Intero Realtors Collect $15,600 in 30 days for Local Kids in Need
Posted by Teressa Francis — May 22, 2013
CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA – The REALTORS® of Intero Real Estate Services have proven time and time again that they are committed to the local communities in which they serve, especially when it comes to the children who need it most.
In fact, within the last 30 days agents around the bay area pulled together more than $15,000 benefitting the company’s non-profit organization, the Intero Foundation, dedicated to positively impacting the growth and wellbeing of children in the local community.
Collectively, agents organized three fundraisers, all of which became more successful than expected.
First, in the parking lot of the Intero Saratoga office, Sam’s ChowderMobile was hosted. This food truck is well known in the area for featuring Sam’s Chowder House of Half Moon Bay’s infamous lobster rolls and clam chowder. Intero REALTOR®, Kim Connor orchestrated this event, and out of the goodness of her own heart matched the truck’s sales that afternoon donating $3,500 directly to the Intero Foundation.
On Saturday May 4th, the devoted Intero Saratoga office hosted Hot Wheels for Kids, an annual car show which featured over 70 cars ranging from a 2011 Challenger Hemi to a 1930 Ford Model A. There was a visit from special guest – Dwight “The Catch” Clark, former San Francisco 49er who donated an autographed football, complete with a drawing of “The Catch” play as one of the prizes.
Trophies went to some of the most outstanding cars, including First Place Pre-1975 to John Cross with his powerful 1970 ‘Cuda, First Place Post -1975 to Bryan Rose with his pristine 2011 Challenger Hemi. “South of the Border” award went to the 1956 Chevy Delivery owned by Ronnie Ogas, and the People’s Choice was awarded to Manny Sereno’s 1930 Ford Model A.
The last fundraiser, which took place on May 9th, was a bowling night at Cambrian Bowl in San Jose. Organized by Intero Almaden’s Kraig Constantino, the event sold out quickly with 180 participants including friends, family, Intero agents, and affiliates and brought in $5,600 for the Foundation.
“Intero Real Estate Services’ agents are truly dedicated to giving back to the children in their local community,” said Cathy Jackson, President of the Intero Foundation. “No matter the time, no matter the effort, these agents care. I applaud them for going the extra mile this last month. The $15,600 donated will make a huge impact on the lives of so many local kids.”
Look forward to the next Foundation event, Saratoga Eats, A Neighborhood Food Truck Adventure, which will take place at the Intero Saratoga office on June 14th from 5-9pm. For more information about this event and other upcoming events go to interofoundation.org.
