Charity Events

Throughout the year REBNY hosts charitable events to support those in need both within the real estate industry and outside.  In addition to smaller raffles which acompany many of our commmittee and networking events there are four large events held annually that raise money for charities.


The Annual Golf & Tennis Outing, open to all REBNY Members supports a charity each year with it's 50/50 raffle. 

The REBNY Foundation hosts this annual industry social and sporting event during the week of the US Open. By playing in the tournament, members contribute toward a variety of excellent causes. Participants also sharpen their game skills at clinics with professional tennis players.

This important event has raised several hundred thousand dollars for charities including the Gift of Life Foundation, Centurion Foundation, Big Apple Circus community outreach program and others.

This annual awards and charitable event donates its proceeds through the REBNY Foundation to the REBNY Member in Need Fund. This Fund was established to provide grants to residential agents who have experienced unexpected illness or financial hardship.

The high-profile, fun evening includes the presentation of three awards (Sales, Henry Forster and Most Promising Rookie) to those who have shown creativity or ingenuity to make a successful deal, as well as integrity and service toward both community and private organizations.

As part of its ongoing commitment to improve the lives of the needy and make New York a better place to work and live, REBNY residential members conduct an annual summer donation drive. Held between June and August, this drive supports different needs of the community.

Collected items in the past have included shoes given to Dress for Success and Career Gear; eyeglasses donated to New Eyes for the needy; school supplies donated to Public School, CPII; and cell phones donated to Verizon Hopeline in partnership with the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence.
