A great big thanks to all of you that participated in our October 16th Breast Cancer Fund Raiser event. We have kept the donation account open at the Bank of Colorado, and the generosity of the community has been overwhelming. The bank's vice president, along with friends, had been growing their hair long to donate to Locks of Love, wigs for woman with cancer. Today, October 30th, in the lobby of the main branch of Bank of Colorado at 3:00 PM their heads were shaved! Also present was a rep from the St Mary's Wilma B Bacon Mammography Department to receive the $11,009 check from all the funds we raised. A great big rewarding feeling as we close out this 2009 October Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!!
Thank you again, event coordinator,
Alyssa Roberts, Re/Max 4000

Even struggling real estate agents still do good for others!! And the Grand Junction community participation is still high even when things are rough for so many. It is always more blessed to give than to receive! This Wednesday I, with my fellow Re/Max agents, stood out on the corner in the cold, to raise groceries for the Grand Junction Food Bank. At the end of the day we had filled 21 shopping carts to the brim with non-perishable items!! The attendant at the Food Bank said this was the largest single-donation they had ever seen raised in one day! Thank you all who participated and contributed. I am proud to be a Re/Max agent!
