(Wayne, NJ) -- The Passaic County Board of REALTORS® (PCBOR®) has raised over $12,000 for partnering organization, The Valerie Fund through various fundraising efforts. The Valerie Fund is a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive care to children with cancer and blood disorders and their families at 7 pediatric hospitals in NJ, NY and metro Philadelphia.
The Valerie Fund was chosen as the designated charity by PCBOR® President, Judith Mizzone. The Association has held several fundraising campaigns and events for the charity, including an arts and crafts supplies drive for the organization’s summer camp, the Annual Charity Golf Outing on June 6, 2018, and The Valerie Fund Walk on June 9, 2018.
More than 100 golfers and PCBOR® members participated in the Annual Golf Outing held at the Black Bear Golf Course where they spent the day, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., playing a friendly game of golf while also raising money and awareness for the nonprofit organization. The event alone raised $10,000 for the charity.
On June 9, PCBOR® members gathered a team in Verona Park for The Valerie Fund Walk & JAG Physical Therapy 5K Run.
The Realtor® organization has been a massive presence in the helping community, as members partake in various fundraisers throughout the year. PCBOR® will hold a Beefsteak Tricky Tray fundraiser in October, which will also benefit The Valerie Fund.
The check will be presented to The Valerie Fund at PCBOR®’s Fall General Membership Meeting at The Brownstone on September 27, 2018.
