We are excited to announce we have secured a GOLD sponsor for our upcoming Raise the Roof for Shelter event on September 23, 2016. The money raised at this fundraiser will support local women's shelters and national violence prevention programs. The shelters we support are Victoria Women’s Transition House, The Cridge Centre for the Family, Margaret Laurence House and Sooke Transition House Society.
We want to send out a big thank you to the following companies for helping make this event possible!
CIBC Wood Gundy is our Gold sponsor!
The Mortgage Group is our silver sponsor for the event! We are so grateful for the professional services of Dustin Lamoureux, you can check out his website here: www.victoriabroker.com
Our generous event location sponsor and contributor to our silent auction is Swans! We will be hosting the event in their Wild Saffron room with access off Wharf Street in Victoria.
Please join us on September 23nd and you'll see why this is becoming an increasingly popular event! It's only 2 hours and is jam packed with delicious appetizers, a cash bar, amazing silent auction, and a grand prize draw. We are also excited Brown's Florist is donating centerpieces for the tables and you'll be able to contribute $25 to take one home with you.
Did you know that Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation! All the money raised through local agents go straight towards the cause and Royal LePage subsidizes the organization's overhead costs. The Modern Real Estate Team donates a portion of each commission earned towards the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
How else do we help? Team member Saira has hiked to Machu Picchu in Peru for the cause in 2015 through the company's Charity Challenge. She committed to raising $5000 to go. Part of the money raised came from the Raise the Roof for Shelter Event in October 2014. She also taught business planning by donation to REALTORS® in her company. The next Royal LePage Charity Challenge is happening in Iceland in the summer of 2017. Saira and her finance Collin have committed to raise $10,000 over the next year and train to walk 90km over 6 days. It won't be easy! But every step on their journey will be one step closer to giving women and children a safe place to escape domestic violence. Charity Challenge participants have to pay their own way there, so that means all the money raised goes towards the cause. We are hoping this Raise the Roof for Shelter fundraiser will be a great head start for their fundraising.
So please join us at our 4th Annual Raise the Roof for Shelter Fundraiser. You can register for the event on our website here: http://modernrev.com/events.html. Space is limited, so we need everyone who plans to attend to pre-register. We will be accepting donations at the door for entry. If you don't have cash at the door, no worries! We take credit cards and cheques made out to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
It's also important to know, if you give a straight donation to the cause (of at least $20), you are eligible for a tax receipt. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation issues tax receipts in February of the following year. We unfortunately cannot give tax receipts for your donation to enter the event, or any silent auction item won.
If you have any questions, you cal always contact us.
