Okotoks 'Western Wheel Cares' Program Launched

Our Okotoks Real Estate Team has developed a reputation of giving back to the community, so naturally we are happy to offer you another opportunity to help out those in need in and around Okotoks. 


On November 7 the Western Wheel Cares charity fundraising campaign was launched. This is the first of what the local newspaper hopes will be many initiatives to give back to the community. 


As part of their contribution back to the Okotoks & Foothills community, the Western Wheel will handle the administration and promotion of this event which will see the funds raised shared amongst the following charities:  


- The Okotoks & District Food Bank

- The Foothills Country Hospice

- The Sheep River Health Trust

- Rowan House Emergency Shelter


Friend of The Jay Magnussen Real Estate Team, Robyn Duplisea who is in Ad Sales at the Western Wheel, said "We are seeking your support as individuals and businesses to donate and also to help spread the word.

We are hoping various groups, businesses and individuals will get involved as well, to challenge each other to match their donations and help make this a successful annual fundraising event for our community."


All donors names and the amount donated will be published in the Western Wheel, updated weekly (unless anonymity is requested). They also welcome donations on behalf of other individuals as a Christmas gift.


Donations will be accepted from until December 31, 2012.


To participate you can call the Western Wheel office Monday to Friday from 9-5pm and make a donation using your credit card. They will also accept donations in person at their office via debit, cash and cheques. Or visit to donate using PayPal.


#9 McRae Street or mailed to Box 150, Okotoks, AB T1S 2A2



All donations of $10 or more will receive a 2012 official tax receipt at the end of the campaign. For more information please contact


It's all about Neighbours helping Neighbours and your support is greatly appreciated by all. We thank you on behalf of our Remax Real Estate Team and this years charities for your generous donations.
