CAAR Member Bob Hughes Honored with Third Quarter Good Neighbor Award
The Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS® (CAAR) has announced that Bob Hughes of Nest Realty Group is the third quarter Good Neighbor Award recipient. The Good Neighbor Award program highlights local REALTORS® who dedicate significant time and interest to projects that make a lasting impact on our communities.
Bob was nominated by Millie Winstead, Director of Development at the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, and friend Michael Guthrie, for his dedication and fundraising efforts for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
Since volunteering with the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, Bob has brought great liveliness and support to the organization and their main fundraising event, Shop to Stop Hunger.
In 2014, he helped the event raise 22,759 meals to feed hungry families from sponsorships, voluntary monetary donations, and food contributions. In 2015, he surpassed the event target again and was able to achieve 41,842 meals.
“The energy and enthusiasm Bob brought to the Food Bank’s Shop to Stop Hunger event was unmatched. He raised the bar when it came to promotion and getting others involved in the spectacle of it all. He made a fun event that much more so!” said Millie Winstead.
A $250 donation was made to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank in Bob’s name, which is equivalent to 1000 meals.
The next Blue Ridge Area Food Bank – Shop to Stop Hunger event will take place on Thurs., Dec. 8th from 10 – 11 a.m. at Kroger – Barracks Road. CAAR members Michael Guthrie and Sasha Farmer will be among this year’s shoppers. Visit www.brafb.org to learn more.
