Support Our Events

How You Can Be Part of our Success

As a charitable and not for profit organization Grove Park Home relies on support from our families and the community. Special events are just one way that we raise money to support the needs of our residents. There are many ways you can help. Read below to see how you can “dip in and help”….

Sponsors help events with donated money, product or services. Regardless of the type of sponsorship, they all contribute to the financial success of any event. If you or someone you know has a business that would like to help, please know that we offer important sponsor recognition programs. Call 705-792-7404 to discuss sponsorship opportunities.

Grove Park Dragon Boat Team

Did you know that we spend 100% of the proceeds from this race on resident care items?  Share our story with your families, service groups, and businesses. The more who know what we do, the more successes we will have. New paddlers, new sponsors, and unique partners all enhance our “commitment to care.”  

Barrie Dragon Boat Festival Races

Being part of The Geri-Antics is a whole lot of fun. No skills required, we will hold 3-4 evening practices in August on beautiful Kempenfelt Bay. Race day is the last Saturday in August and is spent on the waterfront together with over 1000 other paddlers, enjoying races, great food and good company. Call 705-792-7404 to paddle with us.
