A Flurry of Fundraising

Parkland on the Glen

At Parkland, community is more than just a place you live, it’s where you share experiences, give back and
support others. This past holiday season, residents at Parkland on the Glen have been busy raising funds
for a number of great causes.

Caring Cards and Christmas Cakes
In October, seven residents submitted 11 holiday inspired images to be featured on cards, with the artist’s name and where the proceeds were going. At the time of printing this issue of Connections, they raised $584 and counting for the Mississauga Firefighter Benevolent Fund and the Alzheimer Society of Peel.
In the spirit of friendly competition, residents also voted on their favourite card designs. Parkland on the Glen resident, Jerry Guild, received the most votes for his manger design. “It’s the reason for the season,” says Jerry. “I’m a big believer in that, and that’s what I put in my card.” Additionally, the group also sold $386 worth of Christmas cakes at the craft sale with 100% of the proceeds going to Parkinson’s Canada.

Chili Cook-Off

On Giving Tuesday, Parkland on the Glen held its annual chili cook-off event in support of the Mississauga Firefighter Benevolent Fund, raising $480 for the cause. Four participants made up of Parkland team members and Ray Paolini, a firefighter and member of the Mississauga Firefighter Benevolent Fund committee, went head-to-head to see who had the best chili.
