Special Olympics

Trivia Night with the Fort Smith Board of Realtors has turned out to be a huge success for raising money for Special Olympics.  Last year’s event raised $14,000. 

This year, an amazing $19,000 was raised!!

People got teams together for an evening of fun in support of a great cause; Special Olympics!  Even in a struggling economy, it’s great to see people come out and continue to give freely with their time and money.

Trivia Night is one event the Fort Smith Board of Realtors supports for Special Olympics.  Last year, the FSBOR raised almost $25,000 for the organization, and was one of the largest board contributors in the state!

I am positive we will raise more that $25,000 this year!

The Fort Smith Board of Realtors have raised a lot of money for the Special Olympics, but we know our job is not complete.  We’ve got more events during the year to build upon our current amount.  So many lives have been positively influenced through such efforts.  You can do your part and donate to Special Olympics!

I would really like to thank Brenda Garrett with Bradford and Udouj Realtors!  Brenda takes great ownership as our Chairperson for Special Olympics.  Her passion and commitment is a testament.  “Good People, Can Do Great Things!”  The Fort Smith Board of Realtors could NOT have a better Ambassador for Special Olympics than Brenda Garrett.   Thanks Brenda!!!

Hi Ray,

Hum, tried to edit my first response, but couldn't figure out how to do so in this new format.  I meant to ask more about "Trivia Night", do you have anything more about it, maybe a link?

Wow Ray - $19,000 in one night?  Outstanding!  Reaching out to our communities is certainly nothing 'trivial' (pun intended).  Thanks for your part in this.
