Fonville Morisey Holds Triangle Komen Race for the Cure “Rally Day”

by Lisa Sullivan, Digital Media Marketing Director

For the past six years, Fonville Morisey has steadfastly raised funds and awareness for Breast Cancer research and a cure through our participation in the Triangle Affiliate of the Susan. G. Komen Race for the Cure. Our offices compete against each other in raising money for the cause as we as a collective team participate on Race Day as well. This year, we did something a little different to keep the momentum going…and momentum we got!

On Tuesday, May 20th we hosted a Komen Race “Rally Day. Offices that participated decorated, held office fundraisers, and had a short presentation by their Team Captains and/or Management Teams. Many thanks to the following Offices for their participation -

Whether bake sales or silent auctions, these offices collectively raised OVER $5200 to add to our overall Fonville Morisey Team goal!

Many offices have also held separate fundraisers throughout the last couple of months as well. In fact, our Fonville Morisey Preston office hosted a “Pinko de Mayo” event on Cinco de Mayo.

Breast Cancer has affected many members of our Fonville Morisey family and our loved ones. This is THE major fundraiser we host every year, and our participation levels on Race Day are typically in the hundreds bringing our company together for one common cause.

In the Triangle – Don’t Forget Saturday May 10th 2014 is Stamp Out Hunger Day

by Lisa Sullivan, Digital Media Marketing Director

Let’s fill these shelves!

Food Bank CENC FMRealty

Fonville Morisey Sales Associates work with thousands of Triangle families each year on either finding their perfect home or selling the one they currently have throughout Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding communities. Many of these families might already be facing hardships. We know circumstances can change just like that and as a result some will in the future too, unfortunately. This is why we have partnered with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina on their Social Media Ambassador team. Whatever we can do to help them spread the word about all the GREAT things they are doing for our community, we’re going to.

This Saturday, May 10th is the one day when the National Association of Letter Carriers also assists in fighting hunger through their annual program -

Stamp Out Hunger

All we as residents are tasked with doing is placing one bag (or more) of donations at our mailboxes and our Letter Carriers will pick them up for us. It’s an easy way to give back to the community by helping to fight…or Stamp Out Hunger.

The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina has a specific list of Most Needed Items. They’ve broken it down by Infants, Kids, Seniors and in general terms. Grab a few, fill a grocery bag, and leave it out for your Letter Carrier to pick up. It’s that easy!

To learn more about the program, visit the Food Bank of CENC Hunger Matters blog post describing all of the behind the scenes action of what it takes to put this together each year.

The National Association of Letter Carriers also has this 60-second commercial describing the event as well -

Fonville Morisey believes that together we can end hunger in our Triangle communities. Help us Stamp Out Hunger this weekend!

Thank you.

 

 

 

 

Fonville Morisey Falls Office Holds Unique Fundraiser for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

The following contribution is by Linda Romano, VP/Sales Associate of our Fonville Morisey Falls sales office in Raleigh. It is the first installment of their April “feature” month series. Thanks for sharing, Linda!

Most all of us know someone or know of someone who has fallen victim to breast cancer. The fortunate survivors have all benefited from cancer research and now there is a 90% survival rate for women who detected their breast cancer at an early stage.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has invested over 2.2 billion dollars in breast cancer education and research. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the net income from each race stays within the host community to fund local programs.

Above and Beyond Raleigh FMRealtyAbove and Beyond2 Raleigh FMRealty

Fonville Morisey is once again proud to be a sponsor of our local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This year’s company goal is to raise over $20,000. Each office is participating in the fundraising project. The Falls office is raffling off a hot air balloon ride, donated by fellow associate, Tom Tomasetti.

In addition to his real estate career, Tom owns Above and Beyond Hot Air Balloon. His love for ballooning occurred in 1983 and has never waned. The perspective that is enjoyed as you peacefully move through the air in an open environment can only be experienced in a hot air balloon. Tom is going ‘above and beyond’ this year with his gracious donation. Thank you Tom!

Raffle tickets are being sold for $10 a piece.

For more information please contact our team captain, Kelli McGuire or Kathy Hoffmann at the Fonville Morisey Falls office, 919-872-4450.

With your help, together we can #KickCancer!

