Our community fundraisers have been busy. Whether it's a life-saving lemonade stand or a motorcycle ride to help fight cancer, no matter they fundraise, they help Nemours Children's deliver the nation’s best care to kids.
Enjoy these highlights from our most recent community fundraising events.
Iron Pigs Annual Event
On April 9, 2022 The Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club Hosted their annual event benefitting Nemours Childrens' Hospital, Florida. St. John's River Chapter is a non-profit chapter of the Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club comprised mainly of Law Enforcement Professionals, Firefighters and local business owners. Recently, as our efforts have grown beyond our expectations, we have organized the 501(c)3 non-profit corporation Iron Pigs Orlando- SJR, Inc. with the sole purpose of fundraising to directly benefit the children patients and families at Nemours Children's Hospital.
2022 Battle of the Brokers Fundraiser
On Thursday, May 19, 2022, a group of enterprising realtors and friends held a fundraising event that raised $5,000 to benefit Nemours Children's Health.
The Battle of the Brokers was the first annual bowling event designed to honor the event chairman's brother who was treated at Nemours prior to his death. 130 realtors, affiliates, sponsors, and friends gathered for an afternoon of fun and fundraising at Bowlero in Wilmington, Delaware.
“While being blessed to be part of an amazing real estate community I felt we needed an event to bring us all together again for an afternoon of old-fashioned fun. Since his passing, I'm always looking for ways to honor my brother, Rob Antignani. I decided to make Nemours the benefactor would be perfect. After suffering a traumatic brain injury from a bicycle accident, Rob was a patient in the hospital for almost 2 years. The treatment, facility, and staff were exceptional, and I've never forgotten. I chose a bowling event because Rob was an avid bowler in both the Special Olympics and the Blind Bowlers Association”. Carmela Barletto, RE/MAX Elite Realtor,
