2016 Night in the Wild
August 19, 2016
The 7th Annual Fundraiser for the Coldwell Banker King Thompson Foundation was a Wild success! As final calculations are being completed, we are excited to announce that we grossed a total of $70,000, and of that total, we net raised of over $47,000. The Foundation Board will determine the amount dispersed to each office and the checks will be presented to the charity partners at the awards event in February. Thank you again to all that sponsored and donated, and especially to our Foundation Committee that worked tirelessly to keep our goals in front of the agents and staff in their offices. We’ll be sending out a survey soon to those that attended so that we can get feedback on the event. View pictures of the event here.

Coldwell Banker King Thompson Awards Ceremony
February 16, 2016
Coldwell Banker King Thompson Awards Celebration was held February 16 at the Ohio Union. Along with celebrating the accomplishments of the agents and employees, we were thrilled to present well-deserved checks to the 11 inspiring Central Ohio Charities that were supported by CBKT Foundation in 2015. In addition, we were graced by the presence of Corporal Joshua Sams to talk about what our donation to “Homes for Our Troops” has meant to him and his family. Our $18,500 donation ultimately helped in the building of his specially adapted home in Wilmington, OH.

Congratulations to all of our awards winners and thank you to all of the Central Ohio charities for the great things that you do for our local community every day.

The Coldwell Banker King Thompson Foundation golf outing – which benefited Homes for Our Troops – was a great success despite a stormy start! After a three hour rain delay, more than 90 golfers were able to tee off at NorthStar Golf Club.
