Recently, 1st Lake Properties put their passion for community service into action to support United Way and the Susan G. Komen foundation in honor of breast cancer survivors. Two 1st Lake team members initiated fundraising campaigns for each organization and together they raised over $10,000 with “Jeans and Jersey Day.”
Jeans and Jersey Day was a raffle for a two night stay at the Four Points Sheraton Downtown hotel, donated by Flooring Depot of Elmwood. Direct donations in addition to the raffle were also welcome. Christian Rooney, owner of Flooring Depot said, “1st Lake Properties has always been involved in community service, and we wanted to help them raise more funds.” Thanks to Flooring Depot’s generous donation, the raffle was a big success.
Both United Way and Susan G. Komen rely on corporate sponsorships and 1st Lake Properties values the opportunity to support these important foundations. Michele Shane L’Hoste, President of 1st Lake Properties, said, “Several of our employees have been affected by cancer or financial hardship either personally or someone they care for. We are pleased to see their willingness to give back. We get calls from the team members asking when the Susan G. Komen walk is or what the raffle will be for the United Way campaign.”
To get involved in volunteer and charity efforts such as these, contact 1st Lake Properties for career or residential availability, and you’ll be on the path to becoming a member of a socially conscious and caring community.
