CENTURY 21 B.J. Roth Realty Ltd. hosted the 15th Annual Showcase of Celebrities Golf Tournament in late September and helped raised $42,000 for Easter Seals.
This year’s event took place at the Bear Creek Golf Course in Barrie. ON and looked a little different than previous years. To keep everyone safe and distanced. there was no shotgun start or big dinner afterwards. and the number of volunteers had to be significantly reduced. However. the 160 players still enjoyed a beautiful sunny day on the golf course. They had delicious food. a silent auction. and a live raffle.
The silent auction and live raffle raised over $3000. but the B.J. Roth team was amazed with the amount of people who donated to raise funds for essential specialized equipment for Easter Seals kids. With the generous individual donations. they managed to raise enough money to purchase 2 walkers and 2 Splashies (a specialized unit for bathing a child with disabilities) averaging a total of $11.800.
Although. some of CENTURY 21 BJ. Roth Realty Ltd.’s fundraising events had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. the team continuously finds fun. creative. and safe ways to give back. earning them the #1 C21 Easter Seals fundraising company for 6 consecutive years.
“People like Casey MacKay are the reason we continue to support Easter Seals year after year. Easter Seals as an organization makes a difference in the lives of these children with disabilities, and through fundraiser such as this, is able to provide much needed equipment for the kids.” – Theresa Kerr, CENTURY 21 B.J. Roth Realty Ltd.
“COVID truly had an impact on our kids and families and events like today, the fact that we can have it and raise some money, is really going to make a hug impact.” – Kevin Collins, President & CEO, Easter Seals Ontario
