On a wonderful Saturday, August 12th, the Sea & Ski team graciously welcomed the community to commemorate three decades of exceptional boutique real estate service in South Georgian Bay and its enchanting surroundings. The day was completed with a fun barbecue and a toast from Sea & Ski Friends and family, as well as our mayor, the MP, MPP, Council, and members of the Centre Grey Hospital Foundation.

At the helm of Sea & Ski Realty stands Karen Cox, an esteemed owner, and broker of record, whose vision has shaped Sea & Ski’s remarkable journey for the last 30 years.

The day brimmed with heartwarming reunions and cherished reminiscences, the weather held off just enough to allow for a lovely barbecue outside of the Sea & Ski office, where Karen has been tirelessly working for the past 30 years to provide premium real estate service to South Georgian Bay and beyond. With the Mayor, MP, & MP present, Sea & Ski was lucky to share this momentous day with the people who have helped to shape the community in which we live and work. Sea & Ski was also joined by members of the board of directors of the Center Grey Hospital Foundation.

Amidst this joyous atmosphere, Sea & Ski seized the moment to present the fruits of their labor from the 2023 golf fundraiser – an event that unfolded on the sunlit grounds of Highland Glen Golf Course in Grey Highlands, on July 14th. The collective benevolence of this gathering translated into an awe-inspiring sum of $47,122.34, all of which will be devoted to the Markdale Centre Grey Hospital Foundation. Gratitude swells within Sea & Ski for the unwavering support exhibited by the community and steadfast businesses. Remarkably, this year’s fundraiser surpassed the previous year’s achievement, amassing over $38,000.

The success of this event, vital to our mission, owes immeasurably to the exceptional generosity of our esteemed major sponsors. We extend heartfelt appreciation to Westmount Storefront Systems LTD, Bird, Markdale IDA Pharmacy, Bowler & Company Chartered Professional Accountants, BMO Private Wealth, Maxwell Farm Store, Devonleigh, Beaver Valley Ski Club, and Sleeman. Equally deserving of our gratitude are our 14-hole sponsors, as well as the 30-plus businesses that donated prizes, raffle items, and auction treasures. Each contribution, no matter its scale, played an indispensable role, and our gratitude knows no bounds. Your unwavering support is the cornerstone of our triumphant fundraisers, and we express our deepest appreciation for your continued partnership.

Again we would like to thank everyone who has helped Sea & Ski make it to 30 years. We could not have had this success without the wonderful community around us!
