Muscular Dystrophy Association
While others focus mostly on balancing career and family, ERA® real estate professionals have been working for a quarter century on behalf of thousands of people they've never met. Since 1977, real estate brokerages affiliated with ERA Franchise Systems, Inc. have made time in their lives to raise nearly $30 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's effort to help children and adults with neuromuscular diseases. ERA Real Estate has participated in the national MDA Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon since 1977 when it became the real estate industry's exclusive corporate sponsor of MDA. Since then, ERA brokers and sales associates have been raising money to fund medical research and provide services to help more than 1 million Americans affected by muscular dystrophy. ERA network brokerages nationwide sponsor various fundraising events throughout the year, including golf tournaments, walk-a-thons, black-tie galas and silent auctions to raise money for the non-profit organization. Every year, the top fundraising office receives the Ed Bilinkas Memorial Award. For additional information about MDA fundraising, contact your local MDA office, visit the MDA Web site, or call ERA Public Relations at (973) 496-7904.
