About the Program
At Magna, giving back is a cornerstone of our Fair Enterprise Culture. We invest in our people and our communities to make positive social and environmental impacts globally, and right here at home. The Magna Hoedown is part of this legacy of giving and has united York Region residents to support charitable organizations and raise almost $14 million over three decades.
The planning required to deliver the high calibre, successful Magna Hoedown we all know and love is typically a year-long endeavour by our Neighbourhood Network team. Given the considerable lead time needed for an event of this magnitude, as well as the evolving public health guidelines related to the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
As we all continue in the fight against COVID-19, it is more important than ever to support local charities who are providing critical services to our communities. This is what the Magna Hoedown tradition has always been about: neighbours coming together and raising much needed funds for important causes.
“In keeping with this spirit of the Hoedown, I am proud to announce on behalf of Magna and Neighbourhood Network the Magna Hoedown Community Fund benefitting thirty local charities in lieu of this year’s event,” says Swamy Kotagiri, CEO. “Thank you to our Magna employees and the community for your ongoing support of the Magna Hoedown, and for helping us spread joy, not germs throughout the pandemic.”
