Shorewest Gives to Urban Camp – Corporate Fundraiser Benefits Urban Camp
A corporate-wide fundraiser by Shorewest employees recently raised close to $1,000 for Timber-lee’s Urban Camp Scholarships.
Shorewest is the number one real estate agent in Wisconsin and the idea for the fundraiser came from a recent visit to Timber-lee by Oneida Wheeler to Erika Czarnecki of Shorewest’s Delavan, WI office. Erika has a strong history with Timber-lee that goes back to 1983 when she was a camper. Their idea? To submit Timber-lee’s Urban Camp as a beneficiary to their “casual day” event! As an Urban Camp Volunteer since 1991, Erika knew first hand the positive impact of Urban Camp on inner city youth and quickly submitted her paperwork.
The results? Executive Vice President John Paul Horning was proud to personally present to Erika a check after successfully raising almost $1,000 for this summer’s Urban Camp 2012!
We thank the Shorewest team of professionals who gave so willingly to this life-changing project. Donations to Urban camp meet a critical need as 100% of all the youth that attend use a scholarship.
You too can make a difference in the lives of youth and adults. Whether it’s a corporate-wide fundraiser or a few dollars from your hard-earned paycheck, that donation of love can change lives. We know. We’ve seen it happen.
