Enter the Tomato Stomp!

The Tomato Stomp at the Greenhouse Competitions

This year, as part of the 10th Anniversary celebrations of the Greenhouse Competitions, R.E.A.CH. International is bringing back the beloved Leamington Tomato Family, along with the Tomato Stomp on Sunday, June 18th at 1:30pm, right after the Leamington Fair’s bike draw.

Since 2007, the Greenhouse Competitions have been run by R.E.A.CH. International (and since 2010 they’ve been hosted at the Leamington Fair).  This little charity with a huge heart has been able to do amazing things in the second poorest country in the world, Uganda, Africa.  Building a medical clinic, sanitary latrines, clean water sources, micro-loans, and more, including child sponsorship of children from preschool to university, are just some of the amazing things R.E.A.CH. has accomplished.

To help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Greenhouse Competitions, R.E.A.CH. is bringing an old familiar family back.  The Greenhouse Competitions are held every year within the Leamington Fair.  This year, R.E.A.CH. is bringing back the TOMATO STOMP, along with Stewie and the rest of the Leamington Tomato Family.  

Registrations to be part of the Father’s Day fun are being accepted now by filling out the form on this page.    Ten teams of 5 members will be able to compete to see who makes the most tomato juice.  With great prizes and hilarious fun, beginning at 1:30pm right after the Fair’s bike draw, families can spend some quality tomato-squishing-time together! 

“We started our Competitions at the Tomato Festival so it just seemed fitting.” Says Art Barron, President of R.E.A.CH. International. “We wanted to bring back the fun and nostalgia of The Tomato Stomp but this time, with Greenhouse Tomatoes, generously donated by Lakeside Produce.  We are hoping that families will come out and stomp. What a great and fun way to celebrate Father’s Day, and win or lose, you will get to take home some of the area’s best greenhouse produce, unsquished of course!”
What’s more, this premium produce will be sold at amazing prices beginning Saturday after the Awards Ceremony (around 9pm) and again all day on Sunday, beginning at 10am until sold out.  All funds raised from the Red Sun Greenhouse Competitions go to R.E.A.CH. International.  For those interested in simply donating, tax receipts are available.  

REACH International

All funds raised from the Greenhouse Competitions go to R.E.A.CH. International.  This local charity has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to build schools & clinics, drill water wells, and sponsor and care for impoverished children in Uganda, Africa.

Their unique program guarantees that 100% of child-sponsorship dollars goes to help the children. Fundraisers, such as this one raise money for operating expenses and since we’re all volunteers, our expenses are very low. Whatever we raise beyond those expenses also goes to our projects.
