Lighthouse Festival donates $30,000 worth of tickets to community organizations.

Lighthouse Festival has wrapped up a donation campaign that saw $30,000 worth of complimentary tickets given to fellow non-profit and charitable organizations throughout the Norfolk County and Port Colborne area. 

“It’s been talked about to no end, but the fact remains that the pandemic was rough for so many in our community,” shares Lighthouse Artistic Director, Derek Ritschel. “Businesses, families, individuals, everybody. Lighthouse is fortunate that we have such a passionate and dedicated base of supporters that helped us navigate the past couple of years. And now that we’re looking at our first full season at the theatre in over 30 months, we wanted to support the communities that show us so much support. We’re so proud to operate in Norfolk County and Port Colborne.” 

Lighthouse is doing what they do best, providing a “leave your worries at the door” night out on the town with some first rate, professional comedy theatre. But this year those who might not have been able to attend can take in a show compliments of Lighthouse. “We wanted to get these tickets to those that would have not been able to go otherwise,” shares Ritschel. “What we do at Lighthouse Festival really is for everybody, and laughter is good for the soul. We hope they can enjoy a show this summer on us, and experience the joy of theatre.”

Organizations that received complimentary tickets this summer include:

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grand Erie
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oxford County 
  • Community Living Access
  • Simcoe Caring Cupboard 
  • Port Cares
  • Port Dover Food Bank
  • Waterford Food Cupboard 
  • Youth Unlimited Norfolk
