K’s for a Cause
If you’ve attended a Morehead City Marlins game this season, you may have noticed an extra announcement at the beginning of each game! This summer, MCKRE has partnered up with the Marlins to carry out K’s for a Cause, where for every strikeout (K) the Marlins throw at a home game throughout the season, MCKRE donates $20 to a local charity, organization or program through MCKRE Gives.
Since their first game of the season, MCKRE Gives has donated $4,120. We asked this season’s pitchers which charities they wanted to support, and many answered with local athletic clubs and organizations. In the month of June, we were thrilled to donate to The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain, the Morehead City Makos Baseball Team, the Newport Vikings Pop Warner League and the Newport Little League Baseball Program. See a breakdown of June’s donations below:
Let’s end this season strong! There are only TWO games left in the regular season with playoffs beginning in August. Head out to Big Rock Stadium Friday, July 30th and Saturday July 31st at 7:00 to watch the Marlins take on the Holly Springs Salamanders and the Peninsula Pilots! We are so excited that this weekend’s strikeouts will go toward Backpack Friends — let’s go Marlins!
The Buddy Pelletier Surfing Foundation
We were thrilled to be a sponsor of the 20th Annual Buddy Pelletier Surfing Contest! Did you catch us at the Oceanana Pier this past weekend for the final year of The Buddy? Our Listing Specialist, Liz Waine, was out there catching waves and even advanced to Sunday’s competition!
We love the Buddy Pelletier Foundation’s mission of providing scholarships every year to local students in the surfing community and were proud to be a part of this wonderful event! Thank you to everyone involved in putting this friendly competition together — we had the best time!
Want to know more about MCKRE GIVES?
One of the things that makes MCKRE who we are is our commitment to our local community. We’ve found that our clients feel the same way. Each time we help a family buy or sell their home, we donate $100 in their name to the MCKRE Gives Fund to be distributed to local nonprofits. We couldn’t be more thrilled to both honor the families we serve and help those who make Carteret County a better place.
Since its inception in April 2020, MCKRE Gives has distributed $46,310 back into our local community, thanks to YOU!
