We’ve Got You Covered

 

Windermere and the Seattle Seahawks have come together to help #tacklehomelessness in our community.

As part of that campaign, our office is participating in Windermere’s
“We’ve Got You Covered” winter drive.

From October 17 through November 14, we are collecting new hats, scarves, gloves/mittens, and warm socks for YouthCare, a non-profit that provides support and services to homeless youth throughout the Puget Sound area.

Each night in Seattle, nearly 1,000 young people are homeless. Please help them stay warm during the cold winter months by dropping off your donation to our office in the Greenwood neighborhood at 311 N 85th St. Seattle, WA 98103 during the drive.

Windermere Cup 2016

 

This Saturday, May 7 marks the 30th anniversary of the Windermere Cup rowing regatta – an event held in conjunction with the Seattle Yacht Club on the Opening Day of boating season. This year is an especially exciting year as we celebrate 30 remarkable years of an event that was started by Windermere founder John Jacobi and the University of Washington, who came together to turn Seattle’s opening-day rowing regatta into something that could attract the highest caliber crews from around the world.

Over the years, countless universities and more than 20 countries have rowed in the Windermere Cup, including England, Germany, New Zealand, China, Australia – and the former Soviet Union, who raced in the event’s historic first year during what were very politically unstable times between the U.S. and USSR. Thirty years later, the Windermere Cup has invited Russia back to compete against the Husky men, bringing the event full circle.

“The very first Windermere Cup saw the former Soviet Union take on the UW in an epic matchup that would ultimately make international sporting history,” said OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “Bringing Russia for the 30th anniversary is as close as we can come to recreating that celebrated first race of this storied event.”

In addition to Russia, the UW men will face Stanford, while the UW Women will go up against the University of San Diego and Cambridge University.

To celebrate this year’s milestone anniversary, Windermere has released a coffee table book that tells the story of the Windermere Cup. Through insightful interviews, original documents, and breathtaking photography, the book captures the historic moments and colorful stories that have turned the Windermere Cup into an enduring, world-renowned rowing event. For more information and to purchase a copy of the Windermere Cup book, please visit http://windermerecup.withwre.com/ourstory/

We hope to see you along the shores of the Montlake Cut on Saturday, May 7 for this free, family-friendly community event. Races start at 10:20 ending with the Windermere Cup around noon, and followed by the Opening Day boat parade. There will also be food vendors, booths to purchase UW and Windermere Cup gear, as well as a bouncy house. More information can be found at www.windermerecup.com. You can also follow us at www.facebook.com/WindermereCup and @WindermereCup.

Community Service Day 2014

 

On Friday, June 20, Windermere offices in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Hawaii, and Utah will be closed for a very special reason. Since 1984, Windermere has dedicated the third Friday of June to our annual Community Service Day*. On that day, you will find our team doing a variety of projects, including cleaning, landscaping, and painting at local senior citizens centers, facilities for homeless children and adults, public parks and schools, low income housing, and emergency shelters, among others.

This year, our dedicated agents moved mounds of dirt, created raised garden beds, planted sunflowers, dug fence posts, helped build a sand box, painted the gym, organized games, cleaned, painted & scrubbed our local Greenwood Boys & Girls Club Community Center.

Tony Veliz, Richae Fox Beth Bylund, Scott Waterman Christian Moulin & Dave Hynden

Each office that posts a Community Service Day photograph or video on the Windermere Real Estate Facebook page, (www.facebook.com/WindermereRealEstate) the Windermere Foundation will donate $100 dollars to that office’s Foundation fund, to benefit low-income and homeless families. We encourage you to “like” our Facebook page, follow the Community Service Day projects, as well as your favorite Community Service Day photos. The office with the most photo/video “likes” and comments will receive a $1,000 donation for the Windermere Foundation charity of their choice. The contest will end Thursday, July 3.
