United Realty, a privately held real estate investment and advisory firm, is proud to announce their sponsorship of Our Place's 5K Run Fundraiser at Floyd Bennett Field which took place Sunday, March 25 at 9:00am.
The 5K supports Our Place, a local organization that has numerous drop-in-centers that offer counseling, camaraderie, a home-cooked meal and referral services for troubled Jewish youth. The 5K was originally organized to raise funds to keep the program's doors open. The 5K raised over $100,000, surpassing the goal of $85,000. The event was attended by numerous politicians including City Council Member David Greenfield, Assemblymen Alan Maisel and Dov Hikind as well as Assemblywoman Rhoda Jacobs and Helene Weinstein.
United Realty's founder Jacob Frydman said, "We are honored to sponsor an event for a Foundation which provides safe and prospering environments for today's youth. We had a great time attending the race, and plan on supporting Our Place and similar organizations in the future."
