There’s always a little bit of guilt that comes from going out to eat at a nice restaurant, when you know that the money spent on three courses could have gone to help someone less fortunate . But this Thursday, throughout Washington, D.C., one organization will end that disparity, at least for a day, by bringing together two different acts: dining out and donating to charity.
Lindsey Jones, the Administrative and Marketing Assistant at Avery-Hess' Tysons Corner office, has coordinated a fundraiser to help people affected by the earthquakes in Haiti. Visit the American Red Cross to find out more about how you can help the victims in Haiti: www.redcross.org
At Avery-Hess, Realtors we follow the weekly tradition of Casual Friday when agents and staff may dress-down on the final day of the workweek. However, in light of the recent earthquakes in Haiti which have claimed thousands of lives and displaced thousands more, we hope to turn this weekly routine into something to help others.
Avery-Hess, Realtors would like to invite members of the community to a fundraising event hosted by Prospects Sports Training. Please join Prospects Sports Training on Saturday, January 23, 2010 from 3pm to 6pm as they preview their facility to the public with this fundraiser.
As the 2009 holiday season winds down, we at Avery-Hess would like to take the opportunity to encourage you not to forget the less fortunate during the holidays, and all throughout the year. At the Rockville office's holiday luncheon, Executive Vice President David Hess shared a few words about the charitable contributions made by staff members and agents of Avery-Hess' Rockville Regional Office.
Late last winter, Lucille Ryan, an agent from our Tysons Regional Office came to us with an idea. Lucille is a top-producing Real Estate agent, and has been for many years. However, her idea had nothing to do with Real Estate. Before I share what her idea was, let me tell you a little about Lucille. Lucille is just a wonderful lady. She is very active in her community, volunteers at the local hospital, is very well respected by her peers in the Real Estate community.
Simply put, Lucille is just a great human being.
Now on to the idea. Lucille was raising money for an organization called "Chasing Lions," a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting orphans and children in Burkina Faso.
