Royal LePage Wolle Realty recently hosted its inaugural Shelterfest event, raising more than $30,000 for two local women’s shelters.

This traditional Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest-style evening took place at the locally renowned Concordia Club, where our guests enjoyed authentic music provided by The Black Forest Band, a delicious Bavarian buffet, and classic Oktoberfest games and dancing. Partygoers bid in a silent auction and purchased Oktoberfest hats, feathers, pins and beer nuts to round out the fundraising.

“When we first conceptualized this event, we were optimistic that we could capture the fun and festivities of Oktoberfest in June, but it was so special to see how enthusiastically the theme was embraced by our family of supporters and brought to life by a room full of amazing guests,” said Jennifer Wolle, director of operations for Royal LePage Wolle Realty. “I am deeply grateful to our generous sponsors, our dedicated committee and volunteers, and each and every donor who made Shelterfest the success that it was.”

“Supporting our local women’s shelters through the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is a cornerstone of our business at Royal LePage Wolle Realty,” added broker/owner, Mark Wolle. “We’re always looking for ways to deepen our impact and stand together in solidarity that home should be a safe place for everyone. Events like Shelterfest not only allow us to be part of the solution to ending family violence, they also help us connect meaningfully with like-minded clients and community – all while having an incredible time together!”

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation donated 100 per cent of Shelterfest proceeds to Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region and Woolwich Community Services.
