(LAS CRUCES) – Steinborn & Associates Real Estate launched their third annual internal fundraising campaign on September 17, 2013, with the help of the NMSU Aggies Are Tough Enough to Wear Pink (TETWP) campaign co-chairs. John and Amy Hummer challenged their REALTORS® and staff to collectively donate $6500, and in turn, they would match their team dollar-per-dollar up to an additional $6500. Thereby the Steinborn & Associates Real Estate team would make a $13,000 cash donation to the 2013 Tough Enough campaign.
By close of business on October 16, 2013, the Steinborn & Associates Real Estate team raised $14,515.00 in cash donations and also gave $6,669.04 for in-kind breast cancer awareness promotions, making the total donation, $21,184.04!
In 2011 their team raised $12,000 in cash donations and in 2012 they raised $13,900; each year growing upon the success of the previous year.
The three year total is: $40,415 in cash donations and $27,613 for in-kind breast cancer awareness promotions, make the total donations from the Steinborn & Associates Real Estate team for the 2011-2013 campaigns: $68,028.86.
“As a company we again committed to be a Major sponsor of the 2013 Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign,” says John. “We challenged our team that if they raised $6500, the company would match it. We had truly amazing fundraising efforts by our team and I’m happy to announce we’ve surpassed this year’s goal!”
“We proudly support the courageous women and men in our office and across Southern New Mexico who have been affected by breast cancer,” shares Amy. “The Steinborn team has continually shown amazing support of the TETWP campaign. Everyone here takes great pride in our community. We all agree breast cancer research and awareness are critical. It is an honor to help raise money for such a great cause.”
“As a breast cancer survivor I donate to the TETWP campaign because I believe research is extremely critical to finding a cure,” says Mary Holliday, REALTOR® and three-year Steinborn campaign contributor.
“The local business community has supported our work since day one,” said TETWP co-chair Pat Sisbarro. “Even in this challenging economy the Steinborn group has made the PINK campaign a priority. We’re so grateful for their support.”
