The Tourney Group - In the Community This Week

The Tourney Group is passionate about our community and we are passionate about giving back.  This week we will be involved in two very special events that will raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network and the Regina Humane Society.

RE/MAX and the Tourney Group are proud supporters of the Children’s Miracle Network.  Not only do we donate a portion of our commission from every transaction to CMN we also donate at National and International conferences, as well as local events.  What is great is that all money raised in Saskatchewan stays in Saskatchewan and goes towards the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.
