KELOWNA - The Central Okanagan Zone Executive of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB) is pleased to announce that its Members have raised close to $14,000 to benefit two local charities -- the Kelowna Women's Shelter and Habitat for Humanity Kelowna.
Presentations were made to both charities at the Zone Executive meeting on May 6th with $6,925 going to the Shelter and another $6,925 to Habitat – proceeds from the Zone’s Christmas Silent Auction in December 2014.
Karen Mason, Executive Director for the Kelowna Women's Shelter, and Deborah Guthrie, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity Kelowna were on hand to accept the cheques on behalf of their community organizations.
OMREB member realtors care about the quality of life in the communities where they live, work and play, and actively choose to make a difference with a significant contribution in time and effort to raise awareness and funds for various causes, charities and organizations.
