Now in its seventh year, the annual golf tournament is hosted by the award-winning homebuilder and attended by a range of supporters that include owners and employees of Kylemore’s loyal trades and consultants. Over the past seven years, close to $1 million dollars has been raised which goes directly to charities

A change to the timing of this year’s event had golfers enjoying a hearty breakfast before teeing off at 8:00 am. A glorious day was followed by lunch and musical entertainment, the awarding of some terrific prizes and the personal thanks from Kylemore’s President Patrick O’Hanlon. Special guests Debra Cooper Burger, President & CEO of Unionville Homes Society and Attilio Lio, Zodiac Developments, speaking on behalf of York Region Children’s Aid Foundation, each shared their heartfelt appreciation for the funds their charities receive.

Kylemore Kares is the name used by the company to make its many contributions to charity each year through sponsorships and donations. “Everything we raise goes right back to the community,” says Patrick O’Hanlon. “We believe in giving back to our universities, hospitals, as well as smaller community-based organizations and individuals who need our help.”

In the past Kylemore has supported the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, the ALS Society of Canada, Union Villa as well as sporting and theatre initiatives. The funds raised at the golf tournament will be distributed throughout the year. “We’re so fortunate to be in a position to offer a helping hand,” says O’Hanlon.
