National group raises funds during annual charity dinner, auction
Oct. 14, 2014 – US REO Partners, a national REO and default resolution professional association, raised more than $90,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during its annual charity dinner and auction at the Five Star Conference in Dallas. This year, basketball legend and NBA Slam Dunk champion Anthony Jerome “Spud” Webb, joined the group and autographed two basketballs to the highest bidders.
“We were very pleased at the level of generosity our membership and other industry professionals showed during this event,” said Michael Weaster, founding member of US REO Partners. “We are honored that Spud Webb joined us this year to provide much-needed attention to such a worthy cause. This event gives us the opportunity to give back to the community in a big way while having some fun at the same time. Giving through charitable donations has been a cornerstone of US REO Partners since it started in 2010.”
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s mission is to advance cures and efforts of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay, which is in line with founder Danny Thomas’ vision.
“St. Jude was honored to be chosen as the beneficiary of the US REO Partners Dinner this year,” said Bonne McCalmont Whittaker, liaison of regional events with St. Jude. “The evening was a great success raising more than $90,000 for the kids of St. Jude! Because of events like this, St. Jude is able to continue leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.”
