Wednesday, May 16th, 2018
The Atlanta Commercial Board of REALTORS premier charity fundraising event of the year, the Annual Spring Fling, was held May 10, at City Winery at Ponce City Market. Over 400 REALTORS and guests came together and raised over $55,000 for two local charities. The event featured great food, raffle prizes and networking opportunities with Atlanta’s commercial real estate leaders and professionals.
The proceeds from the event will be donated to the ACBR’s two selected 2018 charities: Devereux GA, a non-profit organization that provides important direct care services to children, adolescents and young adults struggling with emotional and behavioral health challenges, and Wellspring Living, a non-profit organization that serves survivors of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation.

The Community Service Committee Chair Pat Murphy notes that “Devereux Georgia and Wellspring Living are two organizations that have been making a tremendous difference in Atlanta, and ACBR has been thrilled to be able to partner with them for this fundraiser. Every year, our members look forward to this event that features a great venue and connections with life-changing organizations.”
The Atlanta Commercial Board of REALTORS’ Board President, Kay Younglove, reacted to the event by saying “We are so fortunate to be a part of the Commercial Real Estate industry here in Atlanta, a city where our industry continues to thrive, allowing us to give back in an impactful way to improve the quality of life of some of our citizens in need. It’s so exciting to see the culmination of the hard work of our Community Services Chair Pat Murphy, Vice-Chair Ryan Hoyt, and their committee as we make meaningful contributions to two absolutely amazing nonprofits and see the impact that they make on this Atlanta community that we love and are so privileged to serve.”
