Realtors celebrate American Home Week

By
From page AHW2 | April 05, 2014 |

The Northern Solano County Association of Realtors and its Charitable Foundation are celebrating the Annual American Home Week April 6-12.

This year’s theme is “There’s No Place Like Home,” which not only emphasizes the value of homeownership, but coincides with the 75th Anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz.” The Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide financial support to tax exempt organizations under IRS 501(c)(3), to give scholarships and provide educational programs that are real-estate related. The foundation has provided support for several charities in the past including Mission Solano, Housing American Families, Travis Fisher House, Heather House and Habitat for Humanity.

American Home Week is a time when local Realtors and affiliates gather to reflect on the rights and responsibilities of homeownership and work together to create a positive and vibrant community. The American dream of homeownership is not just good for families, but for the economy and country. In keeping with this philosophy, the local real estate community focuses on giving back to the community where they work and live. Several local lenders and real estate offices offer their support through a variety of sponsorships and donations. The committee is always so thrilled at the generous outpouring of support for our local charities from so many of those in the local real estate community.

The weeklong celebration will host a variety of activities, including a champagne brunch Tuesday at Rancho Solano Clubhouse in Fairfield. This popular event, attended by Realtors, affiliates and public officials, will be a fundraiser with the profits benefiting local charities.

This year, the selected charities are Opportunity House, whose mission is to provide a safe and helpful environment for homeless participants, empowering them to stand on their own to achieve a productive lifestyle in the community, and Community Action North Bay, which helps provide housing and services to veterans in our area.

The event will feature a motivational message from keynote speaker Shari Fitzpatrick, the founder of Shari’s Berries, who will share her journey of successes and mistakes and how she is now back on top and “Berried in Chocolate.” Attendees will each receive a sweet treat and have the chance to meet with several local vendors offering a variety of services. In keeping with the “There’s No Place Like Home” theme there will be a few more surprises in store for guests including a possible visit from Glinda, the good witch of the Northern Solano County Association of Realtors. The event includes many raffles items donated by local businesses, a door prize of four club-level tickets to a San Francisco Giants game donated by Adobe Mortgage, and an iPad Mini donated by the Vacaville Reporter.

For more information about this event contact the NSCAR office at 707-422-5306

Cheryl Bovee is public relations manager with Solano Mortgage and is chairwoman of the American Home Week Committee.
