History of REX Awards Charitable Donations

$25 from each REX Gala Ticket donated to a deserving charity
In exchange for the $25 charitable donation component of each gala ticket sold, ticket buyers were given a prize draw ticket -- one draw ticket for each seat purchased -- for an opportunity to win a $10,000 TRAVEL VOUCHER. Anyone wishing to make a further donation on-site to the charitable beneficiary was able to do so with a representative of the organization

How the REX Gala charitable beneficiary is selected
Each year NAIOP Greater Toronto aligns its choice of a charitable beneficiary with the selection of the Community Service REX Award Recipient. The award recipient may recommend a deserving charitable organization operating in or around the Greater Toronto Area, for the NAIOP Board of Directors' consideration.

The 16th Annual REX Gala Charitable Beneficiary


Eva’s Place, Eva’s Satellite, and Eva’s Phoenix provide safe space and support for 123 homeless youth aged 16-24 every night. Each facility is designed to help youth with their unique circumstances transition out of homelessness and on to independent living.

Eva's works directly with every youth who comes through its doors to develop a personalized action plan that will empower them to achieve their short and long-term goals. The award-winning programs have been proven to help homeless youth lead productive, self-sufficient, and healthy lives.

 Eva's is more than a shelter, it's a fresh start.
