Allen Tate Realtors® in the Triad recently raised more than $32,000 to benefit public education, as part of the company’s 21th Annual FUNday event.
Every year, Allen Tate agents, employees and guests gather 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 $2.03 million for public education across the Carolinas (not including proceeds from 2018 events).
More than 300 people attended “Denim and Diamonds,” held October 4 at Noah’s Event Venue in High Point.
The evening’s festivities included silent and live auctions, a reverse raffle, reception and dancing.
“We are grateful for the incredible success of our 2018 FUNday Denim and Diamonds event. The commitment of Allen Tate agents, staff and generous sponsors allowed us to increase our fundraising this year,” said Robert Smith, FUNday Triad event chairperson.
“Public education is vital to the young people of our local communities. We are excited that our efforts will allow us to make impactful contributions to our public schools across the Triad,” said Smith.
Local education organizations that will benefit from Allen Tate FUNday dollars include Alamance County Classroom Closet, Asheboro City Schools, Davidson County Education Foundation, The Enrichment Fund for Guilford County Schools, Guilford Education Alliance, Randolph County Schools, Rockingham County Schools, Teach for America, and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools Career Center.
