EXIT Realty- Heart Walk 2017
Last year in 2016 EXIT Dubuque & Dyersville decided we wanted to make a difference in our community as a company, and together we raised just over under $500 for the American Heart Association. This year when the time approached we decided it needed to be bigger and better then last year- we could really take off with this, and that is exactly what we did!
EXIT teamed up with Fat Tuesdays Cajun Bar & Grill to put together a fundraising night- None of us knew what we were in for but we gave it our all!
*First we built our team and individual fundraising pages and started selling our hearts
*Then Bobbie took to the streets for donations from local businesses and passed out the flyer for our event night!
*After speaking to countless local business we collected enough donations to make over 20 baskets for our silent auction and loads of goodies for the bake sale that would be held during the fundraiser!
*Thursday April 13th- the day of the fundraiser came fast! With help from xtreme 107.1 we were able to spread the word even further- and offer a live broadcast during the event!
The out poor of support from our EXIT team and the community was overwhelming! We had a great turn out! Here are some photos-
*After the fundraiser we had come to the final total that we had raised $2,000! It didn't stop there tho! We continued to get donations for a few more weeks leading up to the walk!
May 6th was the day of the actual Dubuque Area Heart Walk- EXIT was there to represent the hard work put in to our fundraising and to support such a great cause! Jason & Bobbie both received top walker medals (individually raising more then $500 each!)
After the final event for the heart walk had come to an end EXIT was able to present Cathy Brandt from the American Heart Association with a check for a whopping $2,300!!
EXIT is very proud to be part of such a great cause each year, and we strive to continue to make a difference in our community that we all call home! We would like to thank Cathy for all of her help along the way, John Jost from Xtreme 107.1 for providing radio advertisement, and donating his time for a live broadcast, Neal Ruff from Ruff-N-Ready for also donating his time, and Rico Hirsch and all staff at Fat Tuesdays!
