Winter Events Celebrate Food, Families and Good Health
Updated: Dec 14, 2018
Stratford, ON – Sutton Group – First Choice Realty Ltd.* is proud to have supported two local events that warmed people’s spirits on cold winter days. First was Stratford Winterfest, a family-friendly event featuring ice block forts, a petting zoo, a bouncy castle playground, an ice sculpture competition and high-performance snowmobile stunts. The other was the Heartburn Day - Chili Cook-Off in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Volunteers from this Sutton office help to keep the culinary tradition bubbling along.
“Heartburn Day is an annual fundraiser for our local Heart and Stroke Foundation,” says REALTOR® Stephanie Theodoropoulos. “Businesses, restaurants, service clubs all come together to see who can make the best chili. Hundreds of locals come out to taste and vote for the best while they shop the silent auction table, listen to live music and chat with friends. Sutton Group – First Choice Realty Ltd.* is a major sponsor of the event and we volunteer selling tickets and taking donations at the door. The event raised over $30,000!”
Heartburn Day began 31 years ago and is now a favourite foodie tradition. The theme at this February’s cook-off was “All around the World" and featured dozens of unique chilies. Proceeds are directed to heart disease and stroke research.
The First Choice team is pleased to have been able to support both the Stratford Winterfest and Heartburn Day with funding and volunteers. These celebrations keep getting bigger and better each year thanks to interest and support from individuals, governments and businesses.
In 2017, this Sutton office raised an astounding $6,102 for the Stratford Perth Hospice Project through a silent auction, dinner and an office contribution.
