Douglas Elliman’s Seventh Annual Ride for Love Hits Million Dollar Mark for God’s Love We Deliver
Press Release – New York, NY (September 16, 2019) – Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the second largest independent residential real estate brokerage in the United States by sales volume, is thrilled to announce that as a result of its seventh annual Ride for Love benefiting God’s Love We Deliver, it has to date raised over $1,000,000 in monetary donations for the New York City based organization. One million dollars translates to 100,000 nutritious and individually tailored meals for people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
“Each year, I am amazed by the passion and dedication from our Elliman agents and staff,” says Scott Durkin, president and chief operating officer of Douglas Elliman. “It’s an honor to partner with God’s Love We Deliver to give back to the communities in which we serve throughout New York and Long Island. We look forward to reaching the next milestone together.”
Bridget Harvey, founder of The Harvey Team at Douglas Elliman, acted as this year’s ride director. She oversaw all fundraising efforts, raised funds and handled logistics for the partnership between God’s Love We Deliver and Douglas Elliman. This was her first year in the role.
“I’m incredibly grateful to Howard M. Lorber, Dottie Herman and Scott Durkin for their gracious help and support in reaching this million dollar mark,” exclaims Harvey. “God’s Love We Deliver is an organization close to my heart. It’s overwhelming to know that we’ve helped provide 100,000 much-needed nutritious meals made with love, and I’m so proud to be part of both Douglas Elliman and the work of God’s Love.”
