De Luca Fine Foods Donates 50 Lasagnas. As a way to give back and thank the community De Luca Fine Foods gave away 50 lasagnas through Port Cares to families in need. Mario De Luca, president and CEO of De Luca Fine Foods, plans to make this an annual tradition.
Tis the season for giving. The Southern Tier Admirals Atom Major Hockey Team (10 year olds) decided that they would rather give their Christmas gifts to those who were needier. “Normally during our team’s Christmas Party, each player is given a gift. These boys dug deep in their hearts and felt that there was other children who might not be getting a present this Christmas, so they donated there’s” stated Head Coach Bryan Elliott. “The experience of purchasing the gifts and the experience of giving will live with these boys for the rest of their lives.”
Shown with Port Cares Executive Director Lynda Reinhart are players Jackson Duerden (Welland) and David Pinelli .
