Royal LePage Wildrose "Suitcase Party" Fundraiser
Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society Building Fundraiser
On May 3rd, 2019, Royal LePage Wildrose Real Estate hosted it's First Annual "Suitcase Party" Fundraiser at the Pomeroy Inn and Suites, in Olds, for the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society, in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
Currently the MVESS has land that was donated to them a few years ago - but to date it has no building on it. 100 % of the proceeds from the event went to the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society towards their building fund. We are delighted to announce that we raised over $23,500 towards this goal at our event, and another $9500 has come in since, in donations, as a result of it! The final total raised for the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Building Fund, from our First 1st Annual Suitcase Party, is $33,011.87 !!! We want to sincerely thank everyone who helped make the 2019 event a success - either through their generous sponsorship, by donating goods for both the live and silent auctions, those who gave monetary donations and of course to those who bought tickets and came to the event itself! We are so thankful for the contribution you have all made in some way, towards the success of the evening and for the eventual long term difference this will make to those in our area, in need of a safe place to go to, in order to escape domestic violence.
We have already set the date for our next "Suitcase Party" for Thursday, May 7th, 2020. It will be held back at the Pomeroy Inn and Suites - Olds Campus. Planning is already well underway.
