Prudential Real Estate Network Raises $1.3 Million for The Sunshine Kids in 2009
The Prudential Real Estate Network raised more than $1.3 million for The Sunshine Kids (SSK) foundation in 2009. SSK is a national non-profit organization dedicated to serving children with cancer. Established in 1982 in Houston, TX, The Sunshine Kids Foundation provides a variety of programs, free-of-charge, for children receiving cancer treatments in hospitals across the United States, Canada, and Mexico – like trips to Colorado, Hawaii, Washington DC and other great places. Visit www.SunshineKids.org to learn more about this amazing organization.
Throughout the year, Prudential Real Estate Network members participate in many fundraising activities including golf tournaments, auctions, bake sales, and the Listing Program – where our agents voluntarily earmark portions of their commissions earned through their real estate sales. These programs, among many others, help support The Sunshine Kids.
Expressing his gratitude to the Network at the 2010 Sales Convention, G.W. Bailey, SSK executive director and Movie/TV star, said, “In a most challenging market you found it in your heart to raise $1,304,841 in 2009.”
Congratulations to the top fund-raising company, Houston’s own Prudential GARY GREENE, REALTORS who donated more than $338,000 to the foundation.
Our next great fundraiser in West Houston is the Katy Sunshine Fest in Katy, TX on Thursday, April 22, 2010. This annual event will blow the socks off of last year – which was attended by over 600 invited guests and raised over $ 30,000 for The Sunshine Kids.
The fun event kick’s off with a fantastic Fashion Show and is followed by a great evening of music, food, friends, fun and more importantly… fundraising! We will offer a great silent and live auction as well as raffle prizes. We have 6 fabulous area restaurants providing food and drinks. While we do not charge admission, we ask for a $ 10 donation at the door and hope that our guests come with hearts and wallets open for the kids.

See you there!
