Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society


Royal LePage Wildrose "Suitcase Party" Fundraiser

Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society Building Fundraiser

On May 3rd, 2019, Royal LePage Wildrose Real Estate hosted it's First Annual "Suitcase Party" Fundraiser at the Pomeroy Inn and Suites, in Olds, for the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society, in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.

Currently the MVESS has no physical shelter and so 100 % of the proceeds from the event went to the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Society towards their building fund. We are delighted to announce that we raised over $23,500 towards this goal at our event, and another $9500 came in as donations, as a result of it! The final total raised for the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Building Fund, from our "First 1st Annual Suitcase Party" was $33,011.87!! We want to sincerely thank everyone who helped make the 2019 event a success - either through your generous sponsorship, by donating goods for both the live and silent auctions, those who gave monetary donations and of course to those who bought tickets and came to the event itself!  We are so thankful for the contribution you have all made in some way, towards the success of the evening and for the eventual long term difference this will make to those in our area.

Sadly, since COVID-19 started, domestic violence incidences have increased over 230% in Mountain View County. More than ever, there is a need for an Emergency Shelter Building to be built in our area, in order to help adults and children safely escape from abusive situations.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID19 restrictions, Royal LePage Wildrose Real Estate had to cancel both the 2020 and 2021 "Suitcase Party" fundraiser, for the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Building fund.
However, we have an exciting, totally different event in the planning stages! On May 12, 2021, we will be hosting an all- day event in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, with all the proceeds going to the Mountain View Emergency Shelter Building Fund.
We will release more details closer to the time, but please save the date on your calendar and phone. For more information , check back here in the coming  weeks, or follow us on Facebook under "Royal LePage Wildrose Real Estate" or "Royal LePage Wildrose Emergency Shelter Suitcase Party" .
If you want to know how you can lend your support to this years event, call us at the  Olds Office at (403) 556-6500 during office hours.  We look forward to hearing from you!
