REALTORS® do more than just list and sell real estate. REALTOR® members of the Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® feel strongly about community involvement.
GGAR works in conjunction with the Greenville County public school system to provide Christmas gifts to needy children through the “Care and Share” program.
The GGAR Community Service Committee hosts an annual fundraiser, Lobs, Links and Lanes. This event consists of a Captains Choice Golf Tournament, Tennis Round Robin, Bowling Tournament and a BBQ Dinner/Party. Proceeds from the “Lobs, Links & Lanes” event which is now in its 19th year, will benefit two local charities: The Frazee Dream Center and Rebuild Upstate. The Frazee Dream Center is a free preschool, after school and summer program for under resourced children in Greenville, South Carolina. Unlike organizations that focus on new home construction, Rebuild Upstate exclusively repairs and improves existing homes. It's about more than just laying boards and hammering nails - it's about restoring the safety and dignity of our neighbors in need.
Revitalization Awards are presented annually to members of the community who have “revitalized” a property by investing a substantial amount of time and money in a property that acted as a catalyst to improve the community.
GGAR members also actively participate in legislative advocacy. GGAR has on staff a full-time Governmental Affairs Director to keep members informed on local issues and to represent members at local meetings. Members meet with legislators at functions such as Conferences, Legislative Breakfasts, Receptions, and the annual GGAR RPAC fundraiser to discuss issues that affect REALTORS® as well as consumers.
