Now that summer is winding down and kids are settled back in school, it seems to be the “season” for everything – football season (and the end of baseball season), apple-picking season, fall yard work season, community festival season, etc.
At Allen Tate Company, it’s FUNday season. For 17 years, Allen Tate Company has held annual FUNday events, where agents “pay to play” to raise money for public education in the local communities we serve throughout the Carolinas.
During that time, we’ve held field days, golf tournaments, dance parties, karaoke contests, corn hole competitions, tailgates, chili cook-offs and silent and live auctions. We’ve played in the rain and baked in the sun. And during those years, we’ve grown exponentially as a company and expanded our footprint to other regions.
This year – for the first time in FUNday history – we will hold four unique events, one in each of our regions.
We’re making history in another way, too. This year’s FUNdays will actually be FUN nights! In each of our regions, we’ll host an evening event with food, drink and our famous silent and live auctions.
We’ll kick-off FUNday season with an evening reception on September 24 in the Upstate. We’ll “roll out the red carpet for public education” in the Triad on October 2 and hold two FUNday events on October 9, when we’ll embrace our inner Mad Men in the Triangle and party at the Panthers home at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
And while our agents are having FUN (and they do have loads of FUN), we’ll be raising FUNDS (lots of FUNDS) for the kids. In the past 10 years, we’ve raised more than $1.4 million from this event – which stays in our local communities to benefit education foundations and other initiatives that directly impact public education.
Why do we do this? Because we understand how important public education is to families making home-buying decisions. We believe in working together and giving back to make a difference that, yes, impacts our business – but most importantly, impacts the quality of life in our communities.
So we’re ready to have some fun. If you’d like to help, please contact any Allen Tate Realtor. Share in the joy of FUNday season!
