Tallahassee Realtors Give Back
"It is not fair for you to ask of others, what you are unwilling to do yourself."
Build Day at Habitat For Humanity House!
Realtors are some of the most generous, giving individuals you will ever meet.
At Century 21 First Story Real Estate we appreciate our fellow Realtor friends and appreciate all the many roles they play in our communities. We support our colleagues, help fill community needs, work on local projects alongside local businesses and sponsor fund-raising events for some of the most needy and worthwhile causes.
Our work as volunteers and sponsors for Big Bend Hospice and their Spring Fling, as well as with Habitat For Humanity on build sites alongside deserving home-owners, or in classrooms reading to children, and ringing the bell at Christmas for The Salvation Army are just a few ways we give back to our communities. You'll find our agents and brokerage supporting fund-raising events such as the Boys and Girls Clubs and sponsor a playhouse give-a-way to help raise much needed funds for this cause as well as local Tae-Kwon-Do tournaments, local sports programs and school functions every year.
Here are just a few photos and posts of events we participated in over the years:
ABC's Extreme Home Make-Over - Tallahassee - March 2009
Many Realtors volunteered in this build whether manning a VIP tent, serving meals during the 107 building hours, site preparation and planning, construction supervision, site clean-up, painting, roofing, and even the portion I helped with, the Green Certification of the home.
The Tallahassee Board of Realtors volunteered to man the water and aid stations for the marathon. We arrived during the wee hours of the very cold morning and welcomed the runners, some very well known and others strong and filled with motivation!
Join me again for the Tallahassee Marathon Annual event.
Great American Realtor Days - Annual Event
Over 2500 Realtors gather during the Florida Legislative Session to bring to the attention of lawmakers the needs of the citizens of Florida and the issues facing their ability to afford and own homes. We meet with our legislators, participate in our Public Policy Committee hearings and gather to support other Realtors from throughout the State in their efforts to protect their industry and ability to provide services to the citizens of Florida. Being active in my association with the local and State Realtor Associations is very important to me. I will be there to help insure the citizens of Florida have a voice at the Capitol!
Realtors support the Protection of the Sadowski Fund that provides assistance for affordable housing programs in Florida every year! We are there to make sure legislators do not forget about protecting these funds and putting them to use.
I'm happy to participate in charities, and events that have not only meaning in my life but in the lives of my friends, fellow Realtors and community. Great relationships are made while helping those around us!
May 8, 2009 Relay For Life - American Cancer Society
Tallahassee Realtors for Relay Raised over $30,000 to help find a CURE for Cancer. This year, many of our members, or family and friends have been struck by cancer. Some have survived, some struggle still, and some we have lost. We walk to support research, support programs until there is a cure. Century 21 First Story Real Estate's Broker, Debbie Kirkland, is a breast cancer survivor and long time supporter of Relay for Life and the Women's Cancer Center.
We give because we care about our community and the people who we call our neighbors!
