Royal LePage Frank Real Estate sales representatives, Daniela Rodrigues and Sue Driver, recently raised $15,300 for their local women’s shelter, The Denise House, via a February calendar lottery. 

After collecting donations from fellow Royal LePage professionals and local businesses, Rodrigues and Driver sold over a thousand tickets within their community. They hosted a Facebook live event each day in February to draw a winning number for that day’s prize.

“We could not have done this without the support and generosity of all our incredible sponsors and each and every person who purchased a ticket,” said Rodrigues. 

“We are truly overwhelmed with the support that we received,” added Driver. “Not everyone could be a winner but every ticket purchased will make a huge difference for women and children seeking safety from domestic violence!”
