Since 2001, Royal LePage Gale Real Estate has been participating in a yearly charity auction breakfast to raise funds in the fight against Breast Cancer. Joined in 2006 by Royal LePage Team Realty the annual event continues to raise funds for not only the Ottawa Breast Health Centre, but multiple charities, including, but not limited to: Camp Trillium (Camp for child cancer patients and families), CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario – Oncology Unit) and The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
All auction items are donated by the sales representatives and staff at both Royal LePage Gale Real Estate and Royal LePage Team Realty, along with some great sponsors, a BIG thank you to Mortgage Brokers Ottawa, TD Canada Trust, The Ottawa Wine & Food Festival, PODS Ottawa, FrogBox & Colour By Design for their support and fantastic auction donations. As always we thank our Sales Representatives, Brokers and Staff as they amaze us every year with their generous donations and purchases. The event raises funds through both silent and live auctions. Two of our famous in-house auctioneers, Kent Browne, Owner and John O’Neil, Sales Representative share the auctioneering duties and the sales team and staff purchase incredible items in support of charity. Sample items up for bid include: “Elenor’s Famous Fudge”, electronics, parties and dinners prepared and served by the participants or managers, event and festival tickets, cottage weekend escapes, a fully stocked wine fridge and even “power of sale” listings”!
