Kettle Moraine Council

February

The GMAR Kettle Moraine Council sponsored their first Mardi Gras Event in February 2016, which was a huge success. 75 people were in attendance at Jug's Hitching Post. Music and food were provided to those who attended. There was an affiliate sponsored Free Raffle adding to the fun for the evening.

The council will sponsor this event again next year and we look forward to seeing an even larger attendance.

"GMAR Kettle Moraine Council of Realtors recently donated $1000 to Family Promise. Family Promise is a non-profit organization that helps homeless families transition back into independent living. The GMAR Kettle Moraine Council was formed when the local Kettle Moraine Realtors® Association recently merged with the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors®. Local agents wanted to maintain a presence in the community through the Council. The Council will continue to offer education and social events for members, as well as continuing to contribute to local organizations like Family Promise.


GMAR does have a Youth Foundation that Washington County youth based organizations can now apply to for grant money. The grants cover youth ages 0-25. There are three categories: Education, Social Services, and The Arts. In 2014 close to $60,000 in grant money was given. Information for applying is on the GMAR website. The GMAR Kettle Moraine Council would like to encourage local groups and organizations to take advantage of the grant money that is now available. Kaye Erdman will be serving on the foundation board and other local agents are encouraged to also participate on the committees."
