HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – Sumner REALTORS®, the local nonprofit trade association for REALTORS® and affiliated businesses, presented a check today for $8,200 to Habitat for Humanity of Sumner County. The association made the donation using earmarked funds from two of its largest fundraiser events in 2021.
“The REALTOR® association has a longstanding partnership with Habitat for Humanity at the local, state and national levels. Our members are naturally passionate about supporting efforts to advance homeownership in Hendersonville, Gallatin and surrounding communities and regularly volunteer their time to raise money to support Habitat for Humanity of Sumner County and other local charities. We know the funds will be used to help build homes and offer stability for our neighbors in need,” said Dave Chaney, Sumner REALTORS® Chief Executive Officer.
Sumner REALTORS® organizes several community outreach events throughout the year. Volunteers participate in Easter egg hunts in March serving underprivileged children at childcare centers in Gallatin and Hendersonville. The association also hosts a community blood drive in the spring in partnership with the American Red Cross.
In 2021, the association generated enough proceeds from its annual golf tournament and the Haunted Hustle, a Halloween-themed 5K race, to share a sizeable portion with the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and donate $1,000 for flood relief efforts in Waverly, Tenn. Last July, Sumner REALTORS® also raised $2,600 from its inaugural Poker Chip Challenge to donate to the Humane Society of Sumner County and The Jason Foundation. The association plans to host the event again this summer and increase the amount raised for charity.
The Sumner REALTORS® Annual Golf Classic will take place on Monday, October 10 at Twelve Stones Golf Club in Goodlettsville. The 2022 Haunted Hustle event is scheduled for Saturday, October 29 at the Streets of Indian Lake in Hendersonville. Both events are open to the public.
