Despite the rain, the REALTOR dragon boat team had a great day on Saturday. They were good Canadians by finishing 4th in the racing but where it really counts - fundraising - they finished first! Our intrepid paddlers raisied approximately $8200, the majority of which goes to the charity of the day - Lions Sick Children Fund. A small portion goes to the Moncton Real Estate Board's "charity of choice" the local schools breakfast programs. This money, plus the money from our upcoming golf tournament, will be added to some other projects we do to help schools in the 4 school districts in our area with their breakfast programs.
Our own Jan Keirstead was the top fund raiser with $1,885 raised. Great work Jan.
This is just one more way your local REALTORS are helping the community by donating TIME and MONEY to worthy causes. Look for us to be helping out at a charity near you.
