Weichert Realtors Press Release Weichert, Realtors Reaches Highest-Ever Single-Year Donation for American Cancer Society 9/18/2017 Weichert, Realtors successfully raised $172,000 during its 17th Annual Charity Outing to benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS) and breast cancer research. Proceeds from the event exceeded all previous years’ donations and bring the grand total that Weichert has raised for the ACS and breast cancer research to an impressive $1.212 million since the annual fundraiser began in 2001. Held annually at the picturesque Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, N.J., this year participants included more than 230 golfers, “Member for the Day” packages, “A Day at the Spa” option, and tennis enthusiasts, all inclusive of a buffet luncheon and three-hour cocktail reception. The evening banquet hosted awards, prizes and a silent auction. Over 43 volunteers helped make this event a success with TV and radio personality Bill Spadea as the emcee. As a reminder of the true importance of the Charity Outing, special guest speaker and breast cancer survivor Darlene DiSabatino bravely shared her story and battle with attendees. This both reminded and encouraged listeners to share their generosity in support of others, who like Darlene, are fighting cancer. “This outing marked an incredible, record breaking year of contributions raised since the beginning of Weichert Realtors’ 17- year endeavor to help fund breast cancer research,” said Robyn Barone, event chairperson and regional vice president for Weichert, Realtors. “Not only did we see more dedicated involvement than ever before in sponsors, donations, participants and volunteers, but I am also incredibly proud of our residential sales offices and the hundreds of people who raised additional funds across multiple states by holding their own unique events.” Type your paragraph here.
