Venture Commercial was created in the Okanagan with a drive to be leaders in our industry. We strive not only be leaders in commercial real estate, but to be leaders of giving back to a community that has given us so much. Giving back is about more than just donating funds, it’s about cultivating innovative and creative ways to make impactful changes within our community. We see this as both a responsibility and a privilege to support our community and the local organizations.
The Billboard Initiative (August 2020)
The first of many initiatives, Venture Realty Corp. had the opportunity to donate a three month advertisement on The Electronic Billboard to two organizations based on local nominations. We received over 150 nominations for many different local shops, restaurants, individuals and causes that could benefit from this billboard ad.
King Rooter Plumbing was the local company that received from this initiative. Evan Sigalas, Owner of King Rooter Plumbing has found his own way to pay it forward by honouring that when anyone mentions the billboard during a call, he will donate $100.00 to the BC Epilepsy Foundation, a cause that is close to his heart due to his son Alex suffering from Epilepsy since he was 6 months old.
The Bridge Youth and Family Resource Centre was the second recipient of a 3 month Billboard ad. This local organization is currently raising money for a youth treatment facility in the Central Okanagan and will be using the billboard to raise awareness.
