Our First Garage Sale A Great Success!

This past Saturday, over 100 Royal LePage offices across Canada held a Garage Sale in support of the Royal LePage Shelter foundation. Here in Collingwood, this event proved to be both a lot of work, a lot of fun and in the end was a very successful fundraiser for our first effort.
We raised over $1,650 with 100% of these proceeds going to support the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation which supports the needs of women and children that are the victims of family violence. Proceeds from our local event will go to support My Friend's House.
On behalf of those of us with Royal LePage Collingwood, I would like to thank the many clients, friends and the public-at large that supported our efforts with their donations of unwanted clothing and other items as well as for their purchases. In addition, a word of thanks goes out to Tim Hortons who provided free coffee and donuts, to Boston Pizza for their donation of pizza for our hard working volunteers and also to Burl's Creek Family Event Park for supplying tables for the sale.
This was truly a fun event for a great cause. Fundraising events such as this are a tremendous way for we as REALTORS® to give back to the very community(s) we make our livings from and the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment we receive is reward enough for all the hard work. Thanks again to all of you that participated in helping us make this day the success that it was.
