Allen Tate Realtors® in the Triad recently raised more than $32,000 to benefit public education, as part of the company’s 19th Annual FUNday event.
For the past 19 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 were held throughout the company’s footprint in North and South Carolina. To date, FUNday has raised more than $1.65 million for public education across the Carolinas.
More than 220 people attended the Triad event, a semi-formal garden party held September 29 at Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden in Kernersville. The evening’s festivities included silent and live auctions, a 50/50 drawing, wine pull, reception and dancing.
“We are thrilled with the incredible success of our 2016 FUNday event. The commitment of Allen Tate agents, staff and sponsors enabled us to increase our net fundraising this year,” said Cindy Davis, FUNday Triad event chairperson. “Public education is vital to our children and our local community, and we are delighted that our efforts will allow us to make meaningful contributions across the Triad region.”
Local education organizations that will benefit from Allen Tate FUNday dollars include Alamance Burlington School System, Asheboro City Schools, Davidson County Education Foundation, The Enrichment Fund for Guilford County Schools, Guilford Education Alliance, Randolph County School System, Rockingham County Schools, and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.
