Gimme Shelter

Since 2010, WinnipegREALTORS® has held an annual fundraising event on behalf of the Manitoba Real Estate Association (MREA) Shelter Foundation. Focusing on the support of non-profit shelter-related causes, the MREA Shelter Foundation seeks to raise funds for these organizations and elevate the quality of life for Manitobans. 

Recognizing the importance of shelter and its role in building safe, dynamic communities, the Gimme Shelter fundraiser was created to increase awareness of the Foundation and its mission.

Initially themed as a showcase for musical and performance talent among the professional real estate industry, Gimme Shelter has evolved through different iterations in recent years. The underlying focus remains the same, however, raising funds and awareness for shelter-related causes while providing an outstanding and fun event for members and the public.

Since its inception, the event has enabled WinnipegREALTORS® to donate over $320,000 to the Foundation. For more information on the Shelter Foundation, please click to
