Auctioning Of Desserts Instead Of Homes Raises $3,845 For Mt. Juliet Charities
An auction was recently held at Crye-Leike, REALTORS Mt. Juliet sales office but the Agents were not selling property.
Instead of making competitive offers on a home, bidders were hoping to place the winning bid on one of the many delicious desserts up for auction.
Crye-Leike Agents in Mt. Juliet put business on hold Tuesday morning September 22, 2009 to host the office’s Sixth Annual Martin Cummings Sweet Tooth Auction. Agents host the auction every September during the company’s United Way Campaign to raise money for local charities supported by United Way of Wilson County.
This year’s Sweet Tooth Auction brought in $3,845 to benefit the Mt Juliet Help Center and the Mt. Juliet Senior Center. A hearty breakfast was served for everyone who attended to enjoy followed by the auctioning of many homemade cakes, cookies, pies and other sweet treats.
“Thanks to all the support from Kathy Tomlinson from Realty Title for the wonderful breakfast and thanks to the donations of auction items from local businesses, the public, agents from Crye-Leike offices and other Real Estate companies, and our auctioneers, the auction this year was a huge success!” said Crye-Leike Affiliate Broker Joann Pucciarelli. “A special thanks goes to our fabulous Mt. Juliet office because without all their support from baking, inviting others, bidding and being such a wonderful group of people this auction would not be possible.”
The Sweet Tooth Auction is named in memory of the late Martin Cummings who was the first Managing Broker of the Crye-Leike, REALTORS Mt. Juliet office.
“Martin always stressed to us to give back to the community and that is what our office has always tried to do,” said JoAnn. “We were very fortunate to have Martin’s wife Camilla Cummings to join us in the fun at the auction this year. I know Martin would be very proud of the way the auction turned out and thrilled on how successful it is every year.”
