Daniel Island Real Estate Team Raises $5,100 at Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure
Daniel Island Real Estate team - whose members included employees at Daniel Island Real Estate, the Daniel Island Company and the Daniel Island Club - collectively raised $5,139 for the Komen Lowcountry affiliate.
The money raised includes a matching donation from the Daniel Island Company’s Employee Advised fund, which collects charitable contributions primarily through payroll deductions from employees at the Daniel Island Company and its subsidiaries. An advisory committee reviews requests for contributions to area non-profit organizations nominated by company employees throughout the year. Priority is given to matching contributions that extend the reach of employees’ personal giving activities.
“I want to thank our amazing team this year with their fundraising efforts,” said team captain Nichole Orvin, Operations Manager at Daniel Island Real Estate. “Our top fundraisers were Amy Moyer of the Daniel Island Company and Michael Steele of the Daniel Island Club. However, many of our team members surpassed their personal goals this year. We are also thankful to the Employee Advised Fund for matching our results. Although we are pleased with this year’s fundraising efforts, we are hoping to have a larger team next year and to raise even more money for this worthy cause.”
“We are so proud to have the Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure as one of the signature events on Daniel Island each year,” said Rick Vale, Vice President of Sales for Daniel Island Real Estate. “It’s truly an honor to be involved as a sponsor, and we love seeing the town turn pink during the month, and especially on Race day, in the spirit of finding a cure.”
