Portland, October 25th, 2014. Some worthy local nonprofits, like the Sunshine Division, are benefiting this fall from Windermere Stellar‘s foundation. It’s annual golf tournament raised $50,000 to help local low-income children and families.
Beneficiaries of the donations often include nonprofits like Big Brother Big Sisters Columbia Northwest and Project Lemonade.
The sixth annual golf tournament, presented by Penrith Home Loans, was held in July at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.
Windermere Stellar broker, Nihad Aweidah, created the golf tournament in 2009 and has been spearheading it with support from other Windermere Stellar brokers and staff. Through sponsorships, raffles and golf packages, the tournament has raised nearly $225,000 in total for the Windermere Foundation over the past six years.
“Windermere Stellar is a team whose reputation is built on providing our best to each client. The golf tournament is an opportunity for us to give the same to our community and have fun doing it,” said Aweidah. “We couldn’t be more thankful for everyone’s support, which allows us to help those who need it most.”
The golf tournament is one of the many fundraising campaigns that Windermere Stellar launches throughout the year in support of the Windermere Foundation. The personal donations made by the brokers and other annual events — such as auctions, sales and galas — have raised over $2.5 million and benefited more than 135 local organizations. All of these efforts hold a common thread of supporting low-income children and families in our communities.
