Recently Sutton Group – Premier Realty in Ottawa showed its community that they have heart. During a live telethon for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, executive director Alana Abraham presented a cheque for $10,100 from her Sutton offices. Alana and her husband Donald Abraham, the owner/manager of the brokerage, were looking for a way to give back to their community and involve all of their 70 associates.
“We chose the University of Ottawa Heart Institute after listening to many stories from our associates about the centre saving their lives or those of their friends and family members,” says Alana.
Once they selected the charitable recipient, the Abrahams asked their sales reps if they would be willing to donate a portion of their commission from each transaction. At the end of the year, the total including a donation from Alana and Donald was $10,100.
