Newmarket, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
John Lusink, Broker of Record and Managing Partner of Royal LePage York North Realty, is urging all Royal LePage Brokers and Sales Representatives in the Newmarket and Toronto areas, as well as all other supporters of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, to make a nomination for the annual Shelter Awards.
It is the season of giving, and it is time to recognize those who have given back to their communities by making a special contribution to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation or to a local women’s shelter program during the past year.
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation provides three types of awards each year, including the Individual Award, the Team/Office Award, and the Supplier/Sponsor Award, for each Canadian Province.
The Individual Award – will be presented to a Royal LePage sales agent, broker, sales representative or staff member who has made a striking contribution to the Foundation, or to a local women’s shelter during the past year. This individual may not have won the Individual Award within the past two years. Further, a Philanthropist of the Year Award may also be presented from among the Individual Award nominations to an individual who has shown exceptional leadership and devotion to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
The Shelter Awards committee may or may not decide to present the Philanthropist of the Year Award for 2012, depending on the contributions of those nominated for the Individual Award.
The Office/Team Award – will be presented to offices and/or teams that have organized successful fundraising events or that have volunteered significant time and effort to supporting their local women’s shelters. It is required that the nominated offices or teams be Royal LePage agents making Commission Donations in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
The Supplier/Sponsor Award – will be presented to a supplier, sponsor, or business partner that has offered exceptional support to the Foundation, and which works directly to help raise awareness and funding for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
Submissions for the Annual Shelter Awards must be made by January 7, 2013, to qualify for the 2012 Awards and will be reviewed by the Shelter Awards committee. Award winners will be announced at the provincial Royal LePage Performance Awards Events in early 2013, and will also be highlighted in the Leading Edge, in Shelter Foundation communications, and on the Foundation website, http://www.royallepage.ca/.
John Lusink, also a prominent FocalPoint Business Coach in Newmarket, has been an Active Supporter and generous Contributor to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation for more than a decade. Each year, he and his associates at Royal LePage York North Realty devote time, energy, and money to the support of the Foundation, while at the same time encouraging others to do the same.
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is the only Charitable Foundation in Canada that is wholly supported by a real estate firm, and is dedicated to funding women’s shelters, as well as creating and supporting family-violence education and prevention programs. The Foundation covers all administrative costs, permitting all donations to reach families in need.
