WLREA’s Fall Picnic ’19 in Support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation

Kids are ready front and center for Scarlett’s magic show!

On Sunday, September 22, 2019, WLREA hosted our 5th community picnic in South San Francisco at Westborough Park! We partnered with Asad Taheri of US Bank and Tania Leung of Maintain Youth to host this wonderful community event in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  We had over 250 guests (clients, friends, children and pups alike) join us in a day of family fun at the park for a great cause.

Together, we helped raise $400 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

We are proud to support the cause that is leading the way in information, education and early detection. Since its inception in 1991, the foundation has grown nationwide and provides free mammograms to women in all 50 states through their network of hospitals.

1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and as of 2019, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. alone. For some, giving back to this community started with our picnic but your support does not have to end when the festivities do. To learn more about this organization and make a donation, click here. Your generosity will go towards providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. We appreciate each and every one of you for contributing, showing support or simply educating yourselves and spreading the word!

Event Highlights

Upon check-in, we gave out pink breast cancer awareness pins and an opportunity for raffle entry. We saw many families arrive right at 11 am with many admittedly awaiting the delicious tacos! Our partners at Rico’s Tacos certainly did not disappoint— we were graced with flavorful and authentic. Chicken and carne asada? Yes, please!

Our fairytale performer, Scarlett, from Happily Ever Laughter enchanted the kids with her stellar magic show, interactive parachute games, and shimmering glitter face-paint makeovers. Many parents couldn’t help but join the fun too!

Tom, our balloon artist, showed us some seriously impressive twists and characters including bow and arrows, crowns, and the biggest hit, Little Mermaid herself! Tom was gracious enough to stay even when the event was over to make sure everyone in line got the character or item they wanted.  Thank you, Tom! 

Throughout the event we had 3 raffles; our first winner, Jessica Bernal got to take home a Google Home and our second winner, Krystle Chase, is now the proud owner of a Google Chromecast. Both gifts were courtesy of our wonderful partner, Asad with US Bank. Our third raffle winner, Barry Som, was the lucky winner of an anti-aging and health supplement gift box from Maintain Youth. Thank you to our sponsors for their generous gifts and congrats to our raffle winners!

Once again thank you for getting involved, contributing to a great cause making this day special! Look out for updates for our next community picnic in the spring!

We are passionate about giving back to our community and helping whoever we can build wealth through real estate. We will be hosting a FREE seminar on how to add value to your home on Wednesday, October 2 from 6-8 PM at the Millbrae Library. If you have yet to sign up, you can do so here.
