Realtor raising cash for shelters

Suzanne Mariani puts on fundraisers for Siloam Mission, Habitat for Humanity

You may have seen her face in her ads across the city, but next week realtor Suzanne Mariani is using her star power for a good cause.

The Suzanne Mariani Benefit Fundraiser for local shelters is taking place at the West End Cultural Centre on Nov. 5.

Funds from the social will go towards the Manitoba Realtors Association’s annual Give Me Shelter benefit, which Mariani helps organize. The benefit typically raises between $40,000 and $50,000 each year for charitable organizations that support shelter-related causes, but this year Mariani said she wanted to raise as much as she good on top of their regular draw.

The funds will be split between Siloam Mission and Habitat for Humanity.

Before becoming a successful realtor, Mariani had a long career in the music business, at one time working with Kool and the Gang, Earth, Wind and Fire, and even attending the Grammys.

But at one time, Mariani was down on her luck, losing her home and having to rely on Winnipeg Harvest to feed herself and her four children. This experience has motivated her to give back, she said.

“Right now I’m a successful realtor, but with that experience of climbing back up and building myself up again and raising my kids, I just started volunteering when things got better again,” she said.

“If it weren’t for those people, some people like myself wouldn’t have been able to pull up their socks and have a normal, healthy, successful career like I have now. So we need those places, we really really do.”

Tickets are $25 each, which is close to amount the Siloam Mission would spend to feed a family of eight, Mariani explained. The social will feature classic rock music from Mariani’s band as well as other “surprise” musical guests.
