It's that time of year again... pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider donuts, Friday night lights and soccer Saturday mornings. For Suzanne & Company, this time of year is one of our busiest for community building and sponsorship! We are so proud of the towns and organizations we support, we thought we would let you know where we will be, so that you can join in on the fun.
BHS Football Sponsorship. Look for our banner at the home games this season! Our proud partnership started years ago when Transaction Coordinator, Maureen Eliason, had her sons Jake and Billy playing on the team! We haven't given up yet - still have a lot of love for our Friday night lights. Catch the first home game on September 21st @ 7 pm against North Reading. If you want to mark your calendar for all the games this season, you can grab the schedule here!
Danny Oates Memorial 5k Sponsorship. When: September 22nd. This is one of our favorite yearly sponsorships! For starters, it kicks off Suzanne's favorite holiday of the year - Bedford Day! And of course, it's a morning to remember Danny Oates, the bond our excellent Bedford Fire Department has, and all the scholarship money that has been raised over the years for Bedford grads. You will likely catch a couple of our team members running the 5k and some of us cheering the rest of you on!

Bedford Day "jail" to support Relay for Life! When: September 22nd. Last year we had so much fun bringing the jail back to Bedford Day after its long hiatus. This year we are proud to be partnering with Relay for LIfe of Bedford to raise money to support the American Cancer Society. Visit us and you can have someone "arrested" during the fair and put into our jail! You will have to donate to arrest and donate to post bail! How fun is that?!?! And the best part is that 100% of the money donated will go straight to the Relay for Life fundraising efforts. Want to learn more about this organization? Click here!
St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. When: September 22nd. We are proud to sponsor Beth Benker, one of our awesome Buyer Agents! The event begins at 9:15 am at Boston Common. Beth and her family will be joining the thousands of other participants as they raise money for such a remarkable cause! If you can't get into Boston to be a part of the day, but still want to contribute, please do so here!
Pam's Run to Support the Neighbor Brigade. When: October 14th. For the second year in a row, we are thrilled to be a Gold Sponsor for this fabulous organization. The Neighbor Brigade establishes community-specific networks of volunteers that can be mobilized to help residents facing sudden crisis manage day-to-day tasks such as meal preparation, rides, and basic household chores. This is the 6th Annual Pam's Run and the biggest fundraiser for the Neighbor Brigade. We had so much fun participating last year! There's live music, cash awards, kids activities and more!

Trunk or Treat! When: October 26th from 4-6. This annual event draws around 500 ghosts, super heroes, princesses and monsters to the Whole Foods parking lot to visit the many businesses that participate each year to hand out candy! It's a fun community event and we love seeing the creative of the Bedford businesses and of course the smiles from all the little kids!

Matty's Monster Dash to support the Friends for Matty Foundation. When: October, 27th. We are so thrilled to support this awesome organization. The Langone Family started this great cause in memory of their son, Matty who lost his battle with cancer. All the proceeds of these events go to support families with children who have cancer. Like most races, this is a family-friendly event. If you don't think you can make the race, you can show your support by attending the Matty's Silent Auction Sports Night on September 29th at Cafe Escadrille in Burlington.
