Shop ‘til you drop: Grand County Board of Realtors holds fifth annual Shop Off
The Grand County Board of Realtors brought together seven teams of local Realtors Wednesday morning for the Fifth Annual GCBOR Shop Off event at City Market in Granby.
The event helps to raise money and donations for the Mountain Family Center, a Granby-based non-profit dedicated to providing services to alleviate hunger and poverty.
“We have a lot of members who do so much for the community,” said Debra Brynoff, CEO of the Board of Realtors. “But to have them all turn out like this at once and be here to help the Mountain Family Center is just an awesome show of community support.”
Realtor offices from around the county were tasked with raising money for the event and designating a team of two to participate in the shop off. The teams, some dressed in costume, ran through the aisles of City Market collecting non-perishable food items, diapers, paper towels and loads of other essentials to help stock Mountain Family Center’s pantry.
Nearly $6,000 worth of items was donated during the event, surpassing last year’s mark of just under $5,500.
Prizes are awarded to the team that raises the most money for the event, the team that collects the most items in their cart and the team with the best costume. This year, Skylar Marshall and Carrie Flynn from Real Estate of Winter Park won the award for most money raised. Kerri Lambert and Laura Zietz from Remax Peak to Peak collected the most groceries, and Jordyn Crane and Jessie Landa from Mountain Family Center won best costume.
Mountain Movers of Fraser volunteered to transport all of the donations to Mountain Family Center.
“It’s just a really awesome and fun event that raises a bunch of money for the Mountain Family Center,” said Brynoff. “There’s more and more excitement surrounding it every year.”
