Nonprofit seeking real estate agents for Scottsdale event

Each year, the Active 20-30 Club of Scottsdale hosts a charity sporting competition called Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefitting Children.

In 2016, close to 60 teams, made up of commercial and real estate agents, will go head to head in multiple competitions on April 8 at Scottsdale Stadium.

The Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club is starting to plan the upcoming year’s event and wants to get the word out to try and recruit even more residential and commercial real estate agents to join to surpass last year’s fundraising efforts.

Throughout the year, these real estate teams and industry workers will raise money through various fundraising efforts for two charities, Boys Hope Girls Hope (on the Brokers for Kids Side) and the Care Fund (for Agents Benefitting Children), according to a press release.

The teams will come together to participate in the Olympiad Championship which includes basketball free throws, football toss, baggo, giant Jenga and bocce ball. The teams that raised the most from each side will be recognized at this action packed day—all for a great cause.

Boys Hope Girls Hope is a non-profit that provides scholarships to underprivileged kids in both community-based and residency-based programs, ensuring a good start towards a college education. The Care Fund provides mortgage, rent and housing expense relief, as well as related lifestyle resources during a child’s extended health crisis.

The public can also get involved by purchasing raffle tickets to win a new 2016 Toyota from Valley Toyota Dealers. The tickets will be available for purchase at scottsdale2030.org soon. Each ticket is $25 or five raffle tickets for $100. Last year, the events raised more than $350,000.

The Active 20-30 Club of Scottsdale was founded with the single objective of supporting children’s charities. The organization provides young adults with an opportunity for personal growth, friendships, and leadership development while improving the quality of life for special needs children in the community, the release stated.
