A Cranston real estate agent had an idea to throw a typical summer block party. And then he thought about making it a disco-themed gathering.
Why should you care?
The party raised $4,154 for Hasbro Children's Hospital as more than 150 neighbors and friends got together for the retro fundraiser.
The agent, Mark DeCosta , said the initial goal was to raise $2,500, so he was pleased with the result.
“Our initial goal was to raise $2,500 for Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and I’m so pleased that we exceeded our original expectations,” said Mike DeCosta. “We all immensely enjoyed organizing and planning this event and we’ve already begun planning next year’s fundraiser which we’ve themed “Rockin’ Through the Ages” and will feature live bands.”
The money will benefit the Children's Miracle Network at the hospital, which provides treatment, comfort and hope to millions of sick children every year.
“Giving back to the community is incredibly important and it is through fundraisers, like the one Mark organized, and other donations our Agents make for every completed home sale they have that we are able to support deserving organizations such as the Children’s Miracle Network,” said Rob Scaralia, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX 1st Choice.