Fonville Morisey in the Community: The Food Bank of CENC Durham Branch is MOVING!

by Lisa Sullivan, Digital Media Marketing Director

Food Bank CENC Durham Logo FMRealtyThe Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 34 counties in total, including Wake, Durham, and Orange where each of our sales offices are all located. Translation – that means it serves MANY of the families that our agents may also serve at some point in the home buying and selling process as well. This is why we are proud Social Media Ambassadors for the organization because just as they believe no one should go hungry, we do too.

Recently, the Food Bank of CENC announced they are relocating their Durham branch to a whole new (and bigger!) facility. This is exciting news! For fifteen years, the Food Bank of CENC has served Durham and its surrounding communities from the same location, serving more than 50 million nutritious meals through this branch -

“And yet nearly 100,000 of our neighbors in this region live in poverty and remain at risk of hunger every day, up 83% from the day we opened our doors in 1999. To better meet this growing need, we’ve secured a new facility that will allow us to increase our distribution of food by 60%!” ~ Food Bank CENC Durham Moving Party Announcement

Moving from one location to another is also something we’re familiar with (we just moved a whole sales office to Wake Forest!). It’s not an easy task as it takes a coordinated effort amongst operations, marketing and public relations (they have to let everyone know where they’re moving to, right?), and volunteers. It also takes financial resources. The Food Bank has set up a special donation category for this very fete. You can assist them financially or in person as they prepare for this big undertaking. Just check out their Durham Branch Virtual Moving Party page on their website to learn more.

We’re thrilled for the Food Bank’s Durham Branch! Throughout the year as a company and individually we collect some of their much needed donations to help the families and partner agencies they serve. We know this Durham location will make it so much easier for the organization to assist those in Durham, Chatham, Granville, Orange, Person and Vance counties.

CONGRATULATIONS Food Bank of CENC Durham Branch. Welcome to your new neighborhood!

Fonville Morisey ITB Recommends You Check Out the SPCA of Wake County Santa Paws 5K

The following contribution is a collective from our Fonville Morisey Inside the Beltline Office.

As advocates for the SPCA of Wake County and participants in the yearly “Barks & Recreation” event that takes place each September, we wanted be sure everyone knows about an upcoming FUN family event this weekend – The SPCA of Wake County’s Santa Paws 5K!

Barks and Recreation 1 FMRealty

This is no ordinary 5K. In fact, the SPCA of Wake County touts it as “the ONLY dog-friendly 5K run in the triangle.”

Grab your pooch and compete in the Timed 5K Competitor race (but as of this writing, only 2 slots were left!) or perhaps take part as a Recreational Runner with dog instead. If you don’t have a beloved pooch to share the event with, not to worry. All runners (competitive or recreational) are welcomed! When your run in completed, you can even get a picture taken with their celebrity Santa and this year that’s none other than, Gerald Owens of WRAL TV!

The Fonville Morisey Inside the Beltline office agents and staff works hard at assisting our buyers and sellers throughout Raleigh and Wake County, many of which have a family pet to call their own (and some that may even want one!). We enjoy helping our local SPCA whenever we can. In fact, Sales Associate Mary Young had this to say about Barks & Recreation in September:

“As a volunteer for Barks & Recreation over the last two years, I’ve seen first hand how we in the Triangle love our four-legged friends. There were so many cute dogs and as a real estate office that serves our mid-town Raleigh clients, it was also great to see so many of our agents volunteer at the event in September too. Even my daughter joined me for some mother-daughter bonding time as we served. I love supporting the SPCA and look forward to next year’s Barks & Recreation event. I wish the SPCA much success in their Santa Paws 5K fundraiser.”

Here are a couple of our images from September’s event:

We can only imagine the fun-filled scene of Sunday’s event spreading holiday cheer for our pets in need! Stay tuned to the SPCA of Wake County’s Facebook Page for the images they share.

Good luck to all the competitive runners and their pooches! Best wishes to all humans and their four-legged friends for a FANTASTIC day too.

Fighting Hunger Locally With Scotty McCreery – Lowes Foods “Friends Feeding Friends”

The following contribution is by Lisa Sullivan.

