Re/Max of Western Canada’s silent and live auctions at the annual Breakfast of Champions, held during the company’s 27th Annual Conference in Edmonton recently, raised $52,962 to support Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals.
“Re/Max affiliates have truly embraced this worthy cause,” says Marie Sheppy, senior co-ordinator, corporate affairs (Children’s Miracle Network liaison). “This is especially evident when we gather annually to celebrate our successes as an organization and as individuals.” Stories of children recovering and receiving successful treatment were shared with more than 600 Re/Max delegates in attendance. Edmonton Mayor Stephan Mandel proclaimed it “Miracle City Day” for the Edmonton Re/Max sales associates.
Re/Max River City in Edmonton was recognized for being the top contributing office for the Stollery Children’s Hospital for the fourth consecutive time.
Re/Max Kelowna and Re/Max Kelowna Westside real estate agents gathered for their own annual Live & Silent Auction at the Rotary Centre for the Performing Arts in Kelowna recently. The event raised $45,335 for B.C. Children’s Hospitals. In 2009 Re/Max Kelowna was once again recognized as the top contributing office in the Re/Max of Western Canada organization.
Re/Max of Western Canada is the largest contributing region in the entire Re/Max organization. Sales associates across Canada helped raise more than $3.5 million for the Children’s Miracle Network 14 member hospitals and foundations in 2009, helping the 2.6 million children who are treated each year. Since 1992, Canadian Re/Max sales associates have raised more than $35.5 million.
