The Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee names Michele Tanner as their 2017 Humanitarian of the Year. Michele is a full-time Realtor with 12 years experience that works with the Preferred Shore Group of Allison James Estates & Homes. She is a Realtor focusing on waterfront properties and homes in the Greater Sarasota area for over 12 years. This award is given to a RASM member who is recognized for significant contribution as a volunteer for an organization or project in the community. Michele is the founder of her non-profit fundraiser, "Tanner's Turkeys" which is a basket brigade organized to provide local families who are less fortunate with a turkey, along with all the fixings needed to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. These families are often associated with Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Mothers Helping Mothers and other local non-profits. Michele was inspired by Tony Robbin's "Basket Brigade" which feeds over a million families a year. 2017 marks the seventh year that Michele has worked on this charitable event and she is now responsible for raising funds for and delivering over 1,000 Thanksgiving meals to local families in need. Michele will be presented with her award at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Sarasota on December 13th. Cocktail hour begins at 6 p.m., the program will start at 7 p.m., and tickets are available for $55. If you wish to participate on her Tanner's Turkeys committee or contribute in any way, please email her at TannerSells(at)gmail(dot)com.
