It’s always fun to see the original fundraising ideas and watch everyone come together to help out the Outer Banks community.
Nags Head, NC (PRWEB) November 15, 2011
Every year Village Realty employees and agents engage in a spirited competition for charity at Christmastime. Each department holds a fundraiser of its choice to raise money for families who need extra help during the holidays. Departments enjoy competing to see who can raise the most money for the Christmas fund. Project chairperson Emily Lewis says "It's always fun to see the original fundraising ideas and watching everyone come together to help out the Outer Banks community."
In addition to holiday fundraisers, the dress code is relaxed allowing everyone to wear blue jeans in exchange for a $1 per day donation to the Christmas Fund. Village Realty matches the employees and agents dollar for dollar on all the money raised. Last year, over $7,800 was donated to the Angel Tree Project.
Due to Hurricane Irene, the need for assistance during the holidays is greater than ever on the Outer Banks.
This year auction and raffle items include a week off season at the beautiful Croatan Surf Club on the oceanfront in Kill Devil Hills; a tandem Ultra-Light trike trip; private wine tasting for fifteen people at OBX Trio; a Weatherby model shotgun; a week in an Ocracoke Island vacation rental, a flat screen TV, and a Lenovo ThinkPad Notebook.
For the first time auctions are open to anyone, not just employees of Village Realty and their families. To see a list of items and register to bid please go to CharityAuctionsToday.com.
