Ho Ho Ho! Free, Family Skating Party with Prizes and Santa

Published Dec 13, 2013 in press release

Kingston, ON – REALTORS® Ryan and Gail Power are hosting a free, family skating party on Saturday, December 14th from 1 - 3 p.m. at the Cataraqui Arena on Sunnyside Road in Kingston.  There will be music, prizes, a silent auction and a visit from Santa Claus.  All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Family and Children's Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington as well as the parents and children who rely on those services.  Any donations of unwrapped children’s toys are welcome and will brighten Christmas morning for children in need.

Ryan and Gail are a husband and wife team from Sutton Group – Masters Realty Inc*, who have been selling real estate in Kingston for more than two decades.  This free event is their way of saying thank you to the community.  They’re giving Santa a hand by arranging for some great prizes and auction items including a huge gift basket donated by Ken and Lorraine Rolston, Broker/Owners of Sutton Group – Masters Realty Inc*; a pair of tickets for a 2014 performance donated by the Thousand Islands Playhouse Theatre; a Bella Bistro gift certificate from Paul Muller and Kevin Lapeer; five Milestones gift cards from General Manager Ben Mukherjee and a free home inspection from Steve Burke Home Inspection.

“We are always looking to find ways to thank our clients for their business and their referrals,” says Gail.  “In the meantime, we attended the Sutton conference and were touched by the many stories of people just like us who decided to make a difference within their communities.  We caught some Sutton Spirit!  Ryan and I thought it might be nice to host a skating party and offer an opportunity to our clients and the public to give back too!  That’s when the event began to snowball!”

“We reached out to local businesses and asked for door prizes and silent auction items.  All the proceeds will go to help kids who are receiving assistance from Family and Children's Services.  Any toy donations will be a welcome surprise for the kids at Christmastime.  We selected Family and Children's Services because we admire the work that they do to help families and kids in care.  We understand that there are many children living in foster situations waiting for their forever homes.”
