The Greater Bergen Association of REALTORS® Young Professionals Network (YPN) hosted their first event for the 2019 calendar year at the Bowlero Alley and Sports Bar in Fairlawn, NJ. Over 100 members were in attendance at the event where they enjoyed an evening of networking and bowling while also raising money for the CTC Academy.
CTC Academy is a non-profit organization that provides educational and therapeutic services for students with a diverse array of developmental disabilities through their collaborative educational program and support services for students and families. Their mission is to enhance the lives of children and young adults with special needs, and their families, by providing an enriched educational, therapeutic and supportive environment.
With their efforts, YPN was able to raise over $2,000.00 in donations. “We are so happy to have been able to raise money for this organization,” stated Carlos Salazar, YPN Co-Chair. “Not only were we able to raise funds, but we also brought about awareness to fellow REALTOR® colleagues and industry professionals about the academy, and more importantly the positive impact it has on the local community.”
The Bergen County YPN Committee is comprised of like minded driven individuals who are new to the industry and are looking to expand through educational, networking and charitable events. Jorge Ledesma, CEO of the Greater Bergen Association of REALTORS® said “It is commendable to see our YPN and new incoming REALTORS® come together to organize and support this local organization which provides special support to families and children in our community”.
