KYLEMORE COMMUNITIES - ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY
Kylemore Communities' trades, staff, and suppliers have once again answered the call to help brighten the holidays for York Region families at Christmas. In mid-November, the Markham-based luxury home builder held its annual Holiday Party and welcomed 400 guests who were asked to bring a new toy.
For a third consecutive year, the toys collected were donated to the Christmas Food and Toy Drive organized by Unionville Alliance Church (UAC), which in turn distributes hampers to area families. Russell Foy, UAC, Hampers of Hope volunteer, was on hand to receive the toys. "We are extremely grateful to Kylemore and their many partners for the wonderful boost our annual toy drive receives. With their support we have been able to increase the number of families we help at this time of year," he said.
Well-known for his philanthropy and charitable work, Patrick O'Hanlon, president Kylemore Communities said, "Lending a hand to help others is what unites a community and strengthens our ties to each other. It is part of our DNA to give generously, and it's heartwarming to know that the Christmas Season will be brighter for many children because of the generous donations our guests made to the toy drive."
In the past eight years, the Annual Kylemore Kares Charity Golf Tournament has raised over $1 million for charity. With funds from this event, Kylemore Communities assists charities and non-profit organizations throughout the year.
Since 1997, Kylemore has been developing and building master-planned Angus Glen Community in Markham. A neighbourhood of almost 1,100 homes, parks, two 18-hole championship golf courses, shops and restaurants, Angus Glen is the recipient of a prestigious 2014 Markham Design Excellence Award and Building Industry and Land Development (BILD) Association's pinnacle 2013 Places to Grow Community of the Year Award.
