Sarah Wollner, of Royal LePage Connect Realty in Ajax, Ontario, recently hosted a Yuk Yuk’s comedy night fundraiser in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and Juliette’s Place.

Three comedians entertained the crowd of 125 people—all clients, friends, and colleagues of Wollner’s who came out to show their support for the cause—helping local women and children safely escape domestic violence.

The $3,000 raised will count towards Wollner’s upcoming participation in the Iceland Challenge for Shelter in July 2017. Each trekker must raise at least $5,000, which will be directed to their local women’s shelter and national programs aimed at breaking the cycle of family violence in Canada.

“It was a wonderful night from beginning to end,” Wollner said.  “I was amazed at just how supportive everyone was, and how much they enjoyed helping and taking part in something that was making a difference in the lives of those in need.”
