Staff and REALTORS® of Royal LePage True North Realty recently presented a $17,000 donation to representatives of the Fort McMurray Family Crisis Society. The funds were raised at the 14th annual Slo-Pitch Tournament in support of local shelter, Unity House.
This popular tournament brought hundreds of local athletes to the Syncrude Athletic Park in Fort McMurray, AB over the Father’s Day weekend, with residents coming out to watch and support over 21 teams competing in four divisions. “The baseball community gives their full support to our tournament each year and they believe in the cause,” said Jill Kerrigan, event organizer and Associate Broker of Royal LePage True North Realty.
Throughout the year, Royal LePage True North Realty hosts several community initiatives to help raise awareness and funding for the Fort McMurray Family Crisis Society via the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Funds raised at this year’s Slo-Pitch Tournament will go toward building the new Unity House which will feature a women and children’s shelter as well as a sexual assault and abuse healing centre.
