September Event #1: Team Ridgeway & Coldwell Banker Booth  At World Rowing Championships!

The  World Rowing Championships showcase Sarasota as a destination for athletes and spectators from all over the world. This fall, Benderson Park serves as home to the event for the first time ever, and it's a remarkable opportunity for the Suncoast real estate market. 

Not only are we working the Coldwell Banker Booth, we'll be on the grounds as volunteers all twelve days. We'll be meeting and greeting the athletes and visitors from all over! Lillian's firs t job will be Sept 20th where she'll be greeting visitors as they arrive at SRQ airport. 

What does that mean to you?  We'll be marketing your properties, of course! Give us the opportunity to list your house or condo and we'll get it in the hands of hundreds of people.  We're not only looking to get Sarasota on the map; our objective is to get Heritage Oaks on top of the list and showcase the completely renovated golf course and community!   See belo w for more details on how YOU can get involved as well.

With nearly 2,000 athletes from over 60 different countries, over 2,000 volunteers will be needed to make the World Rowing Championships -- taking place right here at Nathan Benderson Park -- a success. Choose  from a variety of volunteer roles and shift times here. Some examples include language assistance, hospitality, transportation, and special events. Team Ridgeway will have a booth out there and will be out volunteering throughout the event. Connect with us to learn more or visit the WRC website to sign up!

When: September 23 - October 1
Where: Nathan Benderson Park

Town-to-town or state-to-state....we are all Americans. And when tragedy 
strikes, we can all to do our part to preserve the sense of community we share.  People helping people...

The rescue efforts and first re-sponders have been outstanding, going above and beyond the call of duty. America thanks them for their efforts.  Sadly, recovery will be a long, slow process. 

Friends, family, neighbors as well as complete strangers are coming from miles around to lend a hand. We pray for their safety as well as the victims of this tragedy. It's so up-lifting to see everyone coming together to support those who have lost everything.

Victims of Hurricane Harvey need our help, so where do your heartstrings get tugged? There's so many ways to help; from general relief to blood donations, shelter, food, or even helping out specific populations, such as the elderly, children, or animals.    Here's a LIST of how you can help:


Worried about getting scammed? It's true....a few of the cyber scum are exploiting this disaster. Giving is good, but it's important to donate to a legitimate charity with experience in helping victims quickly. Learn more about how to make the right decision on where to send your good will.
