Friday December 19 2014 – Crown Leasing (of property developer Crown Group) has held its annual Christmas celebration inviting landlords and tenants to enjoy the festive season in the spirit of charity.

The Christmas event held at Crown Group’s award-winning Top Ryde City Living development last week attracted more than 50 landlords and tenants from the Crown Leasing community.

Embodying the spirit of Christmas, each guest donated a non-perishable item of food to be used in hampers at the Annual Exodus Christmas Day Lunch in Ashfield.


The Exodus Christmas Day Lunch attracts more than 1000 homeless and disadvantaged people and involves over 300 volunteers who give their time to ensure that the less fortunate can enjoy a Christmas Day lunch.


A total of four food hampers were donated after Crown Group matched the number of food items donated by guests.


Crown Leasing Senior Property Manager Anthony Caudullo said the event was a tribute to the generosity of the Crown Leasing community.


“Crown Leasing has enjoyed a stellar year and it’s rewarding to see the Crown Leasing community at Top Ryde come together for a great cause. I’d like to thank everyone who gave generously,” he said.


Crown Leasing exclusively manages apartments built by Australian property developer Crown Group and has successfully leased more than 150 apartments in the past 12 months.
Sydney Kings’ Basketball players and Crown Leasing tenants Kendrick Perry, Cody Ellis and Tom Garlepp were special guests and prizes included a signed Sydney Kings’ jersey and two tickets to a Sydney Kings’ game.


Popular dessert chef and restaurant owner Adriano Zumbo donated sweet treats, macarons and a signed copy of his latest cookbook ‘Zumbarons’.


Top Ryde City Living resident Tony Guerrero said he was delighted to be involved in a charitable cause in the lead up to Christmas.


“I am proud to be a part of a community that comes together to give back,” said Mr Guerrero.


“It was a great opportunity to meet my neighbours and get to know one another,” he said.


Mr Guerrero has lived at Top Ryde City Living for nine months.
