Champlain Park Holiday Decorations Contest

We would like to congratulate the winner of the Champlain Park Holiday Decorations Contest whose efforts were recognized by Champlain Park residents. The winner is 234 Cowley Avenue!!! This house was voted the best decorated by residents of Champlain Park because of the dozens of festive decorations that adorned it: snowmen, strings of lights, toy soldiers, etc…It was not surprising that the Santa stopover won the prize that consists of a $50 gift certificate that can be used at any Wellington West merchant.

The Champlain Park Holiday Charity Auction has now closed and we’re happy to announce that it has raised over $1700 for the Parkdale Food Centre!!! See the link at http://www.32auctions.com/champlainpark

The neighbourhood got completely behind it with great donations of unique items and services, lots of heated bidding and over 3000 website visits!

A big thank you to all who donated items and to all bidders, your generosity during these holiday times is much appreciated. Please see below a message from the Executive Director of the Parkdale Food Centre:

“Thank you so much…This donation will go a long way in helping us to purchase ingredients for the hundreds of nutritious meals we make every week, to share with neighbours in need.”

And a big thank you to the Champlain Park Community Association for helping make this happen!


Just a reminder that the house decoration contest is still on, running until the 26th.
