Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club raises $500K for children’s charities
On April 21, the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club hosted its annual charity sporting competition called Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefitting Children. Nearly 600 residential real estate agents and commercial real estate professionals went head-to-head at Scottsdale Stadium, all for a good cause.
The 68 teams participated in an Olympiad Championship which included football toss, basketball toss, bag toss, bocce ball, and dodgeball. On the Brokers side, Team VEREIT won the Brokers Cup for most money raised for the second consecutive year and the Jones Lang LaSalle Team won the Brokers Olympiad Cup for most competition wins. For Agents Benefitting Children, Jennifer Wilson’s team with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s won the Agents Cup for the most money raised for also the second consecutive year and the Agents Olympiad was won by Stunning Homes Realty for the third consecutive year.
Throughout the year, these real estate teams and industry professionals have been raising money through various fundraising efforts for two charities, Boys Hope Girls Hope and the Care Fund. Boys Hope Girls Hope is a non-profit that provides scholarships to underprivileged youth in both community-based and residency-based programs, ensuring a good start towards a college education. The Care Fund provides mortgage, rent, and/or housing expense relief, as well as related lifestyle resources for families during a child’s extended health crisis.
“This year we raised more money than we ever have,” said Brokers event chairman Kelly Lannan. “Everyone worked so hard to surpass goals we had set in years past.”
This is the 18th year for Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club’s Brokers event and the 4th year for Agents Benefitting Children.
“It’s really incredible what we were able to achieve,” said Agents Benefitting Children chairman, Ben Tobias. “It’s a fun day of spirited competition and networking, but at the end of the day—it’s all about the money raised for the charities that we that we all support.”
Along with the activities that day, Even Stevens Sandwiches provided food for participants and Valley Toyota Dealers raffled off a car. Other major sponsors included Stearns Bank and Great American Title Agency.
