Hasbrouck Heights, NJ (September 2017) – Local Realtors® and industry professionals attended the Eastern Bergen County Board of REALTORS®, Care Foundation for their annual golf & tennis outing held at the Montammy Golf Club in Alpine, NJ.  The charitable event raised over $11,000. All monies raised will go toward supporting local non-profit organizations that provide essential services and assistance to those in need.

The mission of the charitable foundation gives focus and strength to the Eastern Bergen County Board of Realtors 93-year tradition of giving back the community. Since the debut of the REALTORS® Care Foundation in 2015, the organization has awarded over $98,000 worth in grant money to 12 local non-profit organizations that provide food, housing, education and shelter to families and children in need.

“As the association holds their third Annual Golf Outing, we are thrilled to see the continued growth and awareness our REALTORS Care Foundation is bringing to REALTORS and industry professionals about the different organizations out there and the footprint they leave behind by helping this fundraiser be a success, said EBCBOR’s Chief Executive Officer, Jorge Ledesma. “Our membership is committed to doing more than just selling homes. We are dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work.”

The event gave golfers, tennis players, and participants the opportunity to enjoy a day of sport and charity. Following golf and tennis, attendees gathered for cocktails, dinner and the Awards Ceremony where they networked with colleagues and industry partners. During the cocktail hour all participants got the chance to take part in the silent auction where players and guests were able to bid on and purchase unique sport & film memorabilia. The major sponsor for this year’s outing were NJ Lenders Corp, Envoy Mortgage, Eastern Realty, Inc., Main Street title & Settlement Services, LLC., Century 21 Allstars 100, Weichert REALTORS – Fort Lee, and The Cadre Law Firm.

“This fundraising event for the Realtors® Care Foundation was an overwhelming success” said 2017 president of the EBCBOR'S Care Foundation, Annekee Brahver-Keely of Russo Real Estate. “This year we added tennis to the now third annual golf outing! Showing once again that Realtors do more than sell houses, we had a day of fun, sports, networking and relaxation all while raising funds for local charities falling within our guidelines of providing food, housing, education and shelter. I am enthusiastic and optimistic about our fourth Annual Golf & Tennis Outing which will take place summer 2018.

The Realtors Care Foundation currently has their 2017 grant application available on the website for local organization interested in applying. All applications will be accepted until Tuesday, October 31st. All grant recipients will be notified December 2017.
