$4,300 raised for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation at stand-up comedy night

Judy Larmand, who is with Royal LePage In Touch Realty in Coldwater, Ontario, held her second ‘Yuk Yuk’s for Shelter’ stand-up comedy night, raising $4,300 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.

Three comedians performed for attendees in support of Rosewood Shelter, which helps local women and children to safely escape domestic violence.

Larmard, who has supported Rosewood Shelter for close to 25 years, joined the shelter’s Board of Directors this past November.

Funds raised at ‘Yuk Yuk’s for Shelter’ will contribute toward Larmand’s participation in the Sahara Desert Challenge for Shelter in November 2019. Each trekker must raise at least $5,000, which will be directed to their local women’s shelter and national programs aimed at breaking the cycle of family violence in Canada.

“Far too many women and children face the difficulty of escaping violence and then healing from the physical and emotional scars of abuse,” says Larmand. “This inspires me to push myself to do all I can to support them on their journey and is the reason it is so important for me to complete the Sahara Desert Challenge for Shelter.”
