CENTURY 21 raises $27,000 at Poker Tournament for Easter Seals Camp Winfield
A total of 110 participants took part in the 8th Annual Texas Hold ‘Em Charity Tournament hosted by CENTURY 21 Assurance Realty Ltd. in Kelowna.

“We are proud to be part of a community like Easter Seals, that supports people with disabilities and gives them an opportunity to live, learn, work and play within their own communities,” says Anna Carbone, co-owner of CENTURY 21 Assurance Realty Ltd. “Each year our office rallies together to raise funds to send kids to Camp Winfield. These camps are so important to the development of kids with diverse abilities. It puts a smile on their faces and ours!”
