Find your home, and everything you need, at Westman Village

Monday, September 10th, 2018

Ottilie Coldbeck, Intern

 

Good wine, great company and beautiful surroundings – what more could you ask for? On a beautiful summer evening, Brookline hosted an exclusive paint and wine evening at Westman Village to build awareness for the new resort-style community in Calgary. Westman Village, Jayman BUILT’s (Jayman) much-anticipated lake-side community boasts a one-of-a-kind amenities centre, offering its residents access to exclusive dining, wellness, entertainment and education facilities.

 

 

Starting with a tour of the three-level Village Centre, featuring a movie theatre, wine cellar, pool, gym facilities and more, guests were given VIP access to the exclusive “heartbeat of the village”, experiencing the benefits offered to those who call Westman Village home. The tour, led by a Westman Village concierge, allowed for guests to experience the beauty of the amenities centre and ask questions regarding the facilities and the diverse housing options available in the lakeside community.

 

 

As a community dedicated to providing housing and amenities for people of all walks of life, from the estate condos to active adult living and choice leases, Westman Village looks to provide its residents everything they will ever need right outside their door – bringing the inner-city lifestyle and amenities to suburban Calgary.

Following the tour, guests enjoyed an artist-led painting event, along with locally sourced appetizers and a selection of wines from J. Webb for a truly immersive event.

 

 

Brookline conducted event logistics and influencer outreach to secure attendees. The event resulted in over 35 social media posts with over 50,000 impressions – and of course, 13 artistic masterpieces!

 

 

Brookline is thrilled to have coordinated this event with Westman Village and continues to assist in its public relations efforts. We couldn’t possibly include all the amazing features of Westman Village in this blog post or you’d be reading all day, so we encourage you to visit and see it for yourself!

Brookline Calls for #SwiftAction Against Child Abuse

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Dakota Sandquist, Assistant Account Specialist

 

Earlier this month Sheldon Kennedy’s documentary, Swift Current, launched at the Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival in Toronto, followed shortly by a national airing on Global TV. Brookline was honoured to support Kennedy and the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre in advance of and following the debut of the documentary.

Through social media outreach and a national media relations campaign, Brookline called for action as Swift Current encouraged Canadians to speak up for children and families who had been impacted by abuse.

In the weeks leading up to the premiere, Brookline successfully executed a social media takeover that included educating followers on child abuse prevention, documented emotional accounts of the film’s impact on others and pushed out the trending hashtag #SwiftAction, which urged supporters to take action in ending child abuse.

Through media relations efforts, Brookline also supported Kennedy and film director Joshua Rofé as they conducted interviews with nationally acclaimed media outlets, such as Globe and Mail, ET Canada, Breakfast Television and Global TV.

An important step to ending child abuse, Brookline would like to applaud the efforts made by Kennedy and Rofé to speak up for those who often times do not have a voice. The Brookline team is honoured to have supported this important mandate and the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre.
