Marty Muis Promise Scholarship – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton & Burlington

Last night, Queenston on Centennial’s Marty Muis was honoured by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton & Burlington for his dedication and contributions to their Annual Golf Classics.  As a result of the tournaments’ success, the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization was able to redirect funds from the tournaments fundraising to make an investment in their annual Promise Scholarship Program.  This program has allowed for ten local youth to be awarded $2000 scholarships.

In tribute to Marty’s long time dedication to the Agency, its value and mission, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton & Burlington named one of this year’s scholarships in his honour.  Last evening Marty presented the “Marty Muis Promise Scholarship” to Hassan, a grade 7 student from Hamilton.

Congratulations Hassan on this wonderful achievement and thank you Marty for your long time dedication and support to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Agency!

Marty Muis – 25 Years of Service!

Queenston on Centennial would like to congratulate Marty Muis on 25 years of service!  We would like to extend our gratitude for his hard work and dedication over the years.

For those of you who don’t know Marty, he started as a Sales Representative with Queenston in February of 1987.  Since then, he has worked passionately on building solid relationships with his customers.  Always going above and beyond for his clients, Marty values each customer as a friend and has established many relationships both in and out of the dealership.  In fact, because of these relationships, 100% of his business is from repeat customers and referrals.  If you have ever had the pleasure of doing business with Marty, you know for certain that he is a man of his word, and that you can always depend on his honesty. 

In addition to his years of service at Queenston, Marty has been, and continues to be, an active member in our community.  For the last 12 years, he has been a supporter of the Debra Foundation, a charity Marty became involved with through one of his customers. The Debra Foundation is a voluntary, non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing support for families who are affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare genetic skin disorder that causes blisters and shearing of the skin.  On Thursday July 5th, 2012, the 14th Annual Charity Golf Classic is being held in support of Debra Canada and will be taking place at Peninsula Lake Golf Club. This year, Marty will once again be the Tournament’s Master of Ceremonies.  It should also be mentioned that Queenston will be providing a new car for the “Hole in One” contest.  If you would like more information on this Golf Classic or information on Debra Canada, click here.

In addition to his involvement with Debra Canada, Marty is also active with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton and Burlington.  For the last 5 years, he has been part of the organization committee for their annual Golf Tournament, which raises thousands of dollars each year.  This year’s Tournament is being held on Tuesday June 19, 2012 at Crosswinds Golf & Country Club, please click here for details.

In his time away from selling cars, Marty likes to spend time at his condo in Isla Del Sol, Florida.  He also enjoys spending time on the links as often as possible, or he can be found boating or sea-dooing on Lake Ontario.

Again, thank you Marty!  We honour your 25 years of exemplary service, and look forward to many more.
