The As­so­ci­a­tion of Saskatchewan Real­tors® hosted another suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing event in Regina on April 25. The REAL­TOR® Rock pre­sented by A Buyer’s Choice Home In­spec­tions raises funds for the Qual­ity of Life Legacy Fund – an ini­tia­tive that pro­vides grants to char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions through­out Saskatchewan each year.

The event, which fea­tured REAL­TORS® and in­dus­try part­ners decked out in their best rock star at­tire, raised over $20,000 for the fund, en­sur­ing another year of sup­port to six de­serv­ing char­i­ties.

One of the 2017 Qual­ity of Life grant re­cip­i­ents, and re­ceiv­ing a $5,000 cheque at the ASR An­nual Gen­eral meet­ing, was Swift Cur­rent’s South­west Youth Emer­gency Shel­ter Inc., The shel­ter as­sists in the pro­vi­sion of safe, se­cure shel­ter and sup­port for youth who are home­less or at-risk of be­com­ing home­less.

“The Qual­ity of Life Legacy Fund is just another way REAL­TORS® are show­ing sup­port in their com­mu­ni­ties,” says Bill Mad­der, CEO of the ASR. “In the fifth year of this ini­tia­tive, it is en­cour­ag­ing to see the amaz­ing work these char­i­ties have done, and con­tinue to do for peo­ple in Saskatchewan, and the on­go­ing sup­port from the REAL­TOR® com­mu­nity.”

The event also cel­e­brates REAL­TOR® suc­cess with two awards. This year, we were pleased to hon­our Len Was­sill of Melville with the CMHC Dis­tin­guished REAL­TOR® Award, and Cristin Korchin­ski of Regina with the Young Pro­fes­sion­als Net­work Ris­ing Star Award. Both awards rec­og­nize REAL­TORS® for their out­stand­ing lead­er­ship, ded­i­ca­tion and con­tri­bu­tions to the REAL­TOR® com­mu­nity.
