Stockings will be stuffed and gifts will overflow in the homes of those in need this Holiday Season, due to the Medina County Board of REALTORS® 3rd Annual Designer Purse Bingo event held at The Foundry Social in Medina on November 9th, benefiting the Salvation Army’s Christmas Initiative.
Medina County Board of Realtor Affiliates, along with MCBOR CEO, Sherry Stell, and her staff, orchestrated a wonderful charity event.
Christine Dern, the 2020-21 President of the MCBOR Affiliates, not only chaired this year’s event, but was also the Emcee. Christine kept the night flowing with fun, lots of laughs and helped people embrace and reflect on the generous mood of giving throughout the evening, as the affiliate team worked diligently, selling a record amount of bingo and raffle tickets.
“It takes a fantastic TEAM to put on such a successful event and the generosity of the real estate community is overwhelming when it comes to giving back,” Christine stated. “Much appreciation needs to go out to all the MCBOR affiliates who donated their time and the beautiful purses. This year was over the top. Attendees were able to win purses from Gucci, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Tory Birch, Fount, and even a Louis Vuitton, during the games.”
This year’s event raised enough money to help over 78 children receive gifts and 29 families with food for the holidays as well as stuffing 150 stockings for children.
The Foundry Social deserves a huge thank you for opening their doors, and hearts, to make the 2020 Purse Bingo not only a safe but successful event, opening on a night that they are typically closed. The friendly staff worked hard to guarantee all COVID-19 protocol was followed.
A big thank you also goes out to all the Realtors and attendees who took their time to support this cause. This event would not have happened without their support.
Making a difference; that is what your Medina County Board of REALTORS® and the Affiliate Committee are all about.
