Our first Fundraiser 03/08/2008!!!!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with JH Realty Partners 6501309180
I want to thank everyone who participated! This first fundraiser was a HUGE success. We raised $1,000.00! It was so much fun. The hostess for the products were wonderful, and I had the most fun ringing the bell every time some one cashed in at the gold swap. Jennifer Tabor gets a special thank you, as she cashed is 2,500.00 in gold!
However our money from this event has not stopped here..........everyone who booked a party from this event, the home shopping reps are donating another 1 percent of all sales from future parties! So money will continue to roll in.
Mary Kent our sponsorship chair had the best idea for this fundraiser.....thank you Mary!
Mary Kent has more fundraisers planned, watch out for the next one, as I am sure it will be just as fun as this one was!
Donna was able to talk to the reps for membership to WCR, and Olive's had sales (we got 10 percent of those too) that exceeded their normal lunch days!
I have to say, I am over whelmed with the continued support I get from WCR! Joining this group was this best decision I have made in a long time.
A TEARFUL AND HEART FELT THANK YOU!

Thanks Mike!  I see you are a KW agent as well.  I have to say it is working at a place like KW that gives you the encouragement and motivation to reach out to others.  KW cares does so much as well!  We are very lucky!

No not through Keller Williams..........just something I started and knew my broker would stand behind me!

I did a pilot program last summer and was so ever whelmed by the responce I wanted to make it bigger and better, but could not do it by myself.  I contacted Mary Mishler, president elect at the time, now president of WCR for Grand Rapids, asked for the groups support.  In return they contacted ICCF to get on board. 

It has been a lot of work this year, lots of things to do, we are writing the play book as we go along.  However we have very smart co-chairs, and everything is going as planned!

We are working in that direction, Hal.  We hope that other chapters of WCR will take notice and do the samething in their area.........after this years event is done, we will have written a book about how to do this.  My/our biggest dream is that one year we could have landscaping happening all at the same time across the USA...............would this not be wonderful!
