ANNOUNCING THE 20TH ANNUAL ROYAL GALA LIVE & SILENT AUCTION

 

Lethbridge, AB – Royal LePage South Country is hosting its 20th Annual Royal Gala Live & Silent auction next Tuesday (Nov.7th) in the Grand Ballroom at the Lethbridge Lodge. The gala evening is a fundraiser benefit for YWCA Harbour House. It starts at 7:00pm.

Since 1998, Royal LePage South Country has raised more than $690,000 for Lethbridge’s YWCA Harbour House Women’s Emergency Shelter.
Tickets for the gala are $25 each. They are available only via the Handbid app.

This is an online auction. Tickets include wine & light appetizers as well as access to both the live & silent auctions. Ticket holders can bid on silent auction items without attending, if they wish.

In Canada, more than 50% of women will experience an incident of violence at some point in their lives, the majority before they turn 25. Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.

Donations for the auctions can be dropped off at Royal LePage South Country (526-5th Street South). 100% of the proceeds from the auction supports YWCA Harbour House.
