An Expression Of Appreciation!

The Grand River Council on Aging would like to recognize the Levante Living Foundation, Charlotte Villa Retirement Living and Riverview Terrace Retirement Living, as the lead Sponsor of the 2021 GRCOA Grand Parade!

Levante Foundation aspires to be a strategic and meaningful contributor to the quality of life for seniors in the communities in which they operate retirement homes. The GRCOA was the grateful recipient of a grant towards our Info Hub from the Levante Foundation this past year.  For the Grand Parade, Levante’s local Homes, Charlotte Villa and Riverview Terrace, have generously partnered to be our Lead Sponsors and we are very thankful for their immediate and wholehearted response to the event.

Appreciation also goes out to Pay it Forward Reality for being the Rest Station Sponsor

Special thanks to Event Sponsors, GFL Environmental, Laurier University, GRCHC, CMHA, Clarence Street Dental, The Jazz Fest and Kiwanis Club of Brantford.  Thanks also to Media Sponsor, Rocket Digital.
