4th Annual National Garage Sale for Shelter

  On Saturday May 12th, 2012, myself and my associates at the local Royal LePage offices collectively - All Real Estate Services, Locations North & Trinity Realty will be participating in the 4th Annual National Garage Sale for Shelter, in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.

  Our offices are hosting a Garage Sale at 499 First St, Collingwood from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on that day (May 12th) and it is certain to be a great event that will “drum up” lots of people and hopefully money – all for a worthwhile cause! Face painting, balloons, entertainment, a bake sale, food – oh and not to mention the garage sale itself! Lots of fun for the whole family!
  We are asking for your support in the way of a donation to be used as part of our Silent Auction. A voucher or a gift certificate to be used towards local goods and/or services would be a great idea or you might prefer to make a cash donation to The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. We would be happy to promote your business and involvement in all of our advertising!   All the proceeds of the auction will be donated directly to our local Women and Children’s Shelter – My Friends House.
  If you would like to participate in the Garage Sale, yourself, you can purchase a table for $25 to sell any unwanted or unused items from around your home. Come spend the day with us in support of a great cause and get of that stuff you have been wanting to dispose of.
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women and children’s shelters and violence prevention and education programs. We believe in the importance of giving back to the very community we as REALTORS® make our livings from.  As
such, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company to have its own charitable Foundation. Attached please find information regarding the Shelter Foundation. At last year’s sale, Royal LePage nationwide raised an astounding $ 425,000 - the largest charity Garage Sale ever held in Canada.  Locally, we raised $ 3,000 for My Friends House – and we hope to surpass that amount this year!
We certainly appreciate any help you could provide. Should you require further information, please contact our Garage Sale Coordinator Caitlin at 519-599-2136 or contact myself
