"A Night To Remember"
RESA First Annual Holiday Gala 2014
” A Night to Remember”
The spirit of the holidays lives in each and every one of us; clearly evidenced in RESA’s altruistic, memorable plan for an industry Holiday party.
Let’s set the stage, shall we? What began as a holiday party for RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) Professional Home Stagers, Lisa McIntee, RESA Ontario President and Angela Brooks Osborne, RESA RVP, made the last minute decision to transform the Second Annual RESA Holiday Party into an evening of red carpet celebration driven by the goal of a successful fundraiser along with heightened awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society.
With only a four week time frame they were able to secure a venue and entertainment, obtain over 10k in silent auction items, settle on an outstanding menu, garner sponsorships and ticket sales in their quest to raise awareness for patients and families living and coping with this debilitating disease.
Their hopes for this fundraiser go well beyond the night itself! A creative, dynamic plan for an integrated marketing and social media pathway has been developed will be gifted to the Alzheimer’s Society. These development of these plans are compliments of Tori Toth of www.toritoth.com and expert Real Estate Photographer, Doug Thompson . Awareness is the key to unlocking the mystery for all of us.
Alzheimer’s was primarily selected to help raise awareness of this devastating disease associated with mental health and can so often be misunderstood. The Alzheimer Society offers hope for tomorrow by funding research to find a cure and support quality of life for people living with dementia. Tickets for the First Annual RESA Holiday Gala have now sold out. It will truly be “A Night to Remember” to assist those who may not be able to, and hope to their caregivers who will never forget.
Merry Christmas to all…..
