Members of the Manitoba Real Estate Association served up a delicious Easter dinner Friday afternoon at Siloam Mission.

About 85 real estate agents served Winnipeg’s homeless population with food they donated themselves, and also decorated Siloam’s drop-in centre to give it a more festive feel.

Siloam was expecting between 500-700 guests to come by between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

The annual Easter gathering of Winnipeg’s inner-city population also provided entertainment.
