$2,600 was raised in support of domestic violence prevention and education at the 5th Annual Royal LePage Broker/Owner Fishing Derby, held at Painter’s Lodge in Campbell River, British Columbia.
Event organizer Jim Morris, manager of business development in Western Canada for Royal LePage, along with Royal LePage president and CEO Phil Soper were pleased to welcome 28 participants from Royal LePage brokerages from across Canada for a weekend of fishing, networking, and fundraising for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
Daniel, son of Alex Ocsai, broker/owner at Royal LePage Meadowtowne Realty, had the largest salmon at 22 lbs. Kent Browne, broker/owner of Royal LePage Team Realty pulled in three salmon over two days that weighed in at more than 33 lbs. Regina’s Brin Werrett arrived a few days early and hauled in an enormous Chinook weighing 32 lbs!
Special thanks go to Kent Browne, for auctioning several items at the first evening’s dinner, including a morning of “fishing with Phil Soper” which was won by generous bidder Claudette Edenoste, broker/owner at Royal LePage Merritt Real Estate Services. Space in the 6th annual event, scheduled for August 21-23, 2019, is already 50% sold out.