Scotty McCreery Lowes Friends Feeding Friends Copyright Fonville Moriey via Lisa SullivanCombine a holiday meals campaign with a country music super star (that so happens to be a local boy) and you have a successful kick off! That’s exactly what took place at the Lowes Foods in Garner on Tuesday afternoon as the North Carolina-based grocery store chain kicked off their annual “Friends Feeding Friends” campaign. There were several invited guests to honor the event, including a local cub scout troop and Garner Mayor Ronnie Williams, but no other guest got a reception like Garner’s own, Scotty McCreery, Season 10 Winner of American Idol.

If you don’t already know, this particular Lowes Foods store also happened to be the one where Scotty spent many a part-time shift before his shot at stardom on the #1 talent show. He was on hand to join the cub scout troop in attendance with cutting the ribbon to get the campaign started across the Lowes Foods chain of stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. Afterwards, he graciously signed autographs and took pictures with fans in attendance too.

The Friends Feeding Friends campaign runs through December 31st. Each Lowes Food store collects bags of canned goods (or you can make a monetary donation) with all proceeds going to the local food bank associated with the store location.

As Fonville Morisey is a Social Media Ambassador for our Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, we were invited to be a part of this kick off so that we could assist in raising awareness for it and how it helps our Food Bank. On hand from Fonville Morisey was our Vandora Sales Office in Garner, VP and Sales Manager, Leah Cooke as well as Digital Media Marketing Director, Lisa Sullivan. Leah even assisted the cub scout troop with the loading of various grocery carts chock full of food donated by the good folks at General Mills!

Leah Cooke Cub Scouts Friends Feeding Friends Lowes Copyright Fonville Morisey

The Friends Feeding Friends campaign helps families in OUR local Triangle community. As this time of year is a cause of celebration, for some of our families it also presents a hardship as often the decision to feed or to pay the mortgage is a challenging one. While we at Fonville Morisey assist our home buyers and sellers with the purchase or sale of their homes, we also believe in helping those in our community who are less fortunate. This campaign is one way in which we can do so.

For more information about Friends Feeding Friends and how you can help, visit the Lowes Foods official website. Together we CAN fight hunger in our communities!

Fighting Hunger in the Triangle During Hunger Action Month

While we spend our days (and sometimes our nights) assisting families in the Triangle with finding their new homes or selling their current ones, we also take great pride in being a Social Media Ambassador for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina as we do what we can to raise awareness about their efforts, and this month is no different.

September is Hunger Action Month for food banks across the country, a month dedicated to building awareness and raising funds for the hungry in our communities. The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina has a plethora of events scheduled this month with probably its largest effort a 24-Hour Telethon scheduled for September 13th & 14th. From the Food Bank website -

After a wildly successful year in 2012, the Food Bank and Gregory Ng of Freezerburns are coming together once again to hold the 24-Hour Telethon 2013 as a part of the national Hunger Action Month. Our goal this year? $50,000!

The 24-Hour Telethon 2013 will begin streaming LIVE on our website from our Raleigh Warehouse at noon on Friday, September 13 and continue through noon on Saturday, September 14. The event will be hosted by Gregory to raise awareness, funds and food as part of Hunger Action Month.

The telethon will be packed with entertaining activities, events and enlightening interviews. We’ll have mascots, clowns, live music and even a dunk tank to encourage call-in donations!

 It’s easy to tune in! Go to www.foodbank24.org starting on September 13 at noon!

The organization has been planning for months. Some highlights of FUN events to checkout throughout the Telethon include -

  • A Food Truck Rodeo from 12-2 on Friday the 13th. Don’t bring your lunch that day. Head on down to the Raleigh warehouse of the Food Bank and purchase from any of the participating Food Trucks. Partial proceeds will go towards the Telethon goal.
  • From 6pm-8pm on Friday the 13th there’s the annual Social Media Mixer that will include delicious treats from area vendors, TONS of raffle prizes (last year, a Carolina Hurricanes autographed hockey stick was one of them! There might be another one this year too!), and it’s fun for the whole family. Again, proceeds from the sales of prize tickets will go toward the goal. Register to attend the Social Media Mixer today!
  • From 12am-2am on Saturday morning, there’s a “Midnight Madness” volunteer event complete with tasty treats for volunteers and a clown to entertain as well. If you’re interested, be sure to register to volunteer.
  • From 6am-8am on Saturday morning, there’s an “early bird breakfast” opportunity. Drop off donations for the Food Bank and get some breakfast too. Again, proceeds go towards the goal.

