LOCKPORT – The Lockport Rotary Club last week presented a check for $28,800 to the YWCA of Niagara to assist in its capital improvement campaign to install a commercial kitchen to assist with educating victims of abuse in the culinary arts.

The money was raised May 17, when 115 area residents attended the Rotary Foundation’s annual gourmet dinner at Spring Lake Winery in Lockport.

The YWCA’s Community Culinary Center, to be located at the YWCA’s main building, 32 Cottage St., will train participants to staff the food service at the Lockport Ice Arena and Sports Center, scheduled to open in September.
