Raise the Roof for Women’s Shelter 2023
September 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
On September 21st, 2023, from 6-9 PM, we will be hosting our 9th annual Raise The Roof for Women’s Shelter fundraiser at John Fluevog Shoes in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. After a 3 year hiatus of in person events, our team is thrilled to be bringing our community together again for this incredible cause.
The Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs. Each year the foundation helps more than 30,000 women and children who are served by these shelters and support programs. With help from sponsors like you, The Modern Real Estate Team has raised over $228,000 to date! The money raised at our event stays in our community to fund four local women’s shelters: the Victoria Women’s Transition House, The Cridge Centre for the Family, the Sooke Transition House Society and Margaret Laurence House. These funds are crucial for shelters which give women a safe place to escape domestic violence. Together we are breaking the cycle of violence and creating a stronger community.
Our Raise the Roof for Women’s Shelter event is a catered, cocktail-style reception with guests including clients, community members and local business owners. We raise funds at the event with our entry by donation collection, drink ticket purchases and our fantastic silent auction. Additionally, invitees can enjoy shoe shopping for a worthy cause, with John Fluevog donating 50% of the sale proceeds at the event.
Thank you to our sponsors; we couldn’t do this event without community-minded businesses like the ones below.
