Building Industry Luncheon (BIL)



For over 30 years, Metrus Development Inc. has brought industry leaders together in support of United Way York Region. The annual Building Industry Luncheon (BIL) is a commitment to the community started by co-founders, Alfredo De Gasperis, Honorary BIL Chair, and Marco Muzzo, to improve neighbourhoods across York Region. It is a tradition we are honoured to continue.

The 33rd Annual Building Industry Luncheon (BIL) takes place on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at LeParc Dining and Banquet in Markham (8432 Leslie St.). This year’s keynote speaker is The Honourable Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation.

United Way York Region is grateful to be supported by a thriving and philanthropic community of developers. Under the dynamic leadership of Co-Chairs Jim V. De Gasperis, President and CEO, Condrain Group; Wayne Emmerson, Chairman and CEO, The Regional Municipality of York; and Marc A. Muzzo, President, Pemberton Group the luncheon has grown steadily over the last three decades and consistently surpasses set targets. United Way’s most successful one-day fundraising event, the luncheon is a tribute to the industry’s civic mindedness and commitment to give back to York Region.

Last year’s BIL raised $829,250 for United Way’s community priorities: helping kids be all they can be; moving people from poverty to possibility; and building strong neighbourhoods.
