Local Couple Chooses RTS as Recipient of Holiday Party Fundraiser

On Saturday, December 18th, Matt Snell and Frank Chilelli raised funds for Rebuilding Together Seattle through their holiday party.

Matt and Frank have been hosting an annual holiday party at their home for over 10 years.  "One year we had up to 90 people and had to rent a tent with heater to extend the garage in order to have enough space to accomodate everyone," Matt said.  "A couple of years ago we added another tradition to our party and that was creating gift baskets and then selling raffle tickets to people who attend our party.  We have donated the raffle proceeds to various organizations throughout the years."  

This year, Frank and Matt decided to give half of the donations to Year Up (www.yearup.org) and half to Rebuilding Together Seattle!  

"As a realtor, I see firsthand many people who are unable to do basic repairs/maintenance to their homes in order to keep them safe and stay in them longer, so the work that RTS does is invaluable.  It was very easy this year to choose RTS to be one of the beneficiaries of our little holiday fundraiser," Matt explained.  

Check out Matt's company at Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Executive and Frank's business, Frank&Cents.   

A few photos from the party!

RTS thanks Frank and Matt for their generous donation!
