The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association has been involved with the Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida since the beginning of 2016, in alignment with an NAR initiative between BGCA and REALTORS® nationwide to give kids a brighter future.
To date, the association has provided more than $20,000 in cash, technology, and donated items to BGCA of Central Florida through a series of projects:
• A lunchtime fundraising event coordinated by ORRA Young Professionals Network that featured food trucks and generated $700;
•The donation of more than $700 collected from the ORRA YPN 20 Under 40 Rising Star Awards White Party;
• The donation of 30 refurbished computers valued at $15,000 for use by Club Kids in the BGCA of Central Florida facility;
• The donation of snacks for a BGCA of Central Florida back-to-school party attended by 500 Club Kids and their parents; and
• The donation of refreshments and gifts to children and families attending BGCA of Central Florida’s upcoming holiday party.
In September, ORRA served as a major sponsor of a fundraising event benefitting BGCA of Central Florida. The association was a $5,800 sponsor of Orlando Signature magazine’s Barrel Night, an upscale celebration of wine, whiskey, and spirits. ORRA also supported the event by purchasing 50 additional tickets that were distributed to ORRA leadership and their guests, and encouraged members to donate and bid on gift baskets. Altogether, the event generated $5,715 for BGCA of Central Florida.
