The third annual Raise the Roof for Shelter aims to be the biggest yet.

The cocktail/mixer is hosted by the The Modern Real Estate Team realtors Tasha Noble and Saira Waters and client care co-ordinator Laura Roberts at Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty Oak Bay, but held this year at the Oswego in James Bay.

“It was inevitable that Saira and I were going to start our own fundraiser together,” Noble said. “We started this fundraiser which we’re doing annually on top of all the other fundraisers Royal LePage does.”

Royal LePage has its own Canada-wide Shelter Foundation for realtors to raise money for women’s shelters in their community.

Raise the Roof for Shelter fundraises for four Victoria-area women’s shelters – Victoria Women’s Transition House, Margaret Lawrence House, Sooke Transition House Society and the Cridge Centre for the Family.

Noble, who lives in Oak Bay and serves as a director on the Community Association of Oak Bay, has a personal connection with someone who, with three children under five, had to leave a violent situation. Adding to her role as a realtor, and a concern for people and housing, the fundraiser is a perfect fit.

“We believe in giving back to our community and we also donate a portion of all our commission cheques to the shelter foundation.”

Thanks to sponsors Max Furniture, RBC (Oak Bay), The Mortgage Group and Quadra Legal Centre, guests will enjoy a free glass of bubbly and some nibbles during the Oct. 20 event, which includes appetizers, a silent auction and a chance for people to mingle.

“Last year we raised $4,400 with donations and silent auction and this year our goal is more than $5,000,” Noble said.
