Queens, Garage Sale & Comedians - Shelter Weekend Extravaganza!- Royal LePage® Benchmark - Calgary

What do Drag Queens, Comedians, and Garage Sales have in common?!

An EPIC weekend of raising money for the Shelter Foundation, and a great assortment of razzle-dazzle!! Just shy of $19,000 was raised this past weekend as Benchmark Agents and Partners rolled up their sleeves and pantyhose to bring awareness, raise money and show our communities a great time!

2nd Annual Benefit DRAG SHOW in Strathmore!

$11,503 was raised at this show-stopping night of glitz, glamour, and fun! A huge shout out to our Event Coordinator Amanda Bazant for pulling this off and killing it in donations that will go directly to the Wheatland Crisis Society. Another big thank you to our broker/owner Corrine Lyall who didn’t hesitate to support an out-of-the-box event!

A Shout Out to Open Door Marketing, Urban Casual for helping market the event, the Lions Center in Cochrane for hosting us, and all the agents who helped make it happen!

21st Annual Cochrane Garage Sale!

Last but certainly not least, Benchmark hosted its 21st annual Cochrane Garage Sale! The town was buzzing with anticipation as donations poured in a few weeks before the event which led up to the BIG DAY.

Cochranites flooded to the garage sale, hauling out treasures with 100% of all the proceeds going directly to Big Hill Haven, Cochrane’s Women’s Shelter. This garage sale raised over $7,000 and counting!

Led by Cochrane Real Estate Group, this event wouldn’t be possible without our helpers! A big shout out to our Benchmark volunteers,  Open Door Marketing, and Urban Casual for helping market the event, the Lions Center in Cochrane for hosting us, and our sponsors The Butchery Block, Tim Hortons, The Wildies, and Miss Poutine.

Thank You Strathmore and Cochrane!

These events often evolved from an agent, team, or brokerage idea. The dedication of our Benchmark family to come alongside these ideas and see them come to life is amazing! Though all the funds are processed through Royal LePage® Shelter Foundation, 100% of all proceeds go to the local shelter of the event. However, none of this would be possible without the generous donations within our community.
