More than 700 children in the Coquitlam, BC area showed up on Good Friday to look for 40,000 hidden chocolate eggs at the 7th Annual Burke Mountain Community Easter Egg Hunt, organized by Royal LePage West Real Estate Services sales representative, Rebecca Permack.
“Despite the forecast for miserable rain, the sun shone down on us again this year, and not only did everyone have an awesome time, we also raised more than $10,000 for the cause,” said Permack. “We’re incredibly grateful to our volunteers and to our wonderful community who gave so generously in support of our local shelter. The services they provide to women and children seeking an escape from violence are critical and we feel honored to help in any way we can.”
100% of proceeds will be directed to Tri-City Transitions and the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation’s national violence prevention fund.
