ERA American Real Estate agents and staff raised $21,165 to send local children with muscular dystrophy to MDA Kids Camp. This year’s fundraising was the result of individual effort, rather than a sponsored corporate event. Both agents and staff created opportunities to raise money. More than half of the funds raised were given personally by ERA American Real Estate employees.

“Since we opened our doors in 1981, giving back has been an integral part of our culture,” said Gloria Frazier, ERA American president and broker. “I consider it a privilege and an honor to work alongside such caring people.”

For children who gradually lose the ability to talk, walk, hug, or breathe on their own due to muscular dystrophy, the magical experience of summer camp would seem out of reach. MDA Summer Camps provide a safe and fun experience where MDA kids create cherished memories and make new friends with children sharing similar needs. A donation of $800 sends one child to camp. 

“For nearly 35 years, ERA American Real Estate has not only advanced the profession of real estate through their collaborative culture, they have also enhanced the lives of the people who serve throughout their community-focused philanthropic efforts,” says Charlie Young, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate. “ERA American Real Estate truly embodies the commitment to community that is part of our brand’s DNA and I am deeply proud of their accomplishments.”

In February, ERA American Real Estate was awarded the 2014 Circle of Light for Community Leadership Award during the ERA Real Estate International Business Conference in Washington, D.C.

ERA American Real Estate is committed to going beyond the basic responsibilities of a broker or sales associate in order to provide complete real estate solutions and remain a positive influence within communities throughout Northwest Florida.
