REALTY EXECUTIVES RAISES MONEY FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY WITH CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT AT LAKE QUIVIRA

LEAWOOD, Kan. – Realty Executives Mid-America Region will raise money for Habitat for Humanity with a company-sponsored golf tournament at Lake Quivira Country Club on June 14. The Junior/Senior Golf Classic is open to the public and everyone is invited to play to raise money for the charity.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Habitat for Humanity. This golf tournament – as well as other company sponsored fundraisers this year – will pay for the construction of a sixth Realty Executives-sponsored Habitat for Humanity home in Kansas City to begin construction in the fall of 2011. The fee for a four-person team is $125 per person. The tournament will be played as a “best ball” of each team.

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, a partner of Realty Executives of Kansas City, has been instrumental in raising funds for the fifth Habitat for Humanity homes as have other company partners, local real estate agents and clients.

Steve and Nancy Summers, longtime brokers and owners of Realty Executives of Kansas City, organized the fundraiser in memory of their son, Stephen R. Summers (Jr.), and Steve’s father, Stephen A. Summers (Sr). Both beloved family members died in 2004.

The Summers wanted to honor the life and career of their son and father. The Summers choose to build dream homes for needy local families by partnering with Kansas City Habitat for Humanity because finding homes for families was important to both men.