For a complete list of the activities and fun, check out the official schedule.

This is what the 24-Hour Telethon is all about -

 

When all is said and done, it’s about helping the Food Bank provide services for the 560,000 plus families they serve in their 34-county service area. Many of these families are just like your neighbors down the street. We at Fonville Morisey want to help these families in need and hope you will join the Food Bank’s efforts to raise $50K in this event. Donations are already being accepted, but we also invite you to join the fun beginning at Noon on the 13th too!

Let’s fight hunger in our Triangle community together. We can do it!

Making a Difference: Heather Petrovich of Fonville Morisey Inside the Beltline

The post is actually a continuation from a recent piece about our Fonville Morisey Inside the Beltline Sales Associates who give back to our Triangle communities. Originally posted in June, the Associates that were each featured actually had longer stories to tell so we decided we’d share those in upcoming posts.  Not only that, but we’re going to make this an on-going series. This is the first installment. Written by FM ITB’s Rachel Groome, read on to find out how Heather Petrovich of FM ITB makes a difference in her community.

Heather Petrovich FMRealtyNot only is Heather Petrovich a savvy and smart real estate agent helping her clients buy and sell homes inside Raleigh’s beltline (and sometimes beyond), she is a mom to five year-old twins. We know what you’re thinking – that about says it all doesn’t it? She’s a busy lady! The thing is she’s not so busy that she doesn’t understand what’s it’s like to hold a career outside of the home while being the best mother she can be. She understands what it means to be a stay-at-home mom, especially in times when you feel lonely and isolated so much so that she decided the best thing she could do was help others who feel the same way. Enter her best friend, Kate, and their podcast – Naptime Radio.

Naptime Radio is a community for parents that feel lonely and isolated, uniting them together with their common bond of motherhood (or fatherhood…yes, there are men that subscribe to the show), all the while being entertained and informed at the same time. Heather always dreamed of being on the radio, but she felt as if she lacked the skills and expertise to make a difference to those that would listen in when just a few years ago Kate approached her about creating one centered on motherhood and children with a humorous flair.  Now, every Monday for approximately an hour and twenty minutes Heather and her cadre of friends put on a lively podcast (offered on iTunes) that hopefully entertains and informs the moms & dads who listen in.

The witty and intelligent “cast of characters” on Naptime Radio include not only Kate and Heather, but also their friends Alli and Andrew (aka “The News Man”). The show is divided into four segments -

  • Chatter
  • Biz Buzz
  • Power Nap
  • The News

During “Chatter” the group discusses anything and everything about their daily lives. It may involve a discussion about a weekend family trip or a child sick with a virus. Topics vary based on the previous week’s experiences (and sometimes those of the day of recording too!).

In the “Biz Buzz” section, Alli highlights some particular business lingo or catch phrase that’s used today in the corporate world. It is a way to stay in touch with the corporate life that the stay-at-ome moms are missing, but also allows them to feel in touch with the rest of the working world.

It is important to note that Alli is single and doesn’t have any children. This is in stark contrast to Heather, Kate as well as the majority of the shows followers. She will often talk about her latest exotic trip to Africa or somewhere exciting. If she isn’t traveling then she is discussing her active weekend social life (the kind that moms tend to miss simply because life has changed for them). A lot of listeners (as well as Heather and Kate) get to live vicariously through Alli’s stories and tales of her adventures. This brings a different kind of realism to the relationships between moms and their friends, even single ones.

During “Power Nap”, the shows Hosts discuss pertinent parenting issues – anything from how to prevent and deal with sunburn to a four-part series on sexuality. The ladies take suggestions via email for this particular segment as they want their listeners to learn about topics that are important to them.  They take this segment seriously and as such, a great deal of research is done beforehand.

The show closes with “The News” segment where Andrew delivers the latest news making headlines around the world (not just in parenting, though he talks about that too). Although Andrew delivers the news, the ladies of Naptime Radio manage to create a lighthearted tone and environment with witty banter. During this segment they even provide a four-part quiz to keep listeners on their toes!

Thanks to a little help from her friends, Heather has turned a dream into a reality. Her idea that hosting a radio show would be fun and enjoyable has evolved into so much more. She has a strong bond with her listeners and is providing a much appreciated and much needed service to many women (and men) all over the world.

