Many years ago when I first came to Canada, the concept of cottages fascinated me. We didn’t really have one of those back home as we live in an archipelago which means everyone literally lives in an island big or small and so we did. We lived in a island where the beach was close by and since we only had two official seasons – wet or dry (glorious summer days or monsoon rainy days), we didn’t pack to go to a cottage, which seems like a very Canadian thing to do. Now, as a fiercely proud Canadian, I want one. I want one of those quintessential postcard perfect ones in the Muskoka. Specifically, the incredible $1.1 million Muskoka Lakefront cottage from the 2015 Princess Margaret Foundation Welcome Home Sweepstakes.

But this is not all about not only about beautiful homes, fast cars and fabulous holidays, this is really about the FIGHT AGAINST CANCER. As a fiercely proud Canadian, I also want to make a difference in the community. As an important part of why we do what we do here at Twenty York Street, we are supporting the annual Princess Margaret Foundation Welcome Home Sweepstakes, which raises millions of dollars for cancer research. When you order your tickets, you not only have a chance to win some fantastic prizes, you are helping fund cancer research by one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world!
