What an amazing conference held in Vancouver this past weekend! I met so many great people, and the speakers they had were outstanding! A truly inspirational moment was when one of the speakers, Trevor Linden, auctioned off some jerseys and made $30,000 for a kids charity.

This November and December, our local RE/MAX office in West Kelowna once again supported an "adopted family" through the West Kelowna Food Bank. As an office, we collect donations of cash and gifts for one particular family in West Kelowna. What a great opportunity to directly help a local family and hopefully make their Christmas a bit brighter!
In addition, as part of the RE/MAX Realtor Legacy Foundation, we were able to make donations to 3 Central Okanagan Food Banks, including a donation of $500 to the West Kelowna Food Bank. It's so encouraging to see the donations that keep coming in for our local food banks to make sure that no one in our community goes hungry.
I wish you a very blessed Christmas with you and your family - may it be filled with warmth, love and joy!
Here I am with Grant, the Manager at the West Kelowna Food Bank presenting him with a donation from the RE/MAX Realtor Legacy Foundation.
