RE/MAX Plus Holds First Golf Tournament
It’s common knowledge that RE/MAX Plus has an ambitious group of realtors, so it should come as no surprise that for its first golf tournament Aug. 13, they sold out Locust Hill! With 144 golfers, RE/MAX Plus raised more than $21,000 for Golisano Children’s Hospital.
Former RE/MAX employee Erin Sackett and her daughter Karleigh attended the impressive $21,251 check presentation to the hospital Oct. 16.
When Karleigh was 11 months old, she suddenly stopped crawling and standing to “cruise” along the furniture. After taking her to a neurologist, Erin learned Karleigh had a tumor pressing against her spine. Following surgery and chemotherapy, Karleigh is recovering well and back to keeping her mother on her toes.
Thank you, RE/MAX Plus, for all your support of Golisano Children’s Hospital!
Realtor’s “Feat” Raises Big Bucks for Kids
Bob Kirby of RE/MAX Realty Group put his pedals to the pavement and rode his bicycle 400 miles from Rochester to New York City to raise money for the new Golisano Children’s Hospital. This incredible feat was inspired by the work his wife, 4-1600 Nurse Manager Jeanne Kirby, and her colleagues do on behalf of our region’s sick and injured children. Bob raised $4,800. Thank you!
Double Win for Tops Friendly Markets Promotions
Rochester area Tops Friendly Markets didn’t stop after raising $28,000 for Golisano Children’s Hospital through its annual balloon sales in June. It went on to hold a sweepstakes to benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital. At the checkout, shoppers could donate $1 and in return they were entered into a raffle to win a year’s worth of groceries. The promotion raised more than $30,000! The winner was drawn at the 25th annual Children’s Hospital Gala Oct. 20 at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Congratulations, Jeanne Hebert of Hilton!
Giving Credit to Our Credit Unions
Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) is a non-profit collaboration of credit unions across the country, including many of our generous local credit unions. CU4Kids raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, so all the money raised by our local credit unions benefits Golisano Children’s Hospital. Our local credit unions always get creative with their fundraisers.
This year, our friends at WIT Federal Credit Union raised $5,000 for Golisano Children’s Hospital! Advantage Federal Credit Union donates $25 for every double the Red Wings get during home games. That promotion raised $2,700 this year. And together, the Pittsford Federal Credit Union and Summit Federal Credit Union raised $4,000 through their participation in the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile run in Washington, D.C.
A big thank you to our credit unions for going the extra mile for kids!
