Homes & Land donates $10,000 to American Cancer Society

Corporate contribution caps off national ‘Homes & Land Cares’ Pink Campaign

NEWS RELEASE

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A $10,000 corporate donation to the American Cancer Society on March 16 capped off the most recent “Homes & Land Cares” Campaign in support of the national fight against breast cancer.

On behalf of the company and its franchisees throughout the U.S., Homes & Land Vice President Rob Wicker, Human Resources Manager Carolyn Hicks and Regional Director Doug Smidley presented a super-size pink check to representatives of the American Cancer Society at the organization’s Tallahassee office. Brittany Somerville, Community Manager/Special Events for the Society’s Florida Division, accepted the donation along with DeeDee Rudd, Vice Chairman of the ACS Volunteer Leadership Board.

The $10,000 corporate contribution was only part of Homes & Land’s efforts to support the cause. For the second year, “Homes & Land Cares” put printed pink ribbons on the covers and inside pages of more than 1 million Homes & Land magazines during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. This show of support was made possible by Homes & Land Publishers nationwide, who teamed up with local Realtors to raise awareness and money.

While the corporate check went to the American Cancer Society, funds raised independently by local Publishers and advertisers went to a variety of organizations involved in raising awareness of breast cancer, helping patients with the disease, and supporting cancer detection and research. Eighty-four Homes & Land magazines were part of the “Pink” Campaign.

Homes & Land magazines are a great platform for supporting an important cause, and our Publishers do a wonderful job of raising money in their communities,” Vice President Rob Wicker said. “We’re very proud of our success with the ‘Cares’ campaign.”

Homes & Land is one of the most trusted brands in real estate and a leading marketer of properties for sale in print and online at HomesAndLand.com. Headquartered in Tallahassee, Fla., the company supports a franchise network of 200 Homes & Land-affiliated magazines in communities throughout the United States and Canada. Homes & Land distributes more than 27 million magazines a year.
