This year the Board is challenging all members to expand their efforts by taking part in the Realtors® Charity Challenge, a family-friendly event and competition designed to raise money to build a home for a deserving Salt Lake family. On Thursday, June 16, the Realtors® Charity Challenge will be held at the Realtor® Campus in Sandy. The event will include food and entertainment and offers a fun way to help a family achieve home ownership. In the month of May we will be issuing a series of smaller ‘challenges’ to brokerages and agents in the hopes of some friendly competitive fundraising. The smaller challenges may include collecting non-perishable items for local food banks, books for inner-city schools and shelters, or even teddy bears for the Huntsman Cancer Hospital. The value of these items will be matched by cash donations of sponsors. All money raised throughout this year will be used to eventually sponsor and build a home for Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity. With rents and housing prices spiking, there are many desperate families looking for a home.
