Royal LePage Burloak Real Estate Services celebrated its year-round commitment to supporting Halton Women’s Place via the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and the Carpenter Hospice with a donation of $42,000. Funds were raised at the brokerage’s annual charity golf tournament and Halloween Chili Bowl event and through agent commission donations.
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and putting an end to domestic violence. Since 1998, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has raised more than $27 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners.
“I am extremely proud to work for a company with the vision to build and nurture a charitable foundation and embed such a strong culture of giving back within their business,” said JoAnn Landry, broker/president, Royal LePage Burloak Real Estate Services and recipient of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation’s 2012 National Philanthropist of the Year Award. “As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation this year, I would like to thank all of our sales representatives and employees for their support and generosity over the years. Their commitment to our cause ensures that we can continue to support two essential charitable organizations within our community.”
