A sell-out crowd of 300 attended a Yuk Yuk’s comedy night organized by Judy Larmand of Royal LePage In Touch Realty in Coldwater, ON.
A total of $6,800 was raised for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, in support of Larmand’s participation in the Iceland Challenge for Shelter. To be eligible to participate in this event scheduled for July 2017, each trekker must raise at least $5,000, which will be directed to their local women’s shelter and national programs aimed at breaking the cycle of family violence in Canada. In Larmand’s community, La Maison Rosewood will benefit from her efforts.
“It was standing-room only and the three comedians who performed knocked it out of the park,” said Larmand. “But seeing our community come together in support of our local shelter to benefit women and children escaping family violence was by far the best part of the evening.”
