Foreclosure Prevention Block Party this Saturday -- Save the Block Party

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Allegiance, Managing Broker/Branch Vice President

ForeclosureFor too many homeowners, the threat of foreclosure has become all too real a reality.  Owning a home is a big part of the American Dream and nobody wants to see someone lose their home. 


Some unique information about a way for homeowners to learn about preventing foreclosure and have some fun for the whole family this Saturday came to my attention and I thought I'd pass it along for anyone in the community who might be able to benefit from this event.




Save the Block Party


A special non-profit foreclosure workshop, “Save the Block Party” ( – official event website) will be held Fairfax, VA on Saturday Sept. 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST.  This is a unique event that relieves the stress involved in foreclosure with family fun, wholesome activities, free food and a friendly atmosphere.


The event is co-sponsored by the HOPE NOW Alliance ( and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition ( block party style event will feature family activities, barbecue and a relaxing atmosphere in which homeowners facing foreclosure can meet in-person with representatives from dozens of the nation’s leading lenders. 


David BenoitI viewed the website for the event and noticed that the following performers will be entertaining families while they learn how to save their homes:  David Benoit (renowned pianist), Honky Tonk Confidential (country band), Ka Chi (reggae and Afrobeat), and The Swimmers (indie rock).

Besides the music, in these meetings, homeowners at risk of foreclosure can find out the many alternatives available to foreclosure and potentially save their home.

HOPE NOW and PMI have successfully helped hundreds of families in this event series targeting the nation’s most at-risk real estate markets.  Homeowners seeking more information on the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac take-over  – and how this might affect their individual mortgages – are also encouraged to attend.  The event is free of charge but everyone is strongly advised to arrive early.
