REALTORS® on the Run Scavenger hunt and silent auction

The annual fundraiser for the Kingston Youth Shelter was a bit different this year! Taking place over two days in October, REALTORS® on the Run was a fun, team oriented scavenger hunt, that allowed for social distancing and had some amazing prizes! A silent auction on Facebook at the same time allowed those who were unable to participate in the road rally the chance to get involved and show their support! KAREA Members did not disappoint and both events were a great success

The final total raised from the 2020 REALTORS® on the Run Scavenger Hunt and Facebook Silent Auction was $12,070.00!

The cheque was presented by Mary Ambrose, PR Task Force Chair to Ruth Woodman, the Executive Officer of The Kingston Youth Shelter on November 26th 2020.

Teaming up with Tommy’s Kingston for ‘KAREA Cares’, Members donated money to purchase meals prepared by Tommy’s staff and then deliver them to community members in need. The goal was 1000 meals in 10 days.
In total $7850 was donated resulting in 1120 meals being provided to those in need!
