Lucchetta Homes Holds Annual Summer Sizzle Charity Event

Local Homebuilder Raises $10,000 for Wellspring Niagara

On Saturday, July 22nd, Niagara-based homebuilder Lucchetta Homes held its Annual Summer Sizzle Charity Event at The Residences at Hunters Pointe on 300 Daimler Parkway in Welland.

This gala afternoon event was attended by over 400 Hunters Pointe residents as well as friends, family, and local trades and suppliers. Several outdoor tents were set up on the Hunters Pointe Community Centre and attendees were able to enjoy a wide range of highlights including live music and entertainment, casino, vintage sport cars, VIP guests and speakers, and a special wine tasting and craft beer area.

"The day was a huge success and all residents enjoyed themselves immensely," says Lucchetta Homes’ Director of Sales and Marketing Kim Kopyl. "It was a great way for current residents to meet and mesh with new residents who haven’t moved in yet, and strengthen our community." 

This year, Lucchetta Homes was pleased to raise $10,000 at its charity BBQ with all proceeds going towards the Wellspring Niagara Cancer Support Foundation. Wellspring Niagara is a non-profit charitable organization that provides free emotional, psychological and informational support to individuals in the Niagara area dealing with cancer.

Lucchetta Homes combined its fundraising efforts with Tour Du Lac - an initiative which is also raising funds for Wellspring Niagara. Hunters Pointe residents were able to cheer on the cyclists who had spent the past week riding around Lake Ontario to help raise money and awareness for this important cause.

"This was our way of giving back to the community," Kim says of the event. "We’re proud to offer support to those going through this terrible disease, and help out their loved ones."

Lucchetta Homes is a luxury custom home builder owned and operated by brothers Rob and Ed Lucchetta. Originally founded in the late 1950s by their father Ugo Lucchetta, Lucchetta Homes has built an outstanding reputation in the community over the years for its commitment to quality, fine workmanship and customer service excellence.
