The London and St. Thomas Association of Realtors held its 16th annual Homes for Hope Bonspiel recently, raising $11,085 for Mission Services of London.
The winning team was comprised of Russ Chadwick, Tony Verberne, Steven Horvath and past LSTAR president Ken Harper, who died on January 27. “Ken was on the Bonspiel Committee every year since its inception 16 years ago,” says LSTAR president Doug Pedlar. “He was a fine man and a credit to both his profession and his community. He will be sorely missed.”
“One of the principal tenets of the Quality of Life philosophy to which Realtors subscribe is our belief that everyone should have access to safe, affordable housing,” says Pedlar. “Mission Services has been providing shelter and assistance to the homeless and disadvantaged in our community for over a half a century. We’re proud to be counted among their supporters.”
Since its inception the bonspiel has raised more than $124,000 and the total raised by the association through the bonspiel and other fundraisers is more than $282,591.
