U.S. REO Partners brought it’s annual charity auction & client appreciation dinner back to Dallas, Texas this fall for a fundraising event that raised over $70,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year’s event attracted nearly 150 attendees to the exclusive member- and invitation-only event. This year’s event was once again held at Eddie V’s in Dallas to coincide with the start of the 2017 Five Star Conference and Expo.
During the event, retired Dallas Cowboy Ed “Too Tall” Jones was a featured guest, speaking briefly during the auction on the importance of leadership and charity. Jones also posed for photographs, signed autographs, and auctioned off several personalized, autographed footballs.
“We are so appreciative for U.S. REO Partners’ dedication to supporting the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Because of incredible supporters like U.S. REO Partners and events like their fundraising dinner, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation, “ commented Jayna Nance, the Dallas area’s Regional Events Specialist with ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“Giving through charitable donations has been a cornerstone of U.S. REO Partners since the organization’s founding in 2010. This dinner not only raises critical funds and awareness, but offers our members an opportunity to give generously and support the communities where we work and live,” said Troy Capell, Chairman of the U.S. REO Partners’ Board of Directors.
Funds raised through the dinner and auction event help ensure that no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. U.S. REO Partners plans to host it’s 2018 event once again in Dallas, Texas.
