“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu
For the third consecutive year, the South Tampa office of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty held a haunted house fundraiser to benefit Best Buddies Tampa Bay. The event featured a scare zone, a live performance by DJ Iron Mike Housefield and food from 4 Rivers Smokehouse and was held a week before Halloween. More than 75 witches, superheroes, fairies and ninjas attended and resulted in $2,000 raised to support the growth and mission of Best Buddies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Managing Broker Kurt Gleeson of the South Tampa office is a member of the Best Buddies Tampa Bay advisory board and is competing with 25 other fundraisers in the Champion of the Year Campaign, which will conclude at the Champions Gala on November 18, 2016, at The Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St. Petersburg.
