Inaugural Sutton Spirit Lifetime Achievement Award
Kingston, ON – Across Canada, Sutton Brokers, REALTORS® and staff contribute their time, talents and funds to a variety of important causes. Sutton Spirit shares these stories as a source of inspiration and to shine a light on the ways that Sutton members are improving lives and communities. The first ever Sutton Spirit Lifetime Achievement Award was recently presented to John and Heather Price. This well-respected husband-wife realty team have focused their efforts on the military.
Born and raised in Kingston, home of the Royal Military College, John and Heather have deep respect for those who defend our country—sometimes at great personal cost. For more than two decades, the couple has channelled their efforts into fundraising, donations and professional services. John is authorized as a military relocation agent and is a member of DNDIRP Cross-Canada Relocation.
“In 2013, I was made the Honouree Executive Director of Fundraising for the Kingston Military Family Resource Center,” says John. “My goal is to make them a contender with the top charities in Kingston. I have reached out to many community partners that are all working with me to donate and raise money for various military causes.”
“Working with the Kingston Frontenac’s Jr. A team, we have two major military appreciation fundraiser games per year—the Remembrance Game and the season’s end game. We invite many VIPs from the Minister of Defence to Canada’s Chief of Defense Staff (our top general). After the game, the special Cadpat jerseys are auctioned off. Proceeds support programs like those for soldiers with post traumatic stress disorder.”
John and Heather have personally donated 1,400 tickets for military personnel to attend the Kingston Frontenac’s hockey game. The couple is also proud to support to the Kingston Military Family Resource Centre (KMFRC) and the Royal Military College Foundation. Recently, KMFRC asked John if he would accept the position of Honourary Colonel, which is one of the highest honours bestowed on any civilian.
