As an integral part of its corporate philosophy, Markham-based new home and community builder Kylemore Communities is committed to lending a hand to charities and non-profit organizations in areas in which it builds. Throughout the year, the company hosts events that reflect this spirit. On Nov. 30, Kylemore held its annual Holiday Season Celebration at The School Fine Dining to show its appreciation to its dedicated trades, suppliers, employees and supporters. Guests were invited to join Kylemore in support of the Starlight Children’s Foundation Toy Drive by bringing children’s gifts, and the response was extremely generous.
“This annual gathering is our way of thanking our suppliers for their ongoing support which enables us to continue to provide top quality homes and neighbourhoods to new home buyers,” says Patrick O’Hanlon, Kylemore’s president. “I’m pleased but not surprised by the many donations we collected this year; these are some of the most generous people I know.”
Following the party, Trudy Rudolph and Suzanne Raheb of Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada met with some of Kylemore’s team to collect the toys, books and games. “We are so grateful to Kylemore for including us in their holiday program,” says Trudy Rudolph, Hospital program coordinator for Starlight. “This year we have close to 70 Starlight families who will benefit from our Toy Drive. This donation represents a huge boost to our campaign.”
For more than 20 years, Starlight Children’s Foundation has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries.
Through a broad array of in-patient, out-patient and online resources, Starlight works hard to support seriously ill children and their families from diagnosis through the entire course of medical treatment and beyond. Whether it’s a trip to the zoo, a toy-filled playroom or an exciting sporting event, Starlight’s mission is to bring fun, joy and giggles right where they are needed the most.
