BPSN contest winners
Can we have a drum roll please?
It’s time to announce the winners of BPSN’s first contest.
Congratulations to Rino Berardi, Jim Richardson, Brent Archer and Karen McAllister-Kenny. All those who donated had their names put into an official California Angels hat and the winners were drawn at random.
Berardi won a framed, autographed picture of Akil Thomas scoring the golden goal for Canada at the 2020 World Junior Hockey Championships courtesy of the Niagara IceDogs, while Archer takes home a $100 gift certificate courtesy of Dan Timmins at Big Red Markets in Thorold. McAllister-Kenny is the winner of a Free Batch of Wine, 30 bottles, valued at $135 from Jeff Chcoski at the Niagara Brew Club, while Richardson wins a hoody donated by the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.
Thank you to all who generously donated — the response was outstanding— the funds collected will be used to help maintain the website and put back into the business.
The support is crucial as we believe in free access for our content and have never considered and never will consider a pay wall as part of our business model.
We have posted almost 3,200 stories and countless pictures chronicling virtually every sport across Niagara. Interest in our content is high judging by the more than 1.7 million pages views we have recorded on our site.
We have been able to dedicate two full-time sports journalists (Bill and Bernie) to the task, thanks to generous advertisers who believe BPSN is a good way to promote local sports while also getting their message out to readers. In addition, we have forged partnerships with various sporting groups who see the value in our work. We encourage readers to click on their ads on our website, see what they have to offer and shop local to help businesses that are alway quick to offer support when community groups come calling.
Without this support, BPSN would not exist.
Thanks again and hopefully we will see you soon at an arena or playing field soon!
Bernie and Bill
