Clarksville, TN – On May 3rd, 2014, the Clarksville Association of Realtors will be hosting the 7th Annual Project F.U.E.L. (Full of Emmaus Love) Block Party and Fundraiser, a community event that is coordinated each year by the Charity Relations Committee with the assistance of the realtor and affiliate members of the Clarksville Association of Realtors.
The proceeds from the event benefit the F.U.E.L Program which helps to ensure that food is provided for hungry school children on the weekends.Some of the highlights of the Block Party this year will include live performances by step teams and a choir, demonstrations from a K-9 Team, appearances from the Clarksville Police Department and Clarksville Fire Rescue, a Kids Zone that includes bouncy houses and water games, pet adoptions will be available, a silent auction, many vendors will be set up and much more.
Lunch tickets can be purchased for $5.00 at the Clarksville Association of Realtors office and will include a hamburger and hot dog lunch with all the fixings. Donations will also be accepted at the event.
Project F.U.E.L. is a food subsidization program designed to feed Clarksville-Montgomery County school children through the weekend whose only food source may be the meals they are receiving at school. Individually wrapped snack items are made available to the qualifying students each Friday.
The program is funded solely through donations and local fundraising efforts and operated through local churches and civic organizations.
“As Realtors, we enjoy working to give back to a community that provides so much for us,” said Katie Griffin, Charity Relations Committee Chair. She went on to add that for the cost of one ticket, we can feed a child for an entire weekend and that the need is real here in Montgomery County. To date, the Clarksville Association of Realtors has raised over $46,000 for the F.U.E.L. Program.
