Dena Sicard, Jane Thuet and Sue Driver of Royal LePage Frank Real Estate in Whitby, ON continued their fundraising journey in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, raising another $3,300 towards their participation in the Iceland Challenge for Shelter. The funds were raised at a Euchre tournament, held March 25.
To participate in the Iceland Challenge for Shelter, taking place in July 2017, each trekker must raise at least $5,000 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Sicard, Thuet and Driver have instead set an impressive team goal of $30,000. Funds raised by the trio will be directed to the The Denise House, Y’s Wish Shelter of YWCA Durham, and national violence prevention programs funded in part by the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
“We’re so thankful to all who came out to play in the tournament…to the Oshawa Seniors Centre for hosting us, and to our volunteers and manager Debbi Guislain, as well as to our generous Broker/Owner Rick Siwek for covering the majority of the expenses,” said Sicard. “We look forward to reaching our goal and helping make it safer for women and their children to walk away from domestic violence.”
