In an effort to be a provider of services which encourage thoughtful and mindful decisions that impact our community, our city, and our environment, Tycoon is extremely proud and excited to share some of our new partnerships and programs that we’ve been cultivating in order to be among those who champion, embrace, and advocate for socially and environmentally conscious programs. As we worked on this program it became alarming that very few, if any at all, event firms in our city had similar measures in place. We’d like to be a catalyst for this to change. Without further ado…
In 2012, Anthony at your service was founded to give Anthony, a gentle, joyful man with autism the opportunity to make a living doing what he loved. Anthony enjoyed meeting people, visiting new places, and helping so Anthony’s family and friends helped him start Anthony at Your Service so he could have meaningful work and provide a valuable service to the community.
As you can imagine, the company has been embraced by the community and his delivery business has grown into a social enterprise that employs several other people with intellectual disabilities. Whether its courier service, envelope stuffing or material assembly, they’ve got you covered!
Tycoon events and promotions is happy to partner with this wonderful organization and work collaboratively on event projects that can provide the opportunity for their teams to get involved and have a great time doing it!
Let us introduce Good Virtue Recycling, providing recycling pick-up services that give back to the community. They look to make an impact by empowering local youth through partnerships with reputable and honest youth programs.
A significant percentage of the collected deposits go towards their 4 pillar initiative that is separated into, you guessed it, 4 areas – sports, arts, music and nutrition. Through each pillar, they take a grassroots approach to community engagement and find unique opportunities where financial support is necessary for youth to participate in the respective pillar.
Tycoon is pleased to offer this free recycling service to our clients as an opportunity to give back to the community.
Did you know that nearly half the food produced in North and South America is sent to landfills as waste?
Leftovers Rescue food is a local non-profit organization powered by 200 volunteers with a mandate to eliminate food waste going to the landfill. Offering 51 routes, 7 days a week, this organization has provided over 138,000 meals to those who need it most.
We’re pleased to offer this option to our clients to ensure that supported service agencies such as the Bissell Centre and YESS receive access to good food.
Recycling flowers, delivering smiles.
Stems from The Heart is a local non-profit organization that was created to bring joy and happiness to those in need through the use of recycled flowers.
Since September 2017, donated flowers have been hand crafted into beautiful bouquets by volunteers and donated to various facilities in our city. We’re on a mission to collaborate with our clients to ensure flowers that are used for events are collected and delivered to Hospices, Palliative Care Houses, Cancer Centres, Women’s Shelters and any other deserving beneficiary within our community.
