Realty Executives Midwest believes in giving back to the community in which they live and work. Recently, Broker Joan Wayman assisted in organizing the Rotary Club of Darien, Illinois’ Taste of Route 66 event. This annual event features local restaurants who create delicious samples for ticket holders. People are also able to bid online to purchase donated items. All proceeds benefit a local Food for Kids Program put in place to help food-insecure children bring meals home on Fridays during the school year, as many families may be dependent on school sponsored lunches. Every six weeks, Wayman coordinates the Rotary Club members and local volunteers to buy and pack over 1,100 food bags for school social workers to privately place into the children’s backpacks. This years, the Taste of Route 66 event raised over $31,000 to help buy and pack nutritional meals for 200+ elementary students.

For the past five years or so, Waunakee’s Wine Walks have drawn hundreds to the downtown area to visit the shops and experience a night out.
But many may not realize that the event, organized by a small group of energetic women, raises funds to help the community.
The Waunakee Professional Women’s group, or WPW, is a 501 © 3 nonprofit and uses the proceeds for college scholarships and to help Waunakee residents in need.
For 20 years, Gina Marie John had been an agent for a Re/Max real estate office with the dream of one day being a broker and owner at her own firm. That dream came true a few months ago when she opened Realty Executives Capital City, 5707 Highway 51, McFarland.
“This is a brand new venture,” John said.
She began working out of the office in the first week of February and the sign was installed on the building March 25. Young held a ribbon-cutting and open house March 28 to celebrate.
