Caring brokers and staff members collected donations and items from a “needs list” during a special St. Patrick’s Day Happy Hour event held Thursday, March 16, 2016 at the RE/MAX of Cherry Creek office in Denver.
The fundraiser featured guest speaker Lisa Gelaude, Manager of Volunteers and Corporate Engagement at Urban Peak, who spoke about Urban Creek’s various programs that assist the homeless, the volume the charity sees on a daily basis, and how donations are vital to Urban Creek’s success and how donations are distributed. On top of the various donations that brokers and staff contributed, generous brokers also donated more than $300 in cash to purchase additional supplies needed by homeless kids, plus $100 in gift cards to restaurants and $175 in checks.
