Throughout the month of May, our real estate industry would typically be gathering at The Half Penny for AmeriTitle Idol. This is where several brave souls take center stage to sing their hearts out to benefit the designated non-profit of the week.
This will be the second year of a forced hiatus due to the pandemic. An overall lack of events has been a hard hit to fundraising opportunities for non-profits during a time when there is dramatically increased need.
We don’t want another AmeriTitle Idol season to go by without some effort to replace or exceed the funds that would’ve been raised. We have organized a ‘replace the funds challenge’ with a specific focus each week.
Week 1: 5/3 – 5/9 – COMMUNITY FOCUS
Each of our branches selected a place to give back in our local communities.
– Salem: Isaac’s Room / IKE Box
– Silverton: Sheltering Silverton
– Albany: Family Tree Relief Nursery
– Corvallis: Jackson Street Youth Services
– Lebanon: PNW Adult & Teen Challenge
Week 2: 5/10 – 5/16 – SUPPORTING CHILDREN
Boys & Girls Club
Safer Childhoods | Life-Enhancing Programs | Caring Mentors
Watch for donation links that will benefit the club supporting children in your area.
Week 3: 5/17 – 5/23 – FILL THE BOWL
Food insecurity is at record levels. No family should have to worry about how they will get their next meal. This week we’ll be supporting Marion / Polk and Linn / Benton Food Share.
Week 4: 5/24 – 5/30 – HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. There will be opportunities to support your local chapter.
To encourage the opening of pocketbooks, AmeriTitle is giving a generous funds infusion of $1,000 each week, for a total of $4,000 to our local non-profit organizations.
Restaurants have also been devastated over this last year. The AmeriTitle Idol event would typically be filling The Half Penny to capacity in the middle of each week in May. We encourage you to show your support for our venue to replace some of those funds. Stop in and say hello to Monty, Gary, and the crew. Their warm hospitality is always a treat. Please make a point to visit all of your favorite restaurants. Our collective support will help keep them around to enjoy for a long time.
We will be sending weekly updates and encouragement to create this boost for our friends and neighbors in need. You give. We give. Together, we contribute to a vibrant real estate economy that begins with a healthy community.
Help us spread the word! Please follow the AmeriTitle Facebook page in your area and share our weekly fund-raising posts.
