Hamilton, ON (December 11, 2019) – On November 14, at the REALTORS® 4 Kids Charity Auction, over 400 attendees helped the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) raise $87,500 for the 900CHML/Y108/Energy 953 Children’s Fund.

“Year after year, REALTORS®, partners and community members come together to support children in Hamilton-Burlington,” said RAHB President Bob Van de Vrande. “As a REALTOR® and a member of RAHB, I am proud to help the community in which I live and work.”

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.

“It was a fun-filled evening for an absolutely wonderful cause,” said RAHB CEO Carol Ann Burrell. “I’m new to the Hamilton community, and could tell from this event that Hamilton understands the need and comes together when needed.”

The Children’s Fund offers assistance to over 40 different charities each year. During the last 31 years of partnership, the REALTORS® 4 Kids Charity Auction has raised more than $1.2 million, making the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington the single-largest contributor to the Children’s Fund.
