Four Calgary real estate professionals recently raised $16,652 to make a difference for local women and children affected by family violence. Marta Raczkowska of Royal LePage Solutions and Wayne Nelson, Chris Pitman and Dave Shulz of Royal LePage Benchmark teamed up to host a Night in Morocco fundraising event.
Their 150 guests were treated to a traditional Moroccan meal catered by the University of Calgary and tea service and décor provided by the local Moroccan community. A belly dancing performance had many inspired to give the moves a try, while silent and live auctions contributed to the fundraising.
The evening’s theme was a nod to the group’s participation in the upcoming Sahara Desert Challenge for Shelter. In November, 120 Royal LePage professionals will hike 100 km across the Sahara Desert. To be eligible to participate, each trekker must raise at least $5,000 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
Next, the group plans to organize a Walk to Lake Louise from June 3 to 8.
