For the past 18 years, Allen Tate agents, employees and guests have gathered each FUNday and “paid to play” to raise money for local public education organizations. This year, four separate regional FUNday events took place through the company’s footprint in North and South Carolina. To date, FUNday has raised more than $1.52 million for public education across the Carolinas.
More than 200 people attended the Upstate event, An Enchanted Evening, held November 3 at the Hyatt in Greenville. The festivities included a silent and live auction, wine pull, reception and dancing. Special drawings included the Great Restaurant Giveaway ($1,500 in gift cards), drawing for an aquamarine and diamond ring, and a 50/50 raffle.
