Giving Back

With 2016 upon us, Realtors® of the Ocala/Marion County Association of REALTORS® look forward to continuing to give back to our community, such as partnering with the CEP and MCBIA for the upcoming annual Home, Garden & Lifestyle Expo, our annual Chair-ity event and other committee fundraiser/charity events throughout the year.

› Dale Barron, President

Ocala/Marion County Association of Realtors

The Ocala/Marion County Association of REALTORS® Community Awareness committee granted a total of $6,000 to Marion County teachers in 2015! Each year the committee accepts applications for teacher mini grants. Part of the decision process is determining which requests have the ability to impact the most students that year and in the future. On January 26, 2016, Darlene Yonce, association executive; Randy Alvord, past president and chair of community awareness; and John Celebre, committee member, attended the Marion County School Board meeting to present checks to teachers and their principals.

SAVE THE DATE! On April 30, 2016, OMCAR will once again be joining the Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP) and the Marion County Building Industry Association (MCBIA) to bring to you the 2016 Home, Garden & Lifestyle Expo at the College of Central Florida’s Ewers Center from 10am-3pm. Please look for more information about this event on our website, APR
