Newsflash January 2018 – Windsor Welcomes Sunbridge Hotel & Conference Centre
Big things are happening at 430 Ouellette Avenue! The Holiday Inn Hotel Downtown Windsor de-branded on January 5. The hotel name changes to a Sunbridge Hotel & Conference Centre. This name will carry the hotel through extensive renovations to become an exclusive Four Points by Sheraton in the latter part of 2018. “We are so very excited to welcome the Sheraton brand to the City of Windsor and to the downtown core,” says Luisa Moro, Director of Sales.
As part of Mastronardi Produce’s recent partnership with the nonprofit organization, Gesstwood Camp and Education Centre, the Mastronardi Produce brand, SUNSET, hosts an online contest to send area kids to camp (“Camp-ari”) for free. “We’re really excited to be able to give back to the Windsor Essex community through this amazing partnership with Gesstwood Camp & Education Centre,” comments Paul Mastronardi, President and CEO, Mastronardi Produce. “Not only are we renovating five cabins, we’ve developed this exciting and fun contest to send 30 kids to camp for free. I encourage all 10 to 15 year-olds living in the Windsor Essex community to tell us why you deserve to go to SUNSET Camp-ari!” The contest begins January 15 and is open to those aged 10 to 15 who reside in the Windsor Essex community. Contestants will be asked to answer three questions related to why they should win a free week at camp. While at “SUNSET Camp-ari,” contest winners will learn about greenhouse growing and healthy eating, and partake in a field trip to Mastronardi Produce. As well, celebrity Chef Roger Mooking will accompany the kids for one evening at Gesstwood where he will cook dinner and participate in various fun activities.

After 35 years in the marketing and branding field, Ed Roach and his wife Rose Marie have turned a new page in their life’s story. Together they opened Sissy & Roché Fine Arts November 2017 in the creative town of Kingsville, their new home. It may come as a surprise to the business community, who knows Ed from his branding activity, that he is a passionate watercolour painter. Sissy & Roché gives Ed a dynamic platform to showcase his talent to a wider audience. Combined with his wife Rose Marie’s passion for food and entertaining, both hope to share their knowledge and help grow the fine arts community in Kingsville from their location at 9-313 Main Street East. Sissy & Roché is not just exhibition space, but also a gift shop, a space for cooking and art classes for all ages and levels plus an off-site meeting room called “Passion View,” which gives businesses and groups a professional meeting area in a gallery setting. “We’ve even had guests inquire about renting the entire gallery for cocktail parties,” state the couple, adding their “programming will feature other local artists as well as artists from out of town, such as Marcia Hoeck from San Diego, opening in April of 2018. We are lining up book signings and feature art events like Sissy & Roché painting parties, guest chefs and a speakers series.” View more about their upcoming events at: SissyandRoche.com.
