On July 21, Buffalo Niagara Association of REALTORS (BNAR) President Joe Rivellino and Board Member Rebecca VanDorn presented a check for six thousand five hundred ($6,500) dollars each to Mercy Flight Central and Mercy Flight Western New York. The money was raised at the REALTORS golf event and auction which was held in June at Terry Hills Golf Course and Banquet Facility in Batavia, New York.
Mercy Flight Central is an independent, non-profit organization of air medical professionals, devoted to integrity and compassion, providing critical care to the sick and injured. Mercy Flight WNY is an independent, not-for-profit provider of emergency air-medical transport and supporting services, ensuring rapid, safe and cost effective delivery of expert emergency response teams.
The BNAR/Genesee Valley has been involved with Mercy Flight Central for over sixteen years and most recently Mercy Flight Western New York because of their needs and the areas the Association serves. Spearheading the event/fundraiser was Rebecca VanDorn, BNAR Director and Genesee Valley Chapter President and Lynn Gleason, BNAR staff liaison. “We are committed to fundraising for both organizations. We had a chance to meet the pilot, nurses and staff who are available 24 hours a day and they have saved the lives of a few of our members’”, stated Rebecca Van Dorn. “REALTORS are committed not only to their real estate profession but also want to make a difference and give back in their communities”, stated Joe Rivellino, President of BNAR.
