 VICTORIA, BC – A recent fundraiser event, Raise the Roof for Shelter, saw an overwhelming amount of support for local women and raised a whopping $12,000. Domestic abuse cases in Canada remain shockingly high, and this event aims to not only raise funds for local non-profits that help women and children who are faced with this, but it strives to bring this issue to the forefront.

 

The local event is in its 5th year and was founded by Victoria real estate duo Tasha Medve and Saira Waters of the Modern Real Estate Team with Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty. This year’s event was at the Robert Bateman Centre and saw a turnout of more than 100 guests. The event supports four local non-profit organizations including Victoria Women’s Transition House, the Cridge Transition House for Women, Sooke Transition House, and Margaret Laurence House. These organizations support women and children, and provide services including emergency shelters, counselling, and advocacy. 

 

The charity behind this is Royal LePage’s national Shelter Foundation, which has raised more than $24 million since 1998. Tasha and Saira started their initiative, and are with Royal LePage, because of this cause. All money raised at Raise the Roof for Shelter is redirected back to the local charities mentioned in Greater Victoria.

 

“We so appreciate Tasha and Saira’s dedication to this cause.  And so do the hundreds of women and children who have been helped by these funds. We rely on community support to keep our vehicles on the road to get women to appointments and to look for housing, to help pay for women’s legal costs, storage and moving costs, and even

some of the basics like our grocery bills. We could not do what we do without this support to help so many women build violence free lives for themselves and their children,” says Marlene Goley, manager for the Cridge Transition House for Women.

 

While Canada is perceived to be one of the safest and most sought-after nations in the world, most would be shocked to learn that domestic abuse cases are rampant. The recent statistics are staggering. More than two-thirds of all women in Canada personally know someone who has been physically or sexually abused.  And, according to Statistics Canada, on average one Canadian woman is killed every six days by her intimate partner.

 

Tasha and Saira are familiar faces in the community, and they have an unrelenting passion to support local women. Over the past five years their events have brought in more than $28,000 to support vulnerable women and children in Victoria. Beyond this, they donate a portion of their commissions from home sales back to these same non-profits.  

 

“We all know a woman who has been affected by an abusive relationship. Domestic violence is so common yet no one really talks about it. We need events like this so we can support these women and their children who have no where else to turn,” says Saira.

 

“It takes so much courage for a woman to go through something like this and leave an abusive relationship or situation. We need to keep the momentum going with future events and provide the platform to bring this cause to the forefront,” says Tasha.

 

Their plan is to continue the event in 2018 and beyond to keep this awareness and financial support going.  To do this, continued community support is vital. Any individuals or companies interested in either contributing to or attending next year’s event are asked to contact either Tasha or Saira below. Their next step is to secure a venue.
