Myers Hyundai Bells Corners House Hunt 2017
Myers Hyundai in Bells Corners is happy to be the title sponsor of the 2017 House Hunt! This fun event will be taking place Saturday May 13th, so register soon if you are interested in taking part!
What is the House Hunt?
The House Hunt event was founded by Colleen Lyle, a real estate broker, and Sue Hameed, a mortgage broker. In their line of work, they realized a lot of people could afford to pay a mortgage on a house, however they struggled to come up with the down payment to purchase a home. The women decided to start the House Hunt as a fun way for teams of two to participate in a scavenger hunt with the winning team receiving $15,000 to use towards a down payment on a new home!
The Myers Hyundai Bells Corners House Hunt 2017 will be taking place at the Kanata Centrum. The scavenger hunt will take place through the centrum with teams competing on foot.

The new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the Queensway Carleton Hospital recently celebrated the official opening and is preparing to start taking patients soon. As the Myers Automotive Group donated $1 million towards the ACE unit, a few members from the Myers group and Mews family, including Mr. Hank Mews and son Mr. Robert Mews (Executive VP of The Myers Automotive Group) were on hand at the grand opening ceremony which was timed to a visit from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Infrastructure Minister and local MPP, Bob Chiarelli.
The Mews family and the Myers Automotive Group have always felt it is important to give back to the Ottawa-area community and are happy to have made this contribution to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where Mr. Hank Mews has previously sat on the hospital board. We look forward to seeing how this new unit helps the Ottawa-area community members in need of this specialised care.
