Royal LePage Binder Real Estate raised $30,000 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation at their charity golf tournament, held this year at the Pointe West Golf Club in Amherstburg, Ontario. 100 per cent of funds raised were directed to local women’s shelter, Hiatus House.
Speaking at the tournament dinner, Heather Johnson-Dobransky, assistant clinical director at Hiatus House, reflected on the impact of this annual event. “Over the last four years, Royal LePage Binder Real Estate has raised more than $100,000 for Hiatus House at their golf tournament alone. This financial contribution, along with generous donations from Royal LePage sales representatives, has allowed Hiatus House to completely renovate our existing playground structure at the shelter. The proceeds of this year’s tournament will go toward additional security features, such as fencing and cameras, as well as a gazebo area where our clients can relax. Royal LePage Binder’s dedication to our clients is deeply valued and greatly appreciated.”
“Aside from a wonderful day of golf, at the end of the day, it’s all about generating critical funds to help those escaping domestic violence,” said Fran Grebenc, committee member and Royal LePage Binder Real Estate sales representative. “It truly warms our hearts to see how much we raise for women and children in our community when they need it most.”
Committee members extend their thanks to all their sponsors, volunteers, golfers and supporters and look forward to next year’s event. Committee members include: Frank Binder, Fred Shaw, Fred Binder, Michael Plante, Michelle Lewis, Mike Coffin, Wendy Coffin, Carol Irwin, Helen Almas, Fran Grebenc, Jill Winegelaar and Ian Baird.
