We would like to offer local business the opportunity to be associated with our biggest national initiative and work in partnership with Royal LePage Connect to raise money in support of women and children in our community.

On May 10, 2014, our office is hosting the National Garage Sale for Shelter with all proceeds going to support our local women’s shelter. This event brings together local residents and real estate agents for one day of fundraising through donating household items for a large community garage sale. In the last two years the event has raised over $435,000 nationally and generated significant media attention.

Our office’s garage sale will be taking place at 335 Bayly St. W in Ajax. We are looking for partners who are interested in becoming a sponsor or providing donations. We would also appreciate your help promoting our event by posting a flyer.

Becoming a partner will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to ending family violence. It will also provide a powerful marketing vehicle to reach an enthusiastic group of local residents. Please indicate your interest on the attached form.

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has raised more than $10 million to support women and children living in shelters across Canada. Through agent commission contributions and the fundraising activities of the Royal LePage network, we are helping to provide a safe haven and new beginnings to more than 30,000 women and children each year. To break the cycle of violence, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation also supports long-term violence prevention and education programs.  All funds raised by Royal LePage offices remain in their local community and because Royal LePage pays the costs of administration, 100% of all money and effort goes toward this important cause.

We look forward to welcoming you as a partner to help make our efforts a success. Together we can make a difference!
