Every year, Allen Tate agents, employees and guests gather to raise money for local public education organizations. This year, four separate regional FUNday events will be held through the company’s footprint in North and South Carolina.

Festivities included line dancing, silent and live auctions, a diamond drop and gift card giveaway.

The Allen Tate brand truly represents community service and investment.”
