Hasbrouck Heights, NJ (June 18, 2018) – Local Realtors® and industry professionals attended the Eastern Bergen County Board of REALTORS®, Care Foundation 4th annual golf & tennis outing held at the Montammy Golf Club in Alpine, NJ.  This charitable event raised over $20,000. 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 $150,000 worth in grant money to 15 local non-profit organizations that provide food, housing, education and shelter to families and children in need.

The event gave golfers, tennis players, and participants the opportunity to enjoy a day of sport and charity. 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. This year’s major tournament sponsor was The Alexa Luxury Rentals. Other sponsors included Envoy Mortgage, Main Street title & Settlement Services, LLC., NJ Lenders, Prominent Properties Sotheby’s, Acres Title, Absolute Home Mortgage, and FDS Architects.  

Annekee brahver-Keely of Russo Real Estate and the 2018 President for the Realtors® Care Foundation stated “This year’s second time of adding tennis to our already previously terrific golf outings proved to be an overwhelming success. I am ecstatic to see the increase in not only players but overall participation from our Realtor members, affiliates, friends and family alike. This year, our fundraising efforts increased tremendously; as a result, the Foundation will be able to give even more grants to more local charities.  We are already looking forward to yet again build on this momentum for next year’s event and welcome anyone to come and play with us for this rewarding cause!”

The Realtors Care Foundation currently has their 2018 grant application available on their website www.ebcborcarefoundation.org for local organization interested in applying. All applications will be accepted until Wednesday, October 31st. All grant recipients will be notified December 2018.
