Local REALTORS® Give Back to their Communities

Media Release

January 3, 2019, Collingwood ON

On behalf of the Members of the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® (SGBAR), the 2018 President of the Association, Matthew Lidbetter, presented cheques to various local charities representing proceeds of almost $8,000 from the Ontario REALTORS Care Foundation – Every REALTOR® Campaign. 2018 recipients were:  Home Horizon, My Friend’s House, La Maison Rosewood Shelter and Shelter Now.

Local REALTORS® make a difference by volunteering their time and raising funds for a diverse array of causes and charities close to their hearts.  The Every REALTOR® Campaign complements their great philanthropic initiatives.   “We’re very proud of the great work our Foundation does,” says Matthew Lidbetter, 2018 President of the Association. “It belongs to all of us and through it we can effect positive change in our communities and improve quality of life in Southern Georgian Bay.”  The Association intends to once again support the Campaign in 2019. 

Each SGBAR Member contributes monthly through the Every REALTOR® Campaign.  The Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation acts on behalf of Ontario REALTORS® in funding shelter-related charities across the province.  Shelter is defined as a refuge, haven or protection that provides or improves quality of life from hunger, the elements, physical/psychological abuse, disabilities and illness.  “The Foundation is the legacy of every REALTOR® in this province,” says Lidbetter.  “That’s why our Association thinks it’s important to support its great work.  It’s one of the many ways our Local REALTORS® give back to the communities where they live, work and play.”

The Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® represents over 560 REALTORS® in the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene, the Townships of Tay and Tiny and parts of Severn and Georgian Bay Townships, Wasaga Beach, Clearview Township, Collingwood, The Blue Mountains and portions of the Municipality of Meaford and Grey Highlands.
