Big Brother Big Sister Fundraiser

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Ron Francis of the Carolina Hurricanes (oh- and the Hockey hall of fame) at a fundraiser for the Triangle Big Brothers Big Sisters. What a great event! There are hundreds of kids on the waiting list for mentors in the Triangle. That is part of the reason why I am donating $50 of every transaction to BBBS and my company, Garman Realty will match it! That is $100 going to a wonderful cause and it will help people right here in the Triangle. Do you know someone who needs help buying or selling a home? Have them call me today so we can continue to help create "Big Magic!"


Raleigh homebuilder up for TheView's Ultimate Volunteer

Tom Gipson, one of our HBA builder members, has been selected as one of the ten finalists for the Ultimate Volunteer contest sponsored by the ABC Show, the View.  The winner of this contest will be announced nationwide on the show.  Tom is being recognized for his efforts with Habitat for Humanity and his founding of the nationwide Builder Blitz program to build houses across our country.  His charitable efforts represent the heart of our organization and we need to help him be selected as the Ultimate Volunteer.  If he wins, then all of the members of the home builders association win as well.
The winner of this contest will be determined by online voting from Tuesday through Sunday.  Please click here to vote.  You can vote once a day with your email address.
I want to encourage you to send this email/info to all of your contacts and post it on your facebook, twitter, etc.  I will be sending this out twice a day to remind everyone to vote.  Get your teenagers to post it as well.
Let’s make it happen!
