Niagara Metals will hold a free, family-friendly fundraising event at its Royalton location from 11 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 23.

“The First Annual Niagara Metals Royalton Summer Picnic and Community Fundraiser” will raise money for several local organizations: Mercy Flight WNY; Roy-Hart Sports Booster Club; and the Gasport Chemical Hose Company, who will be holding a “buck in a boot” drive.

This event will also offer loads of free activities for the family. There will be free ice cream for kids, a bounce house, and horse-drawn wagon rides. To add to the excitement, a Mercy Flight helicopter will land at Niagara Metals-Royalton between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. and fire engines will be on hand for viewing. Music from Jonesie and the Red House Band will round out the fun starting at 1:00 p.m.

Chiavetta’s chicken dinners will be sold for $8.00 each with 100% of the proceeds going to Mercy Flight WNY. Presale tickets for the chicken dinners will be available from now until the day of the event at both Niagara Metals’ Royalton and Niagara Falls locations, as well as at the Gasport Chemical Hose Company. The Roy-Hart Sports Boosters will sell hot dogs and hamburgers, provided free of charge by Niagara Metals, with 100% of the sales benefiting the club.

Niagara Metals-Royalton will extend its hours of operation to 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on the day of the event so customers can “raise some funds” of their own by turning in scrap for cash, but you don’t have to bring in metal to get in on the fun. The day’s activities and music are free for everyone. Niagara Metals-Royalton is located at 8729 Rochester Road (Rte. 31) in Gasport.
