Giving back to the community and supporting local causes has always been an essential part of my values both personally and professionally. This year, my fundraising goal is to reach $29,000 as I plan to embark on a 90km trek in Ecuador to raise funds for two organizations - Birchway Niagara (formerly Women's Place of South Niagara) and the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
By supporting Operation $29k, we can help make a significant impact in our local communities and raise awareness about the importance of addressing domestic violence on a national level.
We're excited to share that Carlie and 2 other local Realtors (Dawn Kendrick & Michael Sommer) have teamed up to create a calendar filled with daily prizes for the month of July. Each of us has reached out to the community to gather some amazing prizes totalling in over $10,000 value! You could win anything from a cooking bundle to a boozy basket, or even holiday stays at local attractions.
The calendars are only $10 each and we'll be selling them at the Mama's Market and Purse Bingo. But if you can't make it to those events, feel free to reach out to me directly. We'll be announcing the winners daily in July on the @RoyalLePageNRCRealty Instagram page, as well as contacting winners directly.
Make sure to grab your calendar soon before they sell out! It's going to be a lot of fun and all the proceeds go towards our annual goal. Check out some of the prizes below!

In 2023 when Women’s Place changed its name to Birchway Niagara. While the core of Birchway’s services continue to protect and empower women and children impacted by abuse, the new inclusive name represents a growing understanding that abuse is an issue that impacts everyone. It is also a problem that must be solved by everyone. As Birchway evolves and grows, we will work toward addressing the root causes of abuse, engaging members of our community regardless of their race, age, gender, sexuality or economic status.
RLP Shelter Foundation
Table fees from vendors, entrance fees, and raffle ticket proceeds, will all go towards Operation $29k. Through this initiative, 80% of the funds raised will be used locally to support these organizations. The remaining 20% of the funds will be directed towards national campaigns and education efforts aimed at ending domestic violence.
So the final tally is in.. With 40% more traffic than any other mama's market we've hosted, we had over 550 people through the doors. We raised a whopping $8,846 for Birchway Niagara & the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Just today we collected 30% of our goal for the year!
We did it! I truly cannot thank you enough for your support on this incredible day. The weather was absolutely perfect and you all really showed up with some amazing items and art. Be sure to check out each vendor by clicking on their photos on the scrolling banner below.
