RREAF CHARITIES

In 2023, the RREAF Charities Committee celebrated another successful year of impactful contributions to the local Dallas community. The committee voted to support several causes, including Salood, The ALS Association, The Alzheimer's Association, The First Tee of Greater Dallas, and The Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity. Also, RCC engaged in inter-RREAF vertical competitions to create over 200 Blessing Bags and bring presents for the Salvation Army Angel Tree. RREAF Charities and affiliates raised a commendable $60,000 for core charities. Highlights of the year include Salood's four partnership events and two funded grants, the Shootout ALS event where RCC sponsored five teams and had one team come in second place, surpassing the company donation goal for Walk to End Alzheimer's, and The First Tee Scholarship program's remarkable success in raising $108,000 while aligning with prestigious sponsors. RREAF Charities would like to acknowledge the generous support of The Marinelle and Kip Sowden Foundation, which matched and sponsored numerous events throughout the year. The ongoing dedication to community service and significant achievements throughout 2023 demonstrated RREAF Charities' commitment to positively impacting family, faith, health, and education throughout the local community.
