With Clam Chowder and Madonna, Intero Agents Get Creative Giving Back
Posted by Teressa Francis — October 22, 2012
Cupertino, California – A random act of kindness, paying it forward, giving, this is how to best describe the actions of two very generous Intero Real Estate Services Realtors® who recently made large donations to the Intero Foundation in very unconventional ways - Julie Wyss with Madonna tickets, and Kim Connor with Sam’s ChowderMobile.
The Intero Foundation is a non–profit organization founded by the leadership and agents of Intero Real Estate Services, Inc. in 2002. The foundation has raised more than $2 million to benefit children living in the local communities. Most often Intero agents choose to give on a monthly basis or during each real estate transaction, but within the same week Intero had two benevolent agents who thought outside the box and got creative.
Wednesday October 3rd, Intero agents and guests from all over the south bay came together to enjoy Sam’s ChowderMobile Intero’s Saratoga office on Saratoga Avenue. This event was organized by Kim Connor, a Realtor® in that office. The result of this event was a generous donation to the Intero Foundation from Kim Connor who matched the sales of the event. Kim ended up making a personal donation of $3,200 to the foundation.
Also last week, Julie Wyss a Broker Associate at the Intero Los Gatos office, auctioned off two tickets to the sold out Madonna MDNA Tour who was performing this past Saturday October 6th, at the HP Pavilion in downtown San Jose. The highest bidder, Candace Levers, a Realtor® from Intero’s Saratoga office, wrote the check for $760 directly to the Intero Foundation.
Gino Blefari, President and CEO of Intero Real Estate Services says “It never ceases to amaze me the generosity of our Intero agents and it’s great to see them thinking outside the box to raise money for the Intero Foundation. These agents are a perfect example of the values that guide our business.”
