On February 7th ,2014 teams from all over the Niagara Region gathered to play ball hockey in St. Catharines for Raising the Roof to promote awareness on the plight of the many individuals facing homelessness in our communities. Although they did not win any of their games, the team representing Port Cares had a great time. Funds raised by the Region during this event will be distributed to Port Cares, Community Care, The Hope Centre, Project Share and Grimsby Affordable Housing Partnership.
