Brought To You By Our Community Partners:


For nearly 50 years, Performance Auto Group has cared about the people and communities within the Niagara and Hamilton regions.

"Our  company supports grassroots, charitable, not-for-profit organizations  who contribute to improving the quality of life in our villages, towns,  and cities. From the arts to education, the environment, healthcare,  social services, transportation, and youth, we give back in meaningful  ways - through volunteerism, donations, sponsorships, partnerships, and  the use of our vehicles - because our guests live here, and we live here  too."



Fat  Louie's, home of the M.V.Pizza, generously donates dozens of meals to  our Grantham Optimist Softball program for our growing, hungry players.

Every  week, players in the Bantam and Bantam-Midget leagues are chosen, by  opposing teams for sportsmanship and skill, to receive the gift of a  free pizza courtesy of Fat Louie. 

We thank Fat Louie's for their continuous support in giving our youth a fun and memorable summer.
