WHAT/WHO: Associa companies Community Management Corporation (CMC), Legum & Norman, Inc. (L&N) and Select Community Services (SCS) announce Monday, September 10, 2012 as its 5th Annual Vendor Fair benefitting Associa Cares, the philanthropic arm of Associa.
The Annual Vendor Fair features vendors and sponsors networking by “speed-dating” their way around The National Conference Centerin Leesburg, Virginia. The event has already raised $240,100, and expects to reach just under the $1 million mark when combined with money raised during all five years.
“We could not be more pleased. We anticipate 104 vendors to attend the 5th Annual Vendor Fair. Not only do they get an opportunity to meet with community managers, but they are a part of something bigger,” said CMC’s Director of Corporate Services Steve Philbin. “This is a tremendous opportunity for our vendors, sponsors and managers to network, while having fun and ultimately helping raise money for a great cause.”
Associa Cares relies on volunteers from national and local committees to help identify people in both Associa and non-Associa managed communities affected by tragedies. In the 2011 fiscal year, Associa Cares donated $36,000 to the Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland areas.
“Too often, communities across the United States experience a traumatic event or crisis, such as a natural disaster,” said Associa President and CEO John Carona. “When so much is lost, it’s hard for families to know what to do and where to begin. That is why we created Associa Cares – to help victims of natural or man-made disasters get back on their feet again.”
