Realtors Association Raises $100,000 for Local Charities

La Canada Flintridge Outlook

The Community Services Committee of the Pasadena Foothills Association of REALTORS (PFAR) has raised more than $100,000 for local charities this year, breaking all previous records since the committee formed 15 years ago.

Dedicated Realtors and Realtor affiliates donate their time and talents to hold fundraising events throughout the year, starting with the Murder Mystery Dinner in January, a St. Patrick’s Day celebration in March, a Casino Night in the Spring, a wine tasting in early summer, the Taste of Old Pasadena in September, Bingo in November and a Christmas Wreath auction in December.

The success of these events enables the Pasadena-Foothills Association of Realtors to help the community, from providing nine scholarships to local college-bound students, to donating $10,000 each to such incredible local charities as the Harambee Family Center, Door of Hope, Ronald McDonald House of Pasadena, Rosemary Children’s Services, Union Station and Tierra Del Sol.

Support also goes to Casa de Amigas, Foothill Unity Center, The Grandview Foundation, The Mother’s Club, Neighborhood Urban Family Center, Pasadena Day Nursery, the Salvation Army, and the Sycamores.

“The Community Services Committee strives to improve the quality of life for members of our community who could really use a helping hand,” said Kirk Dilbeck, the committee’s chairman. “From Sunland-Tujunga across the Foothills to Pasadena, we are trying and succeeding in making a difference. I am so proud of the hard work of our committee and of the hundreds of Realtors and affiliates who support us throughout the year.”

Anyone wishing to help the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors help others may call (626) 795-2455 for tickets to any of their events.
