Boston Pizza Kick Off Party 2023

Wow, hard to believe. Only last year my brother and I created Niagara Youth Need Sports. I couldn't think of a better birthday gift for my big brother than to help him start this non-profit. The goal was to direct 100% of funds towards eradicating financial barriers for youth sports. Now, after two successful JKR tournaments and over $32,000 raised, and so many amazing kids now equipped and able to play the sports they love through the generosity of individuals and businesses across Niagara, we are happy to announce our recent partnership with Boston Pizza. To kick things off for the 3rd annual JKR tournament and celebrate a bright future for organized youth sports, we are cordially inviting you to our launch event Friday, August 25th at 8:00pm Boston Pizza on Ontario Street. This event will feature the top DJs of Niagara, and the release of a custom drink guaranteed to inspire over the shoulder shots top cheddar with your woody.


This past weekend, the “WNHL” (Wednesday Night Hockey League) hosted their annual charity game raising $2000 for a Niagara charity. This year they chose to support Niagara’s Youth by donating the funds to “NYNS.”


100% of the funds donated will directly support Niagara’s youth by providing them access to team sports through sponsorship, equipment, registration and unyielding mentorship.


A HUGH Shoutout to Brian Bazlooski and the boys for their support! Together we are making a difference!
