February 16, 2017 – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services raised more than $1 million for the second consecutive year with their 2016 Choo Choo Chow Chow campaign for free care funds at children’s hospitals and related programs/activities. Last year’s campaign produced a record-breaking $1,043,128, bringing the total raised and donated to children’s hospitals and related programs/activities in Howard Hanna markets to more than $13 million.
“On behalf of the Hanna family, but most of all the kids at children’s hospitals in our market areas, thank you for the support of the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund campaign. We could not do this without the commitment of so many within the company who go above and beyond to make our Chow Chow events so successful or without the support of the community who donate and attend,” said Chairman, Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III.
The annual campaign, now in its 29th year, features Choo Choo Chow Chow events held by all Howard Hanna real estate offices ranging from the traditional lunch to bowling for kids, tailgate parties, dinner and dancing, food tastings and more – all with the agents and managers working tirelessly within their communities to gather donations for auctions and raffles, food and beverages, and venues, to create events that the public looks forward to attending each year.
