Top fundraisers from the ERA Real Estate network recently traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the 2011 Muscular Dystrophy Association Labor Day Telethon on September 4th to present funds raised by the entire ERA® franchise system. The $488,000 contribution represented the 2010 fundraising effort of the entire ERA Real Estate franchise network on behalf of MDA.
Led by Melissa Campbell, ERA Real Estate’s Director of Public Relations and MDA Liaison, the ERA contingent included representatives from the top two fundraising companies in the ERA network for 2010: Cathi and Mike Williams from ERA Shields Real Estate in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which was responsible for raising $38,849, and Jose and Alzira Castelo from ERA Jose S. Castelo Real Estate in New Bedford, Massachusetts, whose team raised $35,249.
“Thanks to generous public support and the truly unrivaled year-round involvement of thousands of local, regional and national sponsors, MDA-funded research is making rapid progress toward treatments and cures,” saysGerald C. Weinberg, MDA President and CEO. “Equally important, our 200 hospital-affiliated clinic network has already achieved significant quality of life and longevity gains for people living with progressive muscle diseases.”
