Ryan and Gail Power, sales reps with Sutton Group Masters Realty in Kingston, Ont., were among the many volunteers ringing the bells for the Salvation Army kettles during the holiday season. This and may other acts of kindness are why the husband and wife Power Team won gold as the favourite Realtors in a local newspaper’s Readers Choice Awards. For the past three years, the couple has sponsored team jerseys for the St. Paul’s Pride Midget Hockey team. They are also dedicated to helping refugees.
“In 2016, we completed our journey of helping a refugee family settle into Canadian life,” says Gail. “With the assistance of the Westside Fellowship Christian Reformed Church, a family of three arrived in October 2015 fleeing from Eritrea through a refugee camp in Sudan. The Power Team assisted in raising nearly $50,000 through events such as a movie night, golf tournament, gala dinner, bake sale, bike-a-thon, garage sale and barbecue.”
