THIS YEAR, FOR THE FIRST TIME, KERRY’S PLACE AUTISM SERVICES PARTICIPATED IN THE MAGNA HOEDOWN.
It was an honour to be selected as a charitable recipient and we are so grateful to Magna International and to Neighbourhood Network for the opportunity.
Our participation in the 30th Annual Magna Hoedown meant that we could meet members of our community. It allowed us to connect with residents and with other charities in York Region. Through each of these interactions it was very clear that we were all there with the same goal of having a positive impact on the lives of others in our communities. That common goal drove each of us to work hard and to support one another. It was incredible to experience the comradery that ensued each time we all came together.
Throughout this entire experience Neighbourhood Network and Magna cheered on, guided and supported each of the charitable participants, making our job of working together one that was exciting, fun and rewarding.
Kerry’s Place had so much support from volunteers and staff members. It was their continued commitment that allowed us to achieve our goal of raising funds to support Kerry’s Place programs and services in York Region.
This year’s Hoedown had a total of nearly 800 volunteers. So many people gave their time and their energy to make this event a success and we are proud that we can count our Kerry’s Place volunteers among them.
Kerry’s Place staff members worked hard to sell raffle and event tickets to friends and family members. Without these efforts, we would not have been successful. Thank you to our dedicated staff for supporting this unique initiative!
To those of you who purchased event and raffle tickets from Kerry’s Place, we are so grateful for your support. By purchasing from Kerry’s Place, you have directly contributed to impacting the lives of individuals with Autism and their families in York Region. Thank you!
LAST NIGHT, ALL OF THAT HARD WORK CAME TO FRUITION AND KERRY’S PLACE WAS PRESENTED WITH A CHEQUE FROM MAGNA INTERNATIONAL IN THE AMOUNT OF $18,225.26!
Thank you to Magna International for their commitment to our communities in York Region. The spirit of philanthropy is alive and well at Magna and this year alone over 166,000 people in York Region will benefit from Hoedown funds received.
THIS IS WHY WE HOEDOWN!
