(December 22, 2014 – Hamilton) Members, sponsors and friends of the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) showed their generosity and community spirit by raising over $48,500 for the 900CHML/Y108/ 953 Fresh FM Children’s Fund. The funds were raised at the recent RAHB Charity Auction & Social held annually to support The Children’s Fund.
“This auction shows the great things that happen when REALTORS® and the community come together,” said Aileen Araujo, Co-Chair of this year’s Charity Auction Task Force. “The support we received was amazing.”
Proceeds from the partnership between RAHB and the CORUS radio stations continue to support many local children’s charities throughout Hamilton and Burlington area year round. Over the 26 years of the partnership, RAHB’s annual auction has raised over $838,000 for the charity, making RAHB its single largest contributor.
“The money raised through this auction helps so many organizations which support children and children’s causes,” added Marlene Vieira Leslie, Co-Chair of this year’s Charity Auction. “We are proud to help the community in which we work and live.”
The Children’s Fund Campaign began in 1976 as a charitable initiative to help raise money for disadvantaged children during the holiday season. The Children’s Fund offers assistance to over 30 different charities each year.
