As a teenager my Dad and I would visit elderly patients at nursing homes around
I came to appreciate my father’s sense of service to the community at an early age and I wish I devoted more time to it today.
Perhaps it was because of my history of making a difference in the lives of others, I was moved a few months ago when Channing, the Director of the Washington AIDS Partnership, presented to us. “Us” in this case was The Capital Tennis Association of which we’re a sponsor. Each year, the Association holds a tennis tournament in the fall and the proceeds are directed to a charitable organization. http://capclassic.org/Home_Page.html for more information.
Channing brought with him half a dozen young people who had just participated in the year long
It was a moving presentation and it quickly became clear that the year had changed these individual’s lives and they had impacted many others in a positive way.
The Capital Tennis Association decided to select Washington AIDS Partnership’s Americorps Program as the recipient of the charitable funds for 2008. See http://washingtonaidspartnership.org/Americorps.htm for more details.
This year the Association has committed to raising more then $20,000 to give to Washington AIDS Partnership, and I’m proud to announce that Brandon Green Companies, in partnership with David Kanstoroom of North American Title and Rob Riggins of Washington Home Mortgage is giving $10,000 to support the event.
I challenge the entire Brandon Green Companies family to raise $5,000. Please, if you can make a donation contact me and I’ll fill you in on the details. I’ll post an update blog later as to our progress thus far.
