Russell Real Estate Services and our agents are always giving back to the local community. Many of us are involved in churches and organizations all over the area. As a company we do our best to have the biggest impact on the areas we serve. We have helped local veterans, seniors, children and animals shelters right here where we live!
Our chosen company charity for the last several years has been Make-A-Wish. Our yearly golf outing and dinner is now in it's 25th year. This years big is already well on its way and will take place August 21, 2020. As the event approaches we will be doing several other community events and work days. In May of this year we will be have our Russell Cares Week (now in it's 4th year) where we will be holding a company workday to help the community. There will be hundreds of agents participating to help give back to the areas we serve.
In the Fall we also do a huge local food drive to help those in need.
2019 Annual Golf Outing & Dinner
This year marks the 24th Anniversary of our Annual Golf Outing and Dinner. All net proceeds from this event are
donated to the Make-A-Wish® Foundation. Last years’ event was held August 16th 2019 at the newly renovated Valley
of the Eagles Golf Club in Elyria, OH.
With a sold out golf course and over 350 attendees at the dinner, the years’ event was truly outstanding. “The Great Basket Raffle” took place with over 120 beautiful baskets, valued at over $100 each which Russell agents and affiliates had put together. The proceeds from these baskets, car raffle, net proceeds from the golf outing and dinner & gifts donated by Russell affiliates made this years’ total so amazing!
2019 Donation: $122,000 Bringing our total approximate donation to Make-A-Wish: $902,875
The cost of a wish is between $8,000 and $10,000, that’s a lot of fulfilled wishes!
