Allen Tate Realtors® in Upstate South Carolina recently raised more than $20,000 to benefit public education, as part of the company’s 18th Annual FUNday event.
For the past 18 years, Allen Tate agents, employees and guests have gathered each FUNday and “paid to play” to raise money for local public education organizations. This year, four separate regional FUNday events took place through the company’s footprint in North and South Carolina. To date, FUNday has raised more than $1.52 million for public education across the Carolinas.
More than 200 people attended the Upstate event, An Enchanted Evening, held November 3 at the Hyatt in Greenville. The festivities included a silent and live auction, wine pull, reception and dancing. Special drawings included the Great Restaurant Giveaway ($1,500 in gift cards), drawing for an aquamarine and diamond ring, and a 50/50 raffle.
“Our guests enjoyed an enchanted evening with classic gold and silver tablescapes, adorned with twinkle lights and beautiful centerpieces of white hydrangeas and roses,” said Lindsie Sink, FUNday Upstate event co-chairperson. “Thanks to the dedication and hard work of so many caring agents and generous sponsors, we were able to raise more than $20,000 to support public education organizations in the Upstate.”
Local education organizations that will benefit from Allen Tate FUNday dollars include Greenville County Schools, Pickens County Schools, Spartanburg County Schools District #6, and Public Education Partners Greenville County (PEP). FUNday is made possible through the support of national, regional and local sponsors.
Company-level sponsors included 2-10 Warranty, Arrow, Quantum Digital and Realtor.com.
