2015 Winner

Bentall Kennedy
North Hill Centre
Cake Decorating for Charity

The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Foundation is proud to present the prestigious Canadian Community Support Award to Bentall Kennedy for their outstanding charitable campaign at the North Hill Centre, located in Calgary, Alberta. Bentall Kennedy received accolade for their “Great Calgary Cake Off” competition, which provided the local community the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for a number of charities. Eight local teams, each representing a different charity, competed in a cake-decorating contest for the chance to win a $10,000 donation. The competition enlisted the community to vote to determine the winner, which heightened awareness for all participating charities. At the conclusion of the contest, the winning team’s charity, Cystric Fibrosis Canada, received the generous donation. As the partnering charity for this winning award, Cystic Fibrosis will receive $5,000 USD from the ICSC Foundation.
