June 11: March of Dimes to Hold 2015 Real Estate Award Reception and Pynes Putting Challenge
Sponsorships Still Available for New Jersey Chapter Fundraising Event, Honoring Bergen County Real Estate Executive

FAR HILLS, N.J., May 12, 2015 – The New Jersey Chapter of the March of Dimes will hold its 2015 Real Estate Reception and Pynes Putting Challenge on Thursday, June 11 at the United States Golf Association (USGA) headquarters in Far Hills, N.J. from 4:30 – 9:30 pm. This year’s event will honor Ed Russo, chief executive officer of Russo Development of Carlstadt, N.J.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available at various monetary levels, each of which carries a number of unique benefits. “The monies go toward valuable research to help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies, while offering valuable exposure to a company or product for its support,” says Gina Radice, executive director, North Jersey Division.

The Real Estate Award reception, which has been recognizing industry leaders since 2000, is a testimonial that brings together more than 200 professionals from New Jersey’s real estate community. The gathering provides a forum for the March of Dimes to raise awareness about its mission while honoring a leader from within the real estate industry for his or her contribution to maternal and infant health.

The 2015 Real Estate Award Reception is being co-chaired by Robert Martie, executive vice president of Colliers International NJ, LLC and Geoffrey L. Schubert, senior vice-president of CBRE. Erik Sletteland of Structure Tone, Inc. is serving as Pynes Putting Chair. The Pynes Putting Playoffs will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Pynes Putting Course, located behind the USGA Museum. Attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy the museum’s exhibits. The Real Estate Award Reception honoring Russo will immediately follow.
