Girls Just Want To Have Fun - And All For A Good Cause

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Centre Inc., Brokerage

One of my colleagues sent me this photo today with the following message. "Damn!!! We look HOT!" 

The photo was taken by our wonderful male server at our Board's President's Gala For Charity.  All proceeds from the event went to support well known Habitat For Humanity.  It was an amazing evening with a dinner dance, silent auction and casino tables.  Our president Jeff Mahannah looked quite dashing in his tux.

This was a huge event for our Board with over 200 attendees.  I was lucky to work with a great team of helpers on the gala committee.

We even had some winners at our table.  One of my colleagues won a $2300. diamond necklace from a $20. investment in a draw and another of my tablemates won a 3 night trip to Las Vegas with hotel and airfare for 2 from winning our heads and tails game.

But the big winner for the evening was Habitat For Humanity who have just completed two homes here in Oakville for two very deserving families.

Hi Brian, we had some folks from OREA in attendance also celebrating Jeff's gala.  It was nice to catch up with some people I haven't seen for awhile.

Hi Bruce, our gala chair is a mover and a shaker and when she told us what to do we did it lol.  Her fundraising skills made the evening.  She was instrumental in getting Erin Brockovich here in October for the fundraisers to help stop a 900 megawatt power plant from coming to Oakville - Happy to report Citizens for Clean Air won the battle and no power plant coming.

Mary you hit the nail on the head - Fundraisers are so much better when they are fun.

Hi Barrie, you are right - Shelter based organizations are a great cause for REALTORS® to get involved with.

It's fantastic that you have a heart to give back.  I would hope that everyone would develop that same heart this year.

Hi Malcolm, it was one of those special evenings and it was nice to see everyone having a great time.

Thanks for stopping by Kerrie.  And thanks for the compliment lol.

Thanks Elizabeth - We were so happy to have two Habitat homes built here in Oakville recently.  Land here is so expensive that we never thought it would happen.

Hi Marc, thanks, it wasn't featured when I first started replying so that was a surprise. 

Oh Lanre, it sounds like you may have been the life of the party if you'd been there lol.

Hi Amber - look up Habitat for Hamanity and see where the closest district is to you.  They are always looking for volunteers.

Hi Wanda, it was fun getting dressed up for a change.  Everyone looked great that night.

Thanks Jennifer, Habitat never seems to have any problems getting volunteers which is great.

Thanks Lynda, glad to see you are involved with this organization also.

Thanks Irene - and look at that hot guy in your new profile pic.

Hi again Larry and thanks for the link to our Board. 

Thanks James, it takes a dedicated group to put something like this together and we had an amazing chair.

Hi Russel, thanks for stopping by.  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Hi Jim, LOL hard to believe there can be so many different styles of black dresses.  I think I'd like your wife.

Jenny:  It sounds like it was a really fun night for all.  And, what a great cause, as well.  Habitat for Humanity says so much about anyone connected with it.  And yes... you all looked HOT.  I am sure that just about all of the guys... (and some of the women, as well) thought so, too.

Jenny, first of all I'm not too PC so....HOT INDEED!!! I agree with Robert... I also would have loved to be at that table with all you lovely winners ladies :)) 

Of course as you indicated the big winners were Habitat and the families they were able to help.  Got here too late to suggest, but I guess you didn't need my help with that.

Did everyone wear black to this thing?

Or did all you Women in Black just decide to congregate and mourn together.
