“Jennifer and the Parkhill Events team are truly part of the IWK Foundation family. During their planning and management of The Kent Great Big Dig for the IWK, their compassion for the IWK and the patients it serves always shines through. This commitment ensures the event’s tremendous success year and after – to raise much-needed funds to help purchase priority equipment for the IWK Health Centre. Thank you for all you do to ensure excellence in care for Maritime women, children and youth right here at home! We are so fortunate to have you as part of our team!”

“It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Parkhill Events. I have worked with Jennifer Parkhill and her team for the last four years on Canada’s Great Kitchen Party; a national culinary competition which takes place in 11 cities across Canada. Parkhill has consistently proven that they possess the experience and knowledge necessary to plan and execute a successful event. They are extremely reliable, creative, and upholds a high standard of customer service. Their attention to detail and ability to troubleshoot and work under pressure makes Parkhill Events one of the best event managers I have worked with in my over 22 years in the industry. As the national manager overseeing Canada’s Great Kitchen Party in Halifax, I take a lot of comfort knowing that when I walk into the city on event day that Jennifer and her team are not only ready but I know will execute one of the best run events across the country. It has been a pleasure working with Jennifer and her team and I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to execute a seamlessly run event.”

Lisa Pasin | ComLinks Events & Marketing | President & CEO

“In 2016 the Hockey Canada Foundation brought our signature fundraising event, the HCF Gala & Golf, to Halifax and I had a pleasure of working with Jennifer and her team to bring our vision to life. Parkhill Events was so easy to work with, and not only delivered a seamless event, but put my mind at ease from day one that no detail would be missed. Any company can put together a critical path and a décor plan, but where Jennifer and her team set themselves apart, is their ability to develop a personal relationship with their clients. I believe this unique quality truly allowed us to work together so well, and trust each other to create such a magical evening. Three years later I’m still in touch with Jennifer and would work with her again anytime we have an event on the East Coast.”

D’Arcy Hutcheson | Hockey Canada | Manager, Events and Properties
