Prudential California Realty was recently honored for raising more than $116,000 last year to support the Sunshine Kids Foundation, a charity dedicated to enhance the quality of life for children receiving cancer treatments. For the amount of contributions that were allocated to the charity, Prudential California Realty ranked No. 5, out of Prudential Real Estate’s nationwide network of independently owned brokerages.
“The generosity exhibited by Prudential California Realty is an inspiration to all of us in the Sunshine Kids family,” noted G.W. Bailey, executive director of the Sunshine Kids Foundation. “Contributions like these will allow us to expand our services and make a positive impact on the lives of even more young cancer patients.”
Highlights of Prudential’s efforts during 2010 to support the foundation and its mission included a Texas Hold ‘Em style poker tournament at Viejas Casino, a night out at the Padre game for agents, employees and their families, and a two-hour surfing lesson for more than 30 children with cancer at the Pacific Beach Surf School.
Realtor Jim Stinnett was instrumental to the creation of the poker tournament, which raised more than $4,200; Prudential received assistance from HomeServices Lending, Pickford Escrow and The Escrow Firm to sponsor the Padre game event.
