We're so pleased to announce that the money raised from this year's FUNDay has put us over the $1 million mark. We've raised more than $1,034,000 since we began FUNDay 12 years ago. And that money is returned directly to public education organizations in the communities where our Realtors live and work
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 28, 2009
Allen Tate Company (http://www.allentate.com), the Carolinas' leading real estate company, has raised more than $1 million for public education organizations through its annual FUNDay event.
To outsiders, Allen Tate FUNDay might seem like a bunch of Realtors getting together to socialize, dance, and play golf, tennis, and bridge. But to thousands of students enrolled in public schools across the Carolinas, FUNDay means programs, activities, field trips, computers, school supplies and more.
On September 21, more than 500 Allen Tate Realtors from the Charlotte, Triad, Triangle and Upstate regions gathered at The Point Lake & Golf Club on Lake Norman for the company's 12th Annual FUNDay public education fundraiser. The "day of play," where participants pay an entry fee and to participate in individual activities, resulted in more than $97,000 in proceeds. Silent, live and online auctions brought in additional funds.
"We're so pleased to announce that the money raised from this year's FUNDay has put us over the $1 million mark. We've raised more than $1,034,000 since we began FUNDay 12 years ago. And that money is returned directly to public education organizations in the communities where our Realtors live and work," said Pat Riley, president, Allen Tate Company.
"Allen Tate Company is passionate about public education and understands its critical importance to quality of life and economic development in our communities. I'm always humbled by the generosity of our Realtors when it comes to supporting this very worthy cause, but especially this year, with the current economy," added Riley.
As members of the community and as real estate professionals, Allen Tate Realtors are keenly aware of the importance of solid, successful public school systems. Consumers seek information from their Realtor about local schools, perhaps more than any other criteria, when making home-buying and relocation decisions. FUNDay gives everyone at Allen Tate a chance to directly impact the local school system and organizations committed to quality education in the areas the Allen Tate Company serves.
Allen Tate Realtors is the Carolinas' largest real estate company with offices in the Charlotte, Triad, Triangle and Upstate South Carolina regions.
