The agents, managers and staff of Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie Real Estate in partnership with the World Transformation Center (WTC), hosted a Charity Poker Tournament on Friday, April 26 that raised over $27,000 for The Children’s Village of Sonoma County. The event, held at the Zio Fraedo’s restaurant in Pleasant Hill, drew over 200 people from the company, in addition to partners, sponsors and donors.
Funds were raised at the event through the generous donations of many, including, Land Home Financial, who gave the Grand Prize winner a one month’s paid mortgage, up to $5000. The contribution from Land Home Financial Service not only impacted Children’s Village but also made a difference in a homeowner’s life.
In addition to the poker tournament, the evening also featured raffle prizes, a Live Auction and a Silent Auction, in which each Mason-McDuffie office donated gift baskets.
“Our offices and agents are totally committed to making a difference for others in the community. We chose The Children’s Village because of the great work they do with children in foster care,” said Kathy Ollerton, Director of Charities for Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie Real Estate and founder of the WTC.
The Children’s Village, located in Sonoma County, establishes a stable, family like setting for children in foster care, minimizing the upheaval and disruption of multiple placements, and providing the opportunity for siblings from all over the Bay Area to grow up together.
