“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.”. ~George Bernard Shaw
As we come upon the holiday season and the start of a new year, we here at Berger Commercial Realty Corp. are taking the time to reflect upon our community involvement.
While we always place continuing education and civic experience in the real estate industry as a top priority, we recognize that our active participation in charitable organizations helps build South Florida’s strong-knit community. Our commitment to community involvement is exemplified by many of our team members:
- Tammy Berger has been involved with the Charity Guild of Fort Lauderdale since 2005 and will serve on the organization’s Executive Board through 2011. The Charity Guild raises funds to provide health care and social services for medically fragile, disadvantaged and emotionally challenged children in Broward County through the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center and Kids in Distress.
- Vice President Judy Dolan is the recording secretary of the Board of Directors for Advocates for Children and Families, a non-profit adoption agency in North Miami Beach.
- Senior Vice President Steve Hyatt is a member of the Executive Board for the Jack and Jill Children’s Center in Fort Lauderdale, a Trustee of the First Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, and Assistant Scoutmaster for Boy Scouts of America, Troop 190.
- Senior Vice President St.George Guardabassi is a member of the Fort Lauderdale Downtown Rotary Club and the Broward Alliance. He is Chairmen of the New River Raft Race as well as a past board member, and a member of the organization’s special projects and speakers committees. St. George is also a member of the Marine Advisory Board to the City of Fort Lauderdale, a group that advises the City Commission on all marine related matters, and a member of the Rio Vista Civic Association. He volunteers for the annual Broward County waterways cleanup, and serves on the Board of Directors for the 100 Club, an organization that donates money to the families of police, firefighters and military killed or injured in the line of duty.
As we reflect upon the past year and our community experiences, we set our sights high for 2011– renewing our commitment to charitable involvement and strengthening the ties that bind us together.
