I can’t believe it has already been four years since I joined Coldwell Banker Pinnacle Real Estate. As an active volunteer in my community, it was important for me when deciding to make a change of company, to belong to an organization that supports and gives back to the community where they do their business. What I discovered was, the people at Coldwell Banker Pinnacle, staff and sales reps alike, were a very generous group. As individuals many of them volunteer on an ongoing basis in various organizations such as Rotary, Lions Club, Optimist Club, churches, schools, coaching amateur sports, community theatre, Neighbour-to-Neighbour, and the list goes on and on.
We have a blast all year long organizing FUNdraising activities such as bar-b-ques, chili cook off competitions, 50/50 draws, used clothing sales, confectionary and snack sales, to name but a few. The bar-b-ques are the most fun as people from the surrounding businesses show up for lunch. I never knew there were so many different ways to BBQ a burger! Sometimes people driving or walking down the street stop in for a burger or two. One time we even had some contractors who were working down the street drop in for a bite. You just never know who is going to show up!!
As a group we decided a few years ago to do away with the large corporate Holiday Party and turn it into a fundraising luncheon. At this years’ luncheon, through the generosity of all my co-workers we raised almost $4,000.
What do we do with the funds we raise, you might ask? Well, over the last several years we have supported and brought a little joy to more than 30 families with more than 60 children during the Holiday Season.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Coldwell Banker Pinnacle for their tireless work and generosity and to say how proud and fortunate I am to belong to such a caring group of individuals.
I would like to wish everyone a Healthy and Happy Holiday Season!
