$21K Raised to Support the ADK Civic Center Coalition

Southern Adirondack REALTOR, Inc. members rallied “round the rink” in July 2017 to raise $21,125 to contribute to the non profit Adirondack Civic Center Coalition’s summer fund drive to ensure that Hockey and the Civic Center operation remain a vital part of historic downtown Glens Falls, NY.  REALTOR members both individually and as part of their agencies stepped up for a three-week-blitz to raise funds in support.

The culmination (despite the rain)  was a backyard BBQ at the Southern Adirondack REALTORS office on Bay Road where members and donors were congratulated and several REALTORS “dunked” as part of the fundraising effort.  Dunker’s included; SAR President, Eden Whitaker; President-elect Sean Rogge, Treasurer-Elect Christine McKee and SAMLS Secretary Dave Strainer.  They were all great sports.

Our association recognizes the significant economic impact that having a viable, energy-filled Civic Center has in downtown and surrounding areas.  Property values are based on foot traffic and vehicle counts.  Attractability of a downtown for living, working and recreating are all based on things to do, pleasant, safe surroundings and an energy that is palpable.

We wanted to be part of that pulse!