Heather never imagined that she would have listeners in 81 different countries! It is so rewarding for her to hear how her radio show got someone through a bad day or a bad time in their life not only from listeners around the world, but even from some right here in her own backyard. Recently, she ran into a listener at a Durham Bulls baseball game. Below is a quote from that listener. It’s a great example of how Heather touches the lives of others in a positive way -

“Heather – it was great to meet you the other day at the Bulls game! I have seen your photo on Facebook, but I would never have recognized you if the logo on your phone hadn’t caught my eye.

Anyway, I wanted to let you know that your show has been great for me over the last year as I have gone through a lot of changes. Last year at this time my husband was changing jobs (funny, it was going to be either NJ or NC) and we ended up in Greensboro in July of 2012. The move was fine, but the crazy part was going from working full-time to being a stay-at-home mom… in a town where I knew no one. It is not the greatest difficulty a woman has ever faced, but I have to say I think I might have gone slightly wacko there for a few weeks!

I just wanted you ladies to know that your show made me feel a little less alone. Moms often feel so isolated and being able to listen to your funny and inspiring banter can be a big help. However many “likes” and positive reviews you get, I would guess there are many, many more moms (and some dads) out there that are grateful for what you bring to them each week.

All is well now – the boys have friends, I have friends, the husband’s job is going well, and I am starting a part-time position in the next few weeks. Plus, I am following all Kate’s advice and as a result my children are perfect!

Thank you for your awesome show:)

Paula”

There you have it. Little did you know that our Heather Petrovich, Fonville Morisey Inside the Beltline Sales Associate, also has a successful podcast all about life as “mom” created for moms (and dads) to help them do their jobs as parents a little easier with some comic relief built in.

So, the next time you see Heather around town showing houses to families looking for residence in Five Points, Boylan Heights, Historic Oakwood, downtown, and all around Raleigh, be sure to thank her for all she does for her immediate community and the one she has formed online too.

If Heather has helped you in any way and you’d like to tell her, please leave a comment below. We’d love to hear about it.

If you’re a Fonville Morisey agent making a difference in your community, we’d love to learn more. Email us at lsullivan@fmrealty.com to tell us your story today!

 

 

 

Fonville Morisey Raises OVER $22K for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

FMRealty Komen Race for the Cure Team 2013

The Fonville Morisey Komen Race for the Cure Team 2013

This past Saturday, over 60 Fonville Morisey family members participated in the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure organized by the Susan G. Komen N.C. Triangle to the Coast affiliate of the global organization. Despite Tropical Storm Andrea pouring down on the region the day prior, the event packed in thousands in pink and white raising awareness and funds for research and a cure for Breast Cancer, the most common Cancer among women in the United States.

Seventy-five percent of the funds raised from the Triangle Race for the Cure go directly into education, research, and programs in our community. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised go to the global organization dedicated to research and finding a cure for Breast Cancer. Through a major company-wide fundraising effort and competition, Fonville Morisey raised $22,200 for this year’s Race! The office that raised the most per office member was our Fonville Morisey Inside the Beltline Office. In 2nd place for the same honor was our Fonville Morisey Lochmere Sales Office. The top fundraising individual was Jeanette Bell, also of Fonville Morisey Lochmere.

Amy Butler, VP and Sales Manager of FM ITB had this to say -

“Being a part of Komen Race for the Cure is a treasured tradition for our company, and we take a great deal of pride in the fact that we have surpassed our fundraising goal for the past two years. Not only do our agents and staff become involved in our effort, but so do our clients and friends. I predict that Fonville Morisey’s commitment and passion for this cause will only enhance in the years to come, and I look forward to being a part of it all!”

This year’s Team Captain for Fonville Morisey was Renee Smith, Assistant Manager of FM Lochmere and she had this to add -

“It was an honor and privilege to serve as this year’s Team Captain. Each of our Office Captains kept the momentum going throughout our fundraising and it was a pleasure to work with such a wonderful group! When all was said and done and monies were counted I was absolutely in awe, impressed, and just thrilled at what we were able to accomplish. It was a massive team effort and I can’t thank everyone enough – my Office Captains and all those who donated. Thank you. Thank you. Thank YOU!”

Congratulations to all the winners AND many thanks to all those who supported the effort and donated!

We recapped the day with a fun photo album on our Facebook Page. Take a look!
