RE/MAX Alliance Group Donates Over $19,000 to Children's Miracle Network to Help Reach $100 Million Milestone.
SARASOTA, FL August 26, 2010 – RE/MAX Alliance Group Associates have been proud supporters of the Children’s Miracle Network since 1992. In 2009 alone, they donated $19,457 to the organization. These funds have helped RE/MAX, a leading real estate franchisor, arrive at an amazing milestone: $100 million dollars raised over the past 18 years for Children’s Miracle Network, which raises funds for more than 170 pediatric hospitals. In doing so, RE/MAX became one of the top three Children's Miracle Network donors of all time.
The funds raised by RE/MAX Alliance Group go to All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL to help treat children needing expert medical care. “Supporting our local Children's Miracle Network hospital is part of the RE/MAX spirit. Our agents are immensely proud to support All Children’s Hospital” said Peter Crowley, President of RE/MAX Alliance Group . We all feel it is important to give back to this community in which we earn our living and raise our families.”
RE/MAX primarily raises funds through the Miracle Home® program where Associates make a contribution to Children’s Miracle Network with each closed transaction. RE/MAX offices and agents also sponsor golf tournaments and organize a variety of other fundraising activities throughout the year.
“When you take into account that the real estate industry was hit harder than any other by the economic recession, it’s overwhelming that RE/MAX Associates raised $7 million for Children’s Miracle Network in 2009 alone, bringing their total to a landmark $100 million,” said Scott Burt, president and CEO, Children’s Miracle Network.
”Knowing that children’s hospitals have been impacted deeply by the downturn in philanthropic giving, RE/MAX Associates worked harder than ever to support Children’s Miracle Network and the children in our communities,” said Vinnie Tracey, president, RE/MAX International, Inc.
RE/MAX has been a corporate fundraising sponsor since 1992 and has raised $100 million for children’s hospital over the past 18 years. These much needed funds given to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals may be used for specialized medical care, research and education.
