Royal LePage Supreme Realty in Toronto, ON recently hosted 100 guests on a charity boat cruise, raising $14,000 in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and the Children’s Breakfast Club.
“After forming a brokerage social committee earlier this year, our first order of business was to determine how we could deepen our commitment to giving back,” said organizer and Royal LePage Supreme Realty sales representative Gary Fraga. “The idea of a boat cruise was born and with the support of Scotiabank, we were thrilled to be able to donate all proceeds raised to two great charities.” In choosing the event beneficiaries, Royal LePage Supreme Realty broker/owner Manny Andrade remarked that “supporting the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and the Children’s Breakfast Club will ensure that the communities we work and live in remain healthy and vibrant for generations to come.”
Andrade, Fraga and fellow committee members Stephanie Pacheco, Jessica Meireis, Britney Andrade, Melissa DaCunha, and Tania Vieira welcomed representatives from both organizations to speak on the cruise, both of whom shared heartfelt stories highlighting the critical importance of the support they receive.
“Our industry can be tough,” said Fraga. “We often have many rough days but it’s important for us to remember that many people in our backyards are really struggling on a daily basis and are in dire need of our help. Our communities give us so much; it’s both humbling and satisfying to give back.”
