Toronto, ON, Canada – In addition to being an award-winning homebuilder Concert once again proved itself to be an active community builder. On the morning of Saturday, October 16th local residents, business people and early morning shoppers gathered at Berczy Park to enjoy a free pancake breakfast and a wide range of unique entertainment.
Giving back to the community did not end with breakfast as Concert’s President, Brian McCauley, was on hand to present a cheque for $20,000 that will go towards making a lasting improvement to Berczy Park. The park sits adjacent to Concert’s most recent condominium development, The Berczy within the heart of the historic St. Lawrence neighbourhood.
Local historian and vivid storyteller Bruce Bell led a fascinating audio visual presentation that dynamically demonstrated how the St. Lawrence neighbourhood has evolved over its 150 year history. Historical reenactors playing the role of the park’s namesake William Berczy and his wife also made an appearance and added to the ambiance bringing the area’s history to life. A magician and face painter as always were a big hit for the kids.
“One of the things that has always set Concert apart in Vancouver is the depth of their community involvement,” says Catherine Diraison, General Manager of Project Sales in Toronto. “It is a tradition that was brought to Toronto when Concert expanded in 2002. Bringing neighbours together contributes to making great neighbourhoods, which is what Concert is all about.”
Since it’s inception 21 years ago, Concert has prided itself on serving as a community builder. This commitment is the driving force behind our many contributions to not-for-profit causes, parks and recreation, education and training, and direct investment to socially conscious community development projects.
