Posted by: Cathy Eng in Community Involvement, News, Schools, WGV Events

Davidson Cares, the corporate giving program of Davidson Realty, has reached more than $20,000 in donations for local St. Johns County public schools! The foundation’s second year of operation has seen an outpouring of support in donations and time given by the sponsors, the community, Davidson Realtors and contributors. The foundation’s Title Sponsors include Bank of England, Mile Marker Brewing, St. Augustine Ear, Nose & Throat and La Fontana at the Residences.

Says Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson, “The support we’ve received this year has been fantastic through our fundraising events, online voting and sponsorships. For everyone who has been involved with Davidson Cares this year we can’t thank you enough.”

Davidson Cares grants go to Mill Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary, Wards Creek Elementary and Pacetti Bay Middle School. All four schools did a great job generating website votes for their submitted videos. Mill Creek came in first place with the most school-wide votes, so in addition to a $1,000 grant for their winning grant idea, they also received the biggest portion of the Davidson Cares’ money, $6,781!

Says Davidson Realty VP of Marketing Peyton Davidson, “Mill Creek’s commitment to Davidson Cares this year was really inspiring; they are such huge supporters of Davidson Cares’ events. They even had their students train to run the Davidson Cares’ 5k & Kid’s Fun Run in February.”

Wards Creek received $4,844 and Pacetti Bay received $3,875. All four schools received $1,000 grants and Pacetti Bay received an additional $500 for their anti-bullying campaign.

Peyton added, “We are really grateful for the support from the students, teachers, staff and parents at all four schools. Each school did a great job.”

Davidson Cares also thanks its $500 sponsors including Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Davidson Realty agent Mirtha Barzaga, Blackstone Grille, Design Extensions, Donna Mancini Staging & Redesign, Emerald Homes, Landmark Title, Law Offices of Curtis & Associates, Davidson Realty Agents Pauline and Woody Cake, Redfin Group, The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort, Riverside Homes, The Salameh Group and Spickelmier Insurance Agency.
