For the past 18 years, Allen Tate agents, employees and guests have gathered each FUNday and “paid to play” to raise money for local public education organizations. This year, four separate regional FUNday events will take place through the company’s footprint in North and South Carolina. To date, FUNday has raised more than $1.52 million for public education across the Carolinas.
More than 220 people attended the Triad event, a Western hoedown held September 24 at The Barn at Summerfield Farms in Summerfield. The evening’s festivities included silent and live auctions, a 50/50 drawing, wine pull, reception and dancing.
“The venue was spectacular and everyone in attendance had an amazing time,” said Donna Ogletree, FUNday Triad event chairperson. “It’s wonderful to see our agents so generously support such a great cause.”
Local education organizations that will benefit from Allen Tate FUNday dollars include Alamance Burlington School System, Asheboro City Schools, Children’s Museum of Alamance County, Davidson County Education Foundation, The Enrichment Fund for Guilford County Schools, Greensboro Public Library, Guilford Education Alliance, Natural Science Center, Randolph County Schools, Rockingham County Schools, and Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools.
