    Fundraiser

    Fundraiser for the Florida Keys

    Hello Friends,

    The last few weeks have been hard on everyone dealing with Hurricane Irma. I hope you are well and if you need
    any assistance please reach out to friends, neighbors, family and even myself.

    As you scroll down you will see we have planned an amazing fundraiser for the Florida Keys.

    Let me also wish you a very happy Rosh Hashanah and wishing all who celebrate a sweet New Year filled with love,
    health and peace!

    I am sending this out today to let you know about a fundraiser that I am part of for our friends that were devastated by
    the storm in the Florida Keys.

    Our family has great memories spending a ton of time in the Keys and we also have a property in Key Largo.

    We luckily had little damage but it was very hit and miss. We had a house guest here from Key Largo and happy to
    report his home was in decent shape. The neighbor next door however did not fair as well.

    We plan to enjoy many more years in Key Largo and adjoining Keys and know the people there are resilient and strong.

    Join us on September 28th at Tim Finnegans from 6 pm – 10 pm in Delray Beach.

    This is a benefit concert fundraiser and you can click the link for ticket and donation details.

    We are in need of auction items for a ” mystery box” live auction so if you would like to donate something please let me know.

    25% of all homes are now uninhabitable, 60% damaged, hundreds of businesses destroyed. Our friends in the Florida Keys are going to be without power, water, employment for an extended period of time.

    As Floridians always do, we band together to help our own.

    On Thursday, September 28th, Lisa Walsh, owner of Tim Finnegan’s in Delray Beach along with an dedicated committee of local leaders and volunteers will be hosting the “Benefit Concert For The Florida Keys”, benefiting victims of Hurricane Irma.

    During the event, starting 6pm through 10pm attendees donating $20.00 will receive 1 free well drink ( Or domestic beer and wine ), discounted food, an amazing gourmet dessert bar filled with exotic treats from South Florida’s top restaurants and caterers, and a live concert featuring one of Florida’s favorite bands, 33 Years along with our headliner, legendary Florida band and recording artists “The Joe Cotton Band”.

    There will be guest celebrity Emcee’s, comics and some really fun surprises during the course of the event!

    In addition we ask that your bring one of the following to donate: paper plates, toilet paper, plastic utensils, garbage bags, toilet paper, batteries, flashlights, diapers, neosporin, bandaids, bug spray.

    100% of the funds raised will go direct to aiding Florida Keys victims of Hurricane Irma as our hurricane relief committee is working direct with law enforcement and civic groups in the Keys to get aid directly where it is most impactful and most needed.

    Our community needs us now more than ever, and you can make a difference by joining us for this benefit concert!

    FAQs Answered by the Pros

    What steps should I take to prepare my home for sale?

    There are several things you need to know before listing your home for sale!
    A frequently asked question from home seller’s before listing is what steps should
    be taken before listing their home. Not properly preparing a home for sale can
    put a home owner at a huge disadvantage.

    The expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is absolutely
    true when it comes to selling a home. When selling a home you must be sure that
    your home presents itself in the best possible light.

    Making sure clutter is at a minimum, freshly painting rooms, installing new carpeting,
    or ensuring odors are non-existent are just a handful of things that should be done
    before listing your home for sale.
