18th Annual Big Brother Big Sisters of York Gala
On Saturday November16th the 18th Annual Gala supporting Big Brother Big Sisters of York was held at LeParc in Thornhill – celebrating the 100th anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters. NewRoads and our General Manager Jim VanDusen are proud to have supported such a fabulous event honoring Mr. Frank Stronach and celebrating 100 years of BBBS in Canada.
This wonderful mentoring program supplying so much support and guidance to needy youths in our community has been running for 40 years in York Region. The event was first class. The live auction and silent auction prizes were terrific – and all donated. The entertainment, food and speakers were also excellent. It was extra special for the NewRoads’ Team to have Noel Croxon there. Noel is Michael Croxon’s (the owner of the NewRoads Automotive Group) father. Noel who was a highly respected and regarded auto dealer himself for 40 years was also involved in Toronto for many years with BBBS. He was a Big Brother and held key positions on their executive board for many years – including President. He also was one of the founders of their now huge fundraising dinner.
Additionally hearing Mr Stronach speak was a delight for everyone. Mr. Stronach and Magna have so positively impacted our community in so many ways. His generosity and care for our community is simply amazing.
