Local Realtors raise $50,000 to cure type 1 diabetes
Watson Realty Corp., through it's charity initiative, Watson Cares, set a lofty goal for 2011 to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Year-long efforts resulted in reaching their goal with two days to spare!
“We are so grateful to everyone who donated their time and funds to help us accomplish this tremendous achievement,”
Fundraising was done by over 40 individual offices from St. Marys, Ga. to Kissimmee, Fla., including the Jacksonville and surrounding areas. Some of the efforts were raffle events, yard sales and craft fairs but the greatest funds raised were generated from the company-wide live concert benefit held in September. The live music performance was given by the band, Aire Traffic, which donated their time to the cause.
The $50,000 raised is more than four times the amount raised in 2010 during the first year of the Watson Cares initiative. The bar has risen even further for 2012 with the new goal set at $60,000 for JDRF. The first Watson Cares fundraising event for 2012 will be in March at the JDRF Walk for the Cure in Jacksonville, Daytona Beach and Orlando. The second annual concert event will be held at UNF on April 28, 2012. For ticket information, e-mail WatsonCares@
