Close to $30,000 Raised at the Collingwood Holiday House Tour

The 5th annual Collingwood Holiday House Tour was a grand success. The November 12 event, hosted at the Georgian Bay Hotel, was another triumph raising close to $30,000. A big shout out to the hard-working fundraising team led by Debbie Bullock at Royal LePage Locations North, in partnership with Our Homes Magazine. Funds raised via ticket sales and the silent auction are in support of Royal LePage Shelter Foundation as well as charities nominated by each of this year’s generous homeowners. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation supports My Friend’s House in Collingwood. The six homeowners split 25% of the funds raised, and cheques have been donated to their charities of choice, including Events for Life, Campbell House, Georgian Triangle Humane Society, and the Maddie Project. The remaining homeowners donated their portion to My Friend’s House. The total raised from the 2016 Collingwood Holiday House Tour is $29,127.60, with total funds raised for My Friend’s House at a whopping $25,106.34! The Day of the Tour Weather conditions were perfect for the 900 visitors to enjoy 9 beautifully decorated homes of varying styles and sizes. It was a packed day!
