Released: December 15, 2016


St. Catharines, ON – Today, the Niagara River Lions welcomed Roberto’s Pizza Passion, another business from Niagara’s restaurant industry, to their growing list of community supporters.

Roberto’s Pizza Passion is truly one of Niagara’s gems – Roberto, Nadia, Mama Vilma and their team of pizza champions have been cooking for Niagara’s citizens for quite some time, and they have much to show for it in both personal accolades and community reputation. But they’re not just making pizza - Roberto’s Pizza Passion is home to a menu fit for a king!

Owner and Head Chef, Roberto Vergalito, had this to say about his new found partnership with the River Lions organization. “Nothing is more important than family and community. The Pizza Dude is proud to support our community and our beloved Niagara River Lions.”

The River Lions have been overwhelmed with the support from the corporate community over the off season, and leading into the team’s sophomore campaign. Josh Knoester, Manager of Corporate Partnership & Sales commented, “There are a ton of synergies between the restaurant industry and the professional sports world. Both types of organizations thrive off of community support, and hope to connect with those who call Niagara their home. It was this that brought our organizations together. It was our love for community and overall willingness to work to support our Region.”

The River Lions have been busy since the start of training camp on December 1st and are set to take on the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans at their Home Opener on December 27th
