Recently, Bennion Deville Homes agents and staff from across the Coachella Valley helped the Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS (PSRAR) raise money for critical organizations in the local community at the Harvest Auction event. The Harvest Auction, held each year the day before Thanksgiving, gives all proceeds to the Desert Escrow Scholarship fund, Sanctuary House, and the Boys & Girls Club valley wide. This year Harvest Auction raised over $11,000 based on an auction-style system, with everything from pies to festive displays up for sale to the highest bidder.
Bennion Deville Homes Managing Brokers Denise Anderson and David Cantwell have a time-honored tradition of making David’s late mom’s famed pecan and cranberry pie recipe every year. Denise and David invited fellow Bennion Deville Managing Broker Tish Herwig to join the team as the pastry chef creating beautiful homemade crusts for this year’s batch of baked goodies. The pies the trio cooked up auctioned at $110 each, with one of them being purchased by Palm Springs’ very own Mayor Robert Moon.
Bennion Deville Homes agent Tanner Voskamp from the Palm Springs South office sold a majority of the $200 gift basket raffle tickets, priced at $25 each. Bennion Deville Homes General Manager Chris Anderson was one lucky winner of a super basket, valued at over $400 in goodies. Bennion Deville agent Nancy Stienfeldt from the Palm Springs South office, coordinated and created all of the spectacular baskets donated by Bennion Deville Homes, winning “Most Creative.” The auctioneer for the event was Orange Coast Title’s Darlene Daniello.
“We are proud of the commitment our agents and staff put in to Harvest Auction each year,” adds Bob Deville, Co-Founder of Bennion Deville Homes. “This a fun event benefitting exceptional causes and we look forward to participating each year. Being able to purchase a last-minute dessert item for Thanksgiving is an added bonus.”Next Post Previous Post
