River Lions and Travelodge Bonaventure Team up to Host Greek Heritage Night

Released: March 16, 2017


The River Lions announce that they will be teaming up with Travelodge Bonaventure (Niagara Falls) in hosting Greek Night at the Meridian Centre on March 23rd

This is truly shaping up to be an event filled with culturally relevant entertainment on and off the hardcourt. During half-time, the Greek Community of Niagara (GCN) will perform a traditional Zorba dance, which is sure to entertain and educate the River Lions faithful. The night will be highlighted by Greek-themed player jerseys, worn by the entire River Lions squad! 

The entire River Lions organization is excited by the prospect of welcoming the GCN to the Meridian Centre. “During the off season, we try to be involved in as many festivals and events as possible, and this past summer we were fortunate to be part of the Niagara Greek Festival,” said Public Relations Manager, Michelle Biskup. “We continued to strengthen this partnership leading up to the season, and realized that with the large Greek community in Niagara, we wanted a way to celebrate their heritage!”

River Lions fans will be pleased to know that the game is presented by Travelodge Bonaventure in Niagara Falls, “We’re excited to welcome the Greek community of Niagara, which is widely known and respected. Partnering with Travelodge Bonaventure will only add to the event and make it as exciting as possible” said Manager of Corporate Partnerships & Sales, Josh Knoester. “This is different than any other promotional game we’ve done so far, so we are really looking forward to seeing it come together.”

Greek Heritage Night is sure to be one of the most unique and exciting River Lions home games to-date. The Franchise invites you to join them as they look to continue their winning streak over the Titans for a night filled with family-friendly entertainment!
