Allen Tate Realtors® in the Triangle recently raised more than $25,000 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 took place through 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 150 people attended the Triangle event, The Spirit of Giving, a Halloween-themed gathering held October 25 at The Glenwood in Raleigh. Festivities included a Halloween costume contest, pumpkin decorating contest and buffet dinner.
