4th Annual Windermere Foundation Golf Tournament
It was a beautiful day on the golf course Monday, September 25 at Sand Point Country Club where 170 golfers came together to celebrate, network, and raise funds for Mary’s Place. The 4th Annual Windermere Foundation golf tournament was a great success; collecting nearly $20,000 that will be donated to Mary’s Place via the Windermere Foundation.
Mary’s Place was established in 1999 as day center for homeless women. Today, using their system of efficiently and effectively converting unused buildings into temporary emergency family shelter, Mary’s Place has 7-night shelters available for moms and dads with children that provide a warm bed, two meals, and a community of support for a total of 680 family members each night.
For the past 28 years, the Windermere Foundation has supported low-income and homeless families. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation serving families in need in Washington State, has grown to encompass eleven states and has raised over $33 million for organizations that provide shelter, food, children’s programs, and emergency assistance.
A huge thank you goes out to the sponsors and volunteers who helped make it an exciting and successful event.

Windermere and the Seahawks are Back for Another Season to #TackleHomelessness!
All of us at Windermere are very excited to kick off our second season as the Official Real Estate Company of the Seattle Seahawks!
Once again, our #tacklehomelessness campaign is front-and-center, with the Windermere Foundation donating $100 for every Seahawks home-game tackle during the 2017 season to YouthCare, a Seattle-based non-profit organization that has been providing services and support to homeless youth for more than 40 years. Last year, the Seahawks helped us raise $35,000 through our #tacklehomelessness campaign, and this year we are looking forward to raising even more money – and awareness – for this important cause.
Our partnership with the Seahawks and YouthCare fits perfectly with the mission of the Windermere Foundation which is to support low-income and homeless families in the communities where we have offices. Through the #tacklehomelessness campaign, we hope to be able to do even more.
A “score card” will be posted after each home game that shows how much was raised during that game. You can follow our progress throughout the Seahawks season on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/WindermereRealEstate.

Dine Well – Done Good!
Pictured Above: Laura Smith and Michele Flinn of Windermere Real Estate Co. presenting a check to Lindsay Carlisle, Victoria Austin and the staff at Seattle Food Lifeline, on behalf of the Windermere Foundation.
Last June, Windermere Real Estate Co. teamed up with neighboring restaurants to Dine Well – Do Good. Each Monday night in the month of June, Windermere Real Estate Co. matched tips made to servers – up to $3,000 per night – to raise money for Food Lifeline, via the Windermere Foundation.
Thanks to the generosity of Windermere agents, diners, and the participating restaurants, the Windermere Foundation collected $12,000 in donations. According to Lindsay Carlisle, Community Engagement Officer for Food Lifeline, $12,000 can provide approximately 48,000 meals to our hungry neighbors.
Food Lifeline is the food bank to food banks. They rescue millions of pounds of surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, and restaurants; then deliver this healthy and nutritious food to nearly 300 food banks, shelters, and meal programs across Western Washington. Through their own ingenuity and clever practices, a single $1 donation can provide the equivalent of four complete meals.
Please join us in continuing support to our local restaurant businesses who helped make this idea a reality. Browse through the following list of participating restaurants and stay tuned for the next edition of Dine Well – Do Good!
