Night of 100 DinnersI’m having my best month ever in real estate and this allows me to give back to the community. I am so proud to have been the lead sponsor of The Achieve Foundation’s Night of 100 Dinners this past Saturday evening. I love the concept of Night of 100 Dinners because it’s so grassroots. This year about 50 community members hosted dinners in their homes for friends and neighbors — each of whom donates $50 to attend — the event helps bring the community together while raising money for the South Orange – Maplewood public schools. The event raised about $75,000 this year.

Since it was founded in 1999, Achieve has invested $1.8 million dollars in the schools, which translates into roughly $200,000 each year to support the education of all South Orange & Maplewood students. Achieve’s “Take a Seat Campaign” enabled the renovation of the Columbia HS auditorium.
