Halminen Family Foundation Makes $2-Million-and-1-dollar Pledge


BOWMANVILLE, – On Friday, October 25, 2019,
Bowmanville Hospital Foundation hosted its 33rd Annual Fundraising Gala at the Ajax Convention Centre. Community leaders, donors, volunteers and guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening with all funds going to support the redevelopment and expansion project for Bowmanville Hospital.

Halminen Homes, the event’s Venue Sponsor, topped the evening when Campaign Chair, Kirk Kemp announced The Halminen Family Foundation & Lakeside Self Storage’s $2-million-and-1-dollar pledge to the hospital’s redevelopment and expansion project. This is the largest personal gift to be received by the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation, followed by the Kemp family’s 2018 leadership gift.

For over 45 years, Halminen Homes has been building homes across Durham Region, Peterborough, Lindsey, Cobourg and Kingston. The Halminen family’s community partnerships and generosity have supported and influenced many local charities and organizations throughout Clarington and beyond.

“We are proud to support the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation and its vital redevelopment project,” said Mr. Halminen. “Our community continues to grow and the need for local and accessible health care is important now more than ever. The Halminen Family Foundation & Lakeside Self Storage is fortunate to play a part in the delivery of excellent health care now and for decades to come.”

“We are incredibly thankful to have such a generous organization within our community,” said Kirk Kemp, Chair, We Care We Can Campaign. “Halminen Homes has been a loyal supporter of the Foundation’s Annual Fundraising Gala for many years, and established themselves with diverse connections, community partnerships and generous support for many local charities. The Foundation is very grateful for their commitment to elevate health care for the people of Clarington and across Durham Region.

“The Halminen Family Foundation’s gift comes at a very exciting time, as the Bowmanville Hospital redevelopment project was recently recognized on Infrastructure Ontario’s recent Fall 2019 P3 Market Report,” said Mrs. Chris Kooy, Chair, Bowmanville Hospital Foundation. “Halminen Homes has been a wonderful supporter of the Gala, Hospital and community for decades, and we are thrilled to have their continued support.”
