Since 2013, I have been participating in the Steveston Salmon Festival Parade on Canada Day. I bring out my team and my whole family. I hand out branded bags and the crowd goes crazy. The first year we did it we got 1,500 reuseable shopping bags and each year we have been doubling the amount we handed out.
It’s been my honor and privilege to be associated with Chimo and the Coldest Night of the Year as one of the lead sponsors since it was initiated in 2017 in Richmond. Our partnership has been so rewarding in so many ways, not only for the community that I call home, but for my team and my family to participate and know that we are making a difference in the lives of everyday people.
The Coldest Night of the Year focuses on the homelessness in our community. An estimated 235,000 Canadians experience homelessness every year, and hundreds of thousands more face the constant challenge of living right on the edge.
People in your community. Neighbours down your street. Kids you see every day. A family member you love. Adults, youth, families, the elderly. Maybe you?

Instead of doing the usual Family Movie day, I hosted a picnic lunch at my house in Riverdale. This year we had the award winning food truck Le Tigre cater the event. My team and I had a chance to show all our clients in the area how much we appreciate them.
As part of their commitment to the community, Shafik, his team and RE/MAX Westcoast host a Family Movie Night each year to show their appreciation to their wonderful clients. Family Movie Night is an opportunity for current and prospective clients to bring their families together and enjoy a day out. This fun filled day includes live entertainment, balloon artists, magicians and of course, some great movies. For more information on buying a house in Richmond, BC and being part of our Family Movie Day contact Shafik.
