On Wednesday, October 26, the Realty Executives of Illinois in Westmont hosted a charity event called “BOO-ing for Wishes,” which benefited the Illinois Chapter of the Make A Wish Foundation.
The event had over 70 guests, all dressed in Halloween attire, participating in Cosmic Bowling, Prize Bag Raffles and a Live Auction. The auction boasted such prizes as Chicago Blackhawks tickets, Chicago Cubs tickets and tickets to an upcoming Paul Simon concert. Just over $7,000 was raised through the event.
“Realty Executives has raised $215,000 for Make A Wish over the past 10+ years,” Dan Gleason, President of the Executive Council, proudly announced after the event.
“We at Realty Executives of Illinois believe that it is important for us to give back,” Bruce Vinnick, a Realty Executive, said. “We always encourage positive efforts in the local community, as well as throughout the nation. This initiative is just us doing our part.”
The Executive Council, which is comprised of Realty Executives and real estate agents from various parts of Illinois, worked together to collect the money at this most recent fundraiser. The council also helped promote this event, encouraging other members of the community to become involved in raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation.
“Besides our solid experience and professionalism in the industry, we want our clients to know that we care about their communities,” President and CEO of Realty Executives International, Rich Rector, said.
Since it began in Phoenix, Arizona about 35 years ago, Realty Executives has become one of the fastest growing and most closely followed real estate franchises in the world. For more information, visit http://www.RealtyExecutives.com.
