FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hamilton, ON (December 19, 2018) – Many children throughout Hamilton and Burlington will have a brighter holiday season this year, thanks to the generosity of those who attended and contributed to the REALTORS® 4 Kids Charity Auction held on November 15, 2018.
The REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) raised $76,525 for the 900CHML/Y108/Fresh Radio 953 Children’s Fund through the Auction, which was held for its 30th year.
“This goes to show that great things can happen when REALTORS® come together to support the children in our community,” said Jack Loft, RAHB President. “The support our members and community show every year is amazing.”
The Children’s Fund campaign began in 1976 as a charitable initiative to help raise money for disadvantaged children during the holiday season. Proceeds from the partnership between RAHB and the CORUS radio stations now support many children’s charities throughout the Hamilton and Burlington areas year-round.
“As a REALTOR® and a member of RAHB, I am proud to help the community in which I live and work,” added Loft.
The Children’s Fund offers assistance to over 40 different charities each year. During the last 30 years of partnership, the REALTORS® 4 Kids Charity Auction has raised $1,165,525 making the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington the Children’s Fund’s single largest contributor.
