LLS Charity Fundraisers By Our Super Team
We would like to take this opportunity to praise our extended Morguard family for their amazing efforts in raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Throughout the year, our employees have been working hard to raising money for LLS through community car washes, raffles, Light The Night Walks and The First Annual Morguard Charity Golf Fundraising Event. At Morguard, giving back truly starts with the amazing efforts of our employees, sponsors, volunteers and attendees of these meaningful events.
Each of these recent charitable events serves the greater purpose of helping us attain our company-wide goal of raising $150,000 for LLS. We also appreciate those of you who have been giving back to LLS by shopping online with AmazonSmile. If giving back is something important to you, we’re always looking for qualified people considering positions in apartment management and property management.
1st Annual Morguard Charity Golf Tournament
We are so thankful for the great turnout and community response for our first ever Morguard Charity Golf Tournament Fundraising Event. From the sponsors and staff members to those golfing, dining, and winning raffle prizes, we thank you for being a part of our event and for the positive feedback.
“My group had an excellent time at the golf outing. We thought the entire event was well run from start to finish. The Mimosas and Bloody Marys were a particularly nice touch to start off the day! The Morguard staff is extremely friendly and made it a pleasant experience. We will be back for round 2 next year!”- Kellen
Our golf tournament fundraiser took place at TPC Eagle Trace Golf Course on October 11, and directly benefited LLS and the upcoming Light The Night (LTN) Walks. We’re hoping that, apart from raising much needed funds for LLS, our event helped bring hope not only to cancer survivors, but to the families of those battling cancer.
“I would to thank you for the opportunity to play in your tournament. It was a lot of fun and I had a lot of great laughs and memories to cherish from that day. I try to play in as many charity golf tournaments as I can, considering my mother has stage 4 breast cancer, so I know it’s for a good cause. Thank you again.”- Robert
We are also extremely grateful for our inspired staff members who invested their time to participate in this highly successful fundraiser, and we look forward to the 2nd annual tournament. To all of you who won prizes, and played a good round, congratulations!
“Wow! What an amazing event you hosted for LLS. On behalf of our patients and families, thank you for your incredibly hard work, dedication, and commitment to our mission. You all rock!”- LLS South Florida Team
Community Car Washes and Raffles
We are pleased to report that Team Cajun Hearts from Steeplechase Apartment Homes in Lafayette, LA sold several raffle tickets and held a Jambalaya Luncheon to raise money for LLS. The raffle drawing included prizes such as a BBQ grill, tickets to the local college football game and a manicure/pedicure gift certificate. We want to thank Team Captain, Steeplechase Community Manager and Leukemia Survivor, Bobbie Camel, for organizing the event and for sharing about her experience battling Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. We would also like to thank all of the personal donations of our staff, residents and local community members, which lead to Team Cajun Hearts raising $725 for the LLS Light the Night cause!
Our community car washes at Verandah at Valley Ranch in Irving, TX, Retreat at Spring Park in Garland, TX, and Barrett Walk in Kennesaw, Georgia, were also a huge hit. We thank our office and maintenance staff, as well as their family members, for participating in these events on a Saturday morning! Residents and members of the community were lined up for the car washes, and most patrons generously gave more than the $5 recommended donation. At Verandah, we raised $140, at Spring Park we raised $220 and Barrett Walk raised over $400 towards our team goals. We are proud of the collaboration and accomplishments at these communities.
