Charity auction raises $66,500

Royal LePage Gale Real Estate and Royal LePage Team Realty team up for record-breaking fundraiser

Broker/owner Kent Browne and the teams at Royal LePage Gale Real Estate and Royal LePage Team Realty in Ottawa hosted their annual charity auction on May 12, and what a day it was! The event raised an unprecedented $66,500 in support of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation for women’s cancer services and research, which shattered last year’s tally by nearly $20,000.

Kent Browne and agent John O’Neill served as co-auctioneers for the live auction, which showcased highly-coveted items including everything from dinners served in your home, boat rides, event tickets, homemade fudge and a fully-stocked wine refrigerator. A silent auction was also held featuring items generously donated by the sales team, staff and supporters of the long-standing event. The efforts of both brokerages and generous bidders were amplified through social media with the hashtags #RLPDenimDay and #EndCancer trending throughout the day.

The agents of Royal LePage Gale Real Estate and Royal LePage Team also generously donate to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. “Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is cornerstone to our culture at Royal LePage,” says Kent Browne. “It’s heart-lifting to rally people around great causes such as these.”

Kudos to Kent Browne and the teams at both brokerages.
