In spite of record setting rainfall this spring, HomeLife Benchmark Realtors turned out on June 15 in monsoon-like weather raising $42,000 at our 16th Annual Charity Golf Classic in support of Canuck Place.
The tournament, held at Northview, featured 18 holes of golf and a barbecue as well as contests, sponsorships, a live and silent auction, and a raffle for $5,000. The event once again sold out with 144 golfers participating from 15 different HomeLife offices in the lower mainland.
Half of those who hit the greens were Realtors, while others are family and supporters of the cause, including Vancouver Canucks Alumni team members and our sponsors including: Valley Traffic Systems, Cyberscape Media, WrapGuys, Benchmark Group of Companies, Pillar to Post Home Inspectors, Investors Group, RBC, CIBC Wood Gundy, Ultra Digital Printing and Signs, The Keg, TSN Team 1040, Acura of Langley, KTW Construction, Coleman Technologies, Kane Shannon & Weiler, Kary Movers, Mr. Home Inspector and G&F Financial Group.
When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, parents are impacted by the 24-hour care they provide for their child. The very real stresses incurred by these families include financial pressures, relationship challenges, fatigue, distress and increasing acute-care needs which impact mental and physical health and overall quality of life for BC families. HomeLife Realtors are committed to helping these families. As a broker, owner Rick Dubord says, “It’s all about the kids.” Over the past 30 years, HomeLife Realtors have raised more than $600,000 for local charities, groups, and schools with our annual charity golf tournament.
