Hello Friends of Roselawn Centre,

We have a variety of fundraising initiatives happening all the time with the goal of maintaining the beautiful Roselawn mansion as a centre for arts and culture in Port Colborne. We have come a long way with our Capital Campaign, working with the City of Port Colborne and the federal government and we’re very excited to participate in the unveiling of the restoration in July 2018. Our successful fundraisers such as the annual Christmas Market, 50/50 Draws, Name This Tune, Paint Night and Juried Art Auctions helped us to reach this goal. It was great to share in the unveiling of the major repairs to the exterior of the mansion with our previous Mayor, John Maloney, MP Vance Badawey and David Lametti, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.

With the outside of the restoration complete, our goal is now to improve the interior of Roselawn Centre and we have continued our fundraising efforts, focusing on our and our Evening with Anna Olsen, our Christmas Market and 50/50 Draws during the theatre events. During this difficult time though, of course, everything is on hold. We had planned our first Spring Market as well but had to cancel due to the current quarantine conditions. We’ll be back in full ‘FoRC’ as soon as we are able!

Our wonderful FoRC member volunteers are critical in making our fundraising events a success. We could not do it without them and we sincerely thank them for their dedication and cheerful support.

In addition to our fundraising efforts, our FoRC members’ have been tremendously generous in donating. Donations have surpassed all other fundraising efforts and for this, we are extremely grateful. We can’t thank you enough! Please continue to support us in our mission and mandates of arts promotion and the continued restoration of the Roselawn heritage home.
