The date of June 9th 2016 has taken on new significance for Landrex owner and CEO Larry Andrews – it was on this date that the Canadian Government awarded his company, Landrex Inc., with ‘Canada’s Volunteer Award (CVA).’ Landrex won in the category of ‘business leader,’ within the prairie region. This particular category of the CVA’s honors businesses that, “demonstrate social responsibility,” and, “support the well-being of their communities.”
This award couldn’t be more fitting for Larry. He believes that success in business should go hand-in-hand with helping others. Larry is constantly engaged in some sort of giving. Whether it be sponsoring sport teams, tournaments, and events, or donating land (to name but a few), he is truly always giving of himself. This has fostered a culture of altruism amongst his management team and staff. Those who work for Larry are as thoughtful and passionate as he is when it comes to giving back.
Larry being given this award was itself the result of an altruistic act. Liz O’Neil, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Clubs / Big Brothers Big Sisters (BGCBigs), put together the award’s extensive application package on Larry’s behalf. Because of Liz, Larry was acknowledged on a national level for the work he and Landrex have done. Liz and Larry have been collaborating for 26 years! – always with the goal of helping others. Their two largest events are the annual Charity Golf Tournament and the Dream Street Home Lottery.

Thank you Liz for the nomination! We couldn’t have won without you!
