On September 8, 2018, several members from Harcourts USA had a major impact on the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada’s 25th annual Luau charity auction event. 

The Luau raised 18% of the organization's $2 million annual operating budget through ticket sales, sponsorships, and live and silent auction item sales.  Over 800 people attended, and proceeds go towards providing children throughout western Nevada a safe, structured, and positive environment for after school activities.

On the night, Harcourts Pacific Regional Director, Rob Forde, facilitated the bidding for the entire live auction, lasting over 2 hours in length with 25 major auction items. 

“Whenever we have an opportunity to give back we embrace it with open arms,” states Harcourts Pacific Regional Director, Rob Forde.  

“Events like this, when we are able to give our expertise for a great cause and raise much needed funds is something we are extremely proud to be able to do.”

Harcourts NV1 office nearby in Reno became a corporate sponsor for the event and also donated items to the auction including a “free listing up to $750,000 sales price” from their agents in the Fink Group.  On top of that, Harcourts NV1 donated $2,500 during the live auction for Stand Up for Kids, where all donations go back to operation costs for BGCWN.

“As a father of 2 and the Broker of an office with agents who have kids, we were proud to step up and contribute to this event in any way that we could,” says Broker at Harcourts NV1, Ryan Borden. 

“So many of our clients are looking to provide homes for not just themselves but for their families as well, and working with the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada only further confirms that what we do is for the people who make this community so special,” continues Borden.

BGCWN shares appreciation to all of Harcourts USA for their generosity and time spent assisting in the event.  BGCWN serves more than 2,600 children in their Clubhouse Kids program, and an additional 4,900 children through their community outreach programs, and all money raised goes towards creating a better experience for the kids in their communities.
