On Saturday 7 October, the Redlands real estate and business community gathered at the Alexandra Hills Hotel to provide a significant financial boost to local charity Homeless United, which is a program run by Redlands Community Centre.

There’s No Place Like Home is a gala fundraising dinner and auction, now in its third year, which brings people together to raise funds for a common cause: homelessness.

Event organiser Louise Denisenko, from Redlands Coast Properties, drove the fundraising effort and designed a spectacular evening of entertainment for a worthy cause along with fellow real estate agents.

“Having been in the real estate industry now for more than 11 years, I noticed there was no event locally that brought competitors of the industry, and associated businesses together to raise money for a local charity,” explained Louise.

“As agents, we have the best job in the world; we sell and find people homes. Therefore, I thought what a great concept to give back and unite to eat, drink, and raise much-needed money for our local homeless.

“It was very important to me that the chosen charity be local and support people get their lives back on track, so Homeless United fits this criteria and is based at Redlands Community Centre Capalaba.”

The event raised $42,810 for Homeless United. Congratulations to all involved for their generous support and donations.
