Fundraising Efforts of CENTURY 21 Office Helps Send Kids to Camp


CENTURY 21 Canada has been a proud supporter of Easter Seals for over 30 years. Since 1979, CENTURY 21 Canada has supported Easter Seals by raising millions of dollars for families living with disabilities across the country.

It’s great to hear stories like the one below and know that many CENTURY 21 Sales Professionals are getting out into their communities to raise funds for children with disabilities and Easter Seals.

This story was originally posted by Easter Seals on the CENTURY 21 Kids to Camp website. One of our offices in Pembroke, Ontario, CENTURY 21 Neville Realty has had an incredible year and hopefully this inspires others to give back to their community.

With the support of a strong team driven by the passion to support a worthy cause, it is incredible what a group can accomplish. When CENTURY 21 Kids to Camp started in 2008 CENTURY 21 Neville Realty, of Ontario, got involved right away. Serving smaller markets, away from events like The Easter Seals Drop Zone and 24 hour Relay, the team at Neville Realty set out to create their own fundraising program – a series of community events with the goal of sending 5 kids to camp.

The year’s events kicked off on July 24th, at Century 21 Neville Realty’s golf tournament for Easter Seals raising a total of $5,640. The event took place on a beautiful day and for all involved was a huge success!

Throughout the year other funds came through Century 21 Neville Realty’s; hot diggity dog Friday’s, agents contributions, garage sales, and other fundraising initiatives.

The team at Neville is so supportive of the Easter Seals cause that participation in organizing the events stretches beyond the Realtors themselves. Seth and Sophie Genoe (children of Angela Genoe) are the team’s youngest supporters who have taken up the job of selling cookies at the hot diggity dog Friday’s… they have volunteered for 3 hot diggity dog Fridays and at their last day they raise over $100 themselves from their efforts.

All the effort pays off as well, as the Neville Realty team has blown away their 2011 goal totaling more than $16,000 raised this year. From the entire Easter Seals family, a huge thank you goes out to everyone at CENTURY 21 Neville Realty.
