Dale Sorensen Real Estate agents and staff raise funds to support Jingle Jet

 

Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE) agents and staff continued the company’s commitment to its community by raising $4,000 to support The Zazza Community Foundation’s Jingle Jet project. DSRE hosted the private, invitation only 1920’s Great Gatsby themed evening at the Suntree Country Club in Melbourne. More than 50 guests enjoyed casino games and a costume contest while 1920’s music filled the ballroom.

“The Zazza Community Foundation is a great organization and we are excited about helping them further their mission in this community,” said Donna Browning, Managing Broker for DSRE in Brevard County. “Dale Sorensen Real Estate enjoys a fantastic reputation for philanthropy. Our sales agents and staff sponsor many non-profits in our community and fully support our culture of giving. I’m very proud of the work they all do in this community.”

The event was created and managed by Browning, and DSRE office staff Jennifer Penfield and Mary Brands. Sponsors of the event included Supreme Title Solutions, Rita Bailey of KE Insurance, Chromazone Ink, Mold Trust, and Tosh Pence of Supreme Lending. Several Zazza Community Foundation members were in attendance as well.

According to the Zazza website, Jingle Jet is a unique event where neighbors, friends, co-workers, and strangers nominate families who have experienced undue hardship that adversely affects their holiday joy. A committee chooses five or more families and makes a list for each family of their needs and wants. After wrapping the gifts, they decorate and create the North Pole complete with reindeer, elves, face painters, and snowmen. The Jingle Jet plane boards each of the families and with one simple engine power down the runway with blinds closed, Jingle Jet completes another flight to the “North Pole”. When the families disembark from the plane, they enter the “North Pole” and experience Christmas.

Dale Sorensen Real Estate hosts lunch for Golf Carts of Vero Beach following fire

 

VERO BEACH FL/ SEPTEMBER 2018 – Sales agents and staff at the Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE) downtown Vero Beach office recently hosted a lunch for the employees of Golf Carts of Vero Beach following a devastating fire at the golf cart business. The fire happened in early September and destroyed nearly 100 golf carts in the building. Fourteen employees were left without a paycheck due to the event. The employees were invited to lunch, which was provided by Nino’s Pizza.

“We just wanted to reach out a helping hand to a community partner,” said Jim Goldsmith, Managing Broker of DSRE’s downtown office. “We wanted to let them know we support them and that if there’s anything we, a local business can do, we’re here for them. Dale Sorensen Real Estate is community minded, we honestly live that philosophy.”
“This is just another example of how caring and charitable the staff and employees of DSRE are,’ said Dale Sorensen, Jr., DSRE Managing Partner. “Both Golf Carts of Vero Beach and Nino’s are great community businesses and partners. They both support the Vero Beach Easter Parade that DSRE hosts. We realize they’re here when we need them, so we want them to know we’re here for them too.”
Golf Carts of Vero Beach owner Tim Burklew sent a message to DSRE and Nino’s Pizza. “To Dale Sorensen Realty and Nino’s Pizza – Thank you for feeding our entire staff lunch today! Many of you have never realized how many employees were behind the scene at golf carts of Vero Beach! You guys are a blessing thank you!”
Because insurance will not cover loss of pay for the employees, a Go Fund Me page has been created to help raise money for them. As of September 12th, $16,731 of the $25,000 goal has been raised. To donate, go to https://www.gofundme.com/62ckmk-golf-carts-of-vero-beach

Dale Sorensen Real Estate has been the recipient of numerous awards due, in large part, to their philanthropy. For more information, contact Dale Sorensen, Jr. at 772-231-4712 or email him at jdsjr@sorensenrealestate.com.
