GLVAR donates more than $64,000 in contributions
The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors announced that it donated more than $64,000 in cash and in-kind contributions to local charities in 2010.
“I’m proud that my fellow Realtors stepped up in such tough times to help so many people and so many worthwhile causes and charities,” said 2010 GLVAR President Rick Shelton.
Shelton said GLVAR’s donations in 2010 were raised through annual events for GLVAR members and affiliates, including its golf tournament, bowling tournament and a silent auction at its annual event installing GLVAR’s new board members.
GLVAR divided its nearly $46,000 in donations this year among several local charities, led by Habitat for Humanity of Las Vegas, Variety: the Children’s Charity and the Safe Nest and Shade Tree shelters for women and children.
GLVAR and its members contributed another $18,000 worth of in-kind donations to Safe Nest, Shade Tree, Peggy’s Attic, the Whitney Elementary School and Opportunity Village.
