Near the beginning of winter, Summerhill Homes announced that they would be partnering with Skate to Great to collect donations at their West Shore Beach Club sales office in Severn, Ontario (just outside Orillia). Just recently, Summerhill Homes presented two barrels of skates and hockey equipment to Skate to Great!

All of the donations of new and gently used equipment will be donated to disadvantaged youth in Orillia. Skate to Great’s mission is to give every child in Canada the opportunity to enjoy the winter season and partake in one of the country’s favourite activities. As of 2011, there are over 600,000 children in Canada living in poverty, and 300,000 of them are in families that rely on food banks. Skates and hockey equipment are expensive, and obviously aren’t a priority for most who struggle to afford food. Since 2012, Skate to Great has distributed around 6,000 pairs of skates. They have a long way to go to reach every Canadian youth in need, but Summerhill Homes helped them get a step closer.

“We’re really pleased to have partnered with and supported Skate to Great,” says Sal Ruscica, President of Summerhill Homes. “The organization’s mission to give every child in Canada the opportunity to skate, regardless of their economic or physical circumstances is a cause that we truly believe in at Summerhill Homes.”

The homes of West Shore Beach Club

A huge thanks goes out to Summerhill Homes for participating in such a unique and generous initiative. We love when builders use their prominent status in a community to give back.

West Shore Beach Club is a resort-style master-planned community in Severn on Lake Couchiching, featuring two-storey homes, bungalows, and bungalows with lofts. Located on the lake, surrounded by the natural beauty of Severn, West Shore Beach Club is truly a four-season community that offers both summer and winter activities all year.

The homes at West Shore Beach Club are divided into two collections. The Shoreline Collection features bungalows and bungalows with lofts, ranging from 1,050 to 2,370 square feet. The Beachside Collection offers slightly larger bungalows and bungalows with lofts ranging from 1,460 to 2,580 square feet.

Some of the impressive interior features and finishes at West Shore Beach Club include beautiful structural accents, like vaulted, cathedral, and coffered ceilings, columns, and 9’ main floor ceilings. The gourmet eat-in kitchens feature furniture-finish cabinetry and are large enough to have a dedicated breakfast area. The elegant bathrooms offer oversized tubs, luxurious vanities, and high quality imported ceramic tile.
