Dan Grantham Receives Inaugural Community Service Award
Updated: Dec 14, 2018
London, ON – Congratulations to REALTOR® Dan Grantham, who was recently recognized by Gerry Weir, Broker of Record at Sutton Group - Preferred Realty Inc.*, with the first ever Community Service Award. At the presentation ceremony, Gerry described some of Dan’s impressive work in the London community. Among his many projects, Dan serves on the Executive Committee of Youth Opportunities Unlimited and has sat on their Board of Directors for more than 15 years. He was one of the organizers of Hockey Helps the Homeless for the third year in a row; proceeds of this ‘fantasy hockey tournament’ benefit shelter-based charities in London.
Dan helps to organize the Forest City Charity Golf Classic, benefiting Habitat for Humanity International. A few years ago, he helped to build homes in Bolivia and saw firsthand how safe shelter transforms lives. In 2016, the tournament set a record raising
$25,000, which funded the construction of three homes in Paraguay through Habitat for Humanity International. The 19th Annual Forest City Charity Golf Classic will take place on June 13, 2017 at the Greenhills Golf Club. To register, please contact Dan.
Additionally, Dan volunteers for the London and St. Thomas Association of Realtors (LSTAR) as a Director and Chairs their Finance Committee. LSTAR serves 500,000 residents in Middlesex and Elgin counties. It is one of the 10 largest REALTOR® associations in Canada with more than 1,600 Brokers and salespersons working out of 158 offices.
“Giving can not only be good for business, it’s the right thing to do,” says Dan. “It is better to give than receive as our family has been given so much!”
His long-term commitment to giving back also earned him the LSTAR Community Service Award in 2004.
“Sutton Group - Preferred is extremely blessed to have REALTORS® like Dan Grantham on our team!” says Gerry Weir. “He makes a difference in our community, in our office and in our industry!”
