REALTORS® Golf Classic Proves To Be An Ideal Setting For Fun, Networking And Generosity

More than 400 real estate professionals are expected to take part in the 2010 REALTORS® Charitable Foundation (RCF) Golf Classic, to be held on July 12, at Shadow Pines, Shadow Lake, and Greystone Golf Clubs.

Participants will have an opportunity to take a day off from what is normally a very busy time of the year for REALTORS® and other professions associated with the real estate industry, while raising money for a very worthy cause. The annual event is open to the general public and is hosted by the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS® (GRAR), Gateway Funding, and WROC TV 8/Fox Rochester.

The REALTORS® Charitable Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS®, an organization that provides resources, education, and promotes professionalism for its more than 3,000 members. RCF supports charitable organizations that help to increase affordable home ownership opportunities, build healthy neighborhoods, or mitigate critical housing needs. Since its inception in 2001, the Foundation has awarded more than $430,000 in grants to 35 local charitable organizations. It receives its support from area REALTORS®, GRAR, and various other fundraisers. Last year’s golf tournament netted more than $23,000.

“This is a good example of how REALTORS® are giving back to the community,” said Cindy B-Rosato, an area REALTOR® and chair of the RCF Board of Directors. “As real estate professionals, we recognize that a vital part of aspect of doing business is taking responsibility for helping to preserve and enhance the quality of life in our community.”

News 8 Now at Sunrise and Noon Anchor Katrina Irwin and well-known local personality Dee Alexander will co-emcee the dinner portion of the event.
