All year long we raise money for the Coastal Foundation through raffles, our golf tournament held in October, and donations from our members. With over 1000 members in the Lower Shore, REALTORS® give back countless amounts of their time, money, and expertise to nonprofits. We are just honored to be able to participate in their hard work in this small way.”
