‘Sleep Cheap Charities Reap’ returns to Niagara Falls next month

A 17-year tradition is returning to Niagara Falls next month.

“Sleep Cheap Charities Reap,” created by then Niagara Falls Councillor Jim Diodati (now the city’s Mayor) in 2004, has raised over $2.2 million that’s been distributed to over 100 local charities in that time-span.

At the time, Diodati was simply looking for a unique way to celebrate the city’s 100 anniversary and promote local tourism but it has spanned into something far greater with the charity component added the following year.

The promotion offered up some of the city’s best hotel rooms for a discounted rate to Niagara Region residents for “donations.” The minimum donations have risen by $10 for this year’s event to cover the additional cleaning costs due to the pandemic.

Still, standard rooms will be as low as $45 right up to $95 for a waterpark room.

While the event is being held from Sunday, November 14 through to Friday, November 19, reservations can start beginning tomorrow (October 15) from 9 am.
