More than $6,500 raised for Habitat for Humanity, Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic
The Long & Foster Companies raised more than $6,500 for Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia and Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic during a charity golf tournament at 1757 Gold Club in Dulles, Va., on June 25. This was the largest amount ever raised during the three years of the tournament, which was sold out with 120 golfers in attendance this year. The winning foursome included Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, Steve Wydler of the Wydler Brothers, Matt Benson, an agent with Long & Foster’s McLean, Va., office, and Barak Sky of The Sky Group, and they shot a 54, which was 16 under par.
“This year’s event was a tremendous success, filled with great golf and fun—all in the name of two outstanding charities—Make-A-Wish and Habitat for Humanity,” said Dave Rotell, vice president and area manager at Prosperity Home Mortgage and coordinator of the golf tournament. “Not only did we attract a sell-out crowd, but we far surpassed our expected donations—more than doubling the $3,000 we anticipated raising.”
Sponsors of the event included Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, Long & Foster Insurance, Long & Foster Real Estate, RGS Title and Long & Foster Home Service Connections—all part of the Long & Foster family of companies. Additionally, Fair Oaks Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Chantilly, Olympia Moving & Storage, US Inspect, Belfor Property Restoration, 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, and HMS Home Warranty (Long & Foster Home Warranty Plan) each contributed to the event as sponsors.
“At Long & Foster, we’re dedicated to giving back to the neighborhoods in which we live and work, and no matter if we’re participating in a charity golf tournament like this event or volunteering during our annual Community Service Day initiative, we’re always thrilled to support the local community,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & Foster Companies.
