Cheque presentation at the 2019 Dive in with Developers event
Ryan Rabinovich of RARE Real Estate will host his 3rd annual Dive in with Developers event to benefit SickKids’ Epilepsy Classroom. The panel-style discussion will focus on the current state of the GTA’s real estate market, with an emphasis on new housing.
This year’s panel will include Brian Brown, Kalliopi Karkas, Matthew Young, and Bryan Levy, all Principals, CEOs and Executives from LifeTime Developments, RioCan Living, Republic Developments, and DBS Developments.
Rabinovich has committed all event proceeds to a campaign he initiated in 2019, Developers vs Epilepsy, benefiting the Epilepsy Classroom in Toronto’s SickKids Hospital. The event is happening at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto.
The classroom is the only one of its kind in the world, costs $135,000 annually, and is funded entirely from donations. In 2020, the campaign successfully raised sufficient funding to cover all the children’s tuition; however, the pandemic forced the event’s cancellation in 2021.
Rabinovich jokes that he has effectively “crowd-sourced charity work” and that he had no clue what the outcome would be when he first started, ultimately raising over $50,000 in his first year, and more than $275,000 in three years. “It is one of the biggest and most important accomplishments of my life, and It’s all thanks to the GTA’s real estate industry professionals, who have shown unbelievable generosity in their support for this cause,” says Rabinovich.
Event tickets, donation and sponsorship opportunities are still available.
