local food banks by collecting non-perishable food items between Sept. 1 and 18. Members of the public are encouraged to donate in their community.


Then on Saturday, Sept. 19 at 12 p.m. at Montebello Park in downtown St. Catharines, the Mayors will take to the grape barrels for the traditional stomping of the grapes and compete to make the most grape juice. The volume of the stomped grape juice plus the total volume of donations will determine the winner of this year’s Mayor’s Grape Stomp.


Everyone is welcome to participate in the challenge and help stomp out poverty and hunger in Niagara. Get the latest updates from the Mayors by following @stomppoverty on Twitter and come out for the competition on Grape Stomp day. Grape stomping heats will include teams from the Grape Growers, emergency services and more.


Help Mayor Maloney stomp out poverty by dropping off donations for the Mayors’ Grape Stomp at:

Mayor John Maloney, Port Colborne supporting Port Cares
Donations accepted at Port Colborne City Hall, 66 Charlotte St., Port Colborne
Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
