Local realty team becomes SBCO supporter
Beth Fedor and Lynn Dent of the Make Your Move Team at Realty Executives offer their real estate clients the opportunity to benefit a number of local charities, including SBCO, by donating ten percent of the realtors’ earnings. “Our goal has always been to give back to local non-profits where the money would have the greatest impact upon our community,” said Beth, “but the way it has translated to the active volunteerism of our clients has been an unexpected happy benefit.”
Based on SBCO’s mission of providing opportunities for local children to succeed, recent Catalina home buyers Jason and Jackie Horst chose SBCO as the recipient of the realty’s donation. After learning more about SBCO’s efforts from SBCO Board President Steve Groth, Jackie Horst offered to volunteer with Kids’ Closet when operations for the 2018-19 school year begin.
Realtor Beth Fedor is serving SBCO through monthly articles highlighting the 2017 SBCO Home Tour. She and Lynn are looking forward to volunteering for Teen Closet and participating as sponsors of the 2018 Walkathon on Saturday, October 27.

Homes and volunteers sought for 2019 SBCO Home Tour
The upcoming annual SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) home tour, like last year, will focus on remodeled homes. The 2018 tour was so well received, events committee members decided to offer SaddleBrooke residents another opportunity to see how their neighbors have adapted their homes for open-concept living, improved storage or additional space to accommodate their hobbies or guests.
This fundraising event will be held on Sunday, April 7 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Funds raised through the tour help SBCO provide food, clothing and educational opportunities for children in local communities. Tour tickets will only be sold to SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch residents.
The SBCO events committee is currently seeking homeowners who would like to have their homes showcased in the 2019 tour, along with volunteers who can serve as docents in the tour homes. If you would like to participate in this upcoming event, please send an email to Trish Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
