The Brunswick County Association of REALTORS®’ 2019 Bucks 4 Bikes fundraising drive collected more than $45,000, which will be utilized to provide bicycles and other gifts to Brunswick County children who are in need. This year’s fundraising effort outpaced the 2018 total by $10,000. BCAR collaborated with Brunswick Family Assistance on this year’s Bucks 4 Bikes campaign.
“Thanks to the tremendous efforts of this year’s Bucks 4 Bikes team and the generous support of our donors, approximately 500 Brunswick County children who might not otherwise receive a Christmas gift will get one this year,” said Cynthia Walsh, BCAR CEO, “A special thanks goes out to Bucks 4 Bikes co-chairs Rick Mazur and Jim Goodman, Stephanie Bowen of Brunswick Family Assistance, our community captains, our key volunteers, and everyone in Brunswick County who donated to this worthwhile effort.”
Key volunteers included George Zimmerman, Elaine Harris, Bahre Willis, Cameron Brand, Robert Talley, Darlene Dies, Dan Riley, Karla Squier, Cathy Camac and Joe Calla.
