Listed below are a few of the of local organizations, charities, and events which have benefited from ticketing donations by the Leon’s Centre and ASM Global in the last month alone.

In the past few years, Leon’s Centre has also had the opportunity to involve itself with many large scale community events through organizations within the Kingston area. These events have been huge successes for the organizers but at the same time have demonstrated that Leon’s Centre holds an important place in the community as more than just a home for sports and entertainment.
Groups we have worked with include:
- CFB Kingston
- Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce
- Heart and Stroke Foundation
- Limestone Learning Foundation
- Easter Seals
- Canadian Blood Services
- Addiction & Mental Health Services – Kingston Frontenac Lennox & Addington
- KEYS Job Centre, and many more!

All 22,000 square-feet of the Leon’s Centre is committed to the effort of caring for our environment by developing methods to reduce, reuse and recycle in our everyday routines. Employees of ASM Global and the City of Kingston, as well as city officials, have engaged in a continuous commitment to be environmentally conscious by implementing green practices into facility operation.
The venue is located on a former brownfield site. Bike racks and dispersed parking are provided to encourage alternate means of transportation. The centre has a recycling room and ‘green’ housekeeping products will be used in the maintenance of the facility. Water use reduction technology is also incorporated in all washrooms throughout the facility. Visitors and residents can obtain information on all LEED credits achieved within the centre through an interactive kiosk installed in the Leon’s Centre, located in the Concourse, level 1 beside the Box Office.
All new City of Kingston facilities, like the centre, are designed to achieve at least a LEED® Silver rating, and can expect significant savings in energy costs.
The official adoption of this LEED® approach puts Kingston on the leading-edge of sustainable development and ensures that new City buildings maximize energy efficiency, provide the highest quality of indoor working environment and minimize any building’s burden on the natural environment and long-term operating budgets. The progressive features combine to provide Kingstonians with a world-class sports and entertainment venue that minimizes its impact on our environment and provides a healthy indoors environment while keeping energy costs to a minimum.
