The Manitoba Real Estate Association’s annual golf tournament in Winnipeg recently raised funds to benefit people who need safe shelter.
CREA past president Laura Leyser hosted the Brian Collie Memorial Shelter Challenge at one of the holes. Her plan raised $ 3,830 with draw prizes including a luxury outdoor grill and a Bose stereo unit.
In April, MREA’s former CEO Brian M. Collie died suddenly. As a show of respect for his life and recognizing his commitment to giving to the less fortunate, MREA president Roberta Weiss announced that the popular golf tournament would be renamed in Collie’s honour, in perpetuity.
MREA past president Dan Wachniak demonstrated his professional auctioning skills and drove up the bids to $ 500 for a free lunch with Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman. Bowman appeared as a giant standing cutout display of himself, which was a hit for everyone who lined up to be photographed with the popular mayor.
The tournament raised more than $ 21,000 for the Manitoba Real Estate Association Shelter Foundation.
