RE/MAX Southern Shores Raises 3,551 Boxes of Crayons for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for RE/MAX Month of Miracles
RE/MAX Southern Shores, the Grand Strand's top producing real estate brokerage for the last six years, proudly supports the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through awareness, donations and participation. Each RE/MAX agent donates a portion of every sales transaction to CMN. August is known as the ‘Month of Miracles,’ when all RE/MAX affiliates strongly promote and fundraise. This year, RE/MAX Southern Shores raised over 3,551 boxes of crayons that will go to McLeod Health in Florence, S.C. – the local CMN hospital.
Real estate agents are competitive by nature, which led to RE/MAX Southern Shores hosting a Crayon Challenge that had each office competing to win the coveted title of raising the most crayons. The goal was just 500 boxes of crayons, which was not only met, but crushed by over seven times the amount.
Along with the Crayon Challenge, RE/MAX Southern Shores teamed up with local restaurant Mojito’s Bar and Grill in Myrtle Beach for a Tapas Night fundraiser. A portion of the sales from the event went to CMN. In addition, the brokerage received numerous donations from theater goers throughout the month of August during the showing of ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ at the Theatre of the Republic in Conway. These events raised more than $400.
“Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an organization that is really near and dear to our hearts," said Mandy Fulford, CEO of RE/MAX Southern Shores. "The fact that RE/MAX as a brand and our affiliation can donate a portion of every sales transaction to our local children’s hospital, is just another reason why I love being a RE/MAX broker and owner. Our agents and staff are truly passionate about helping our community and we always look for creative ways to raise awareness and funds to continue to support this cause.”
