The Intero Foundation of Nevada County, a nonprofit arm of local Intero Real Estate Services, held a children’s charity event this past weekend at a Lake Wildwood property, to raise money for local nonprofit groups.

“It was our largest fundraiser to date,” owner of Nevada County Intero John Miller said. “We had more than 150 people attend and raised around $7,000.”

Held on Oct. 11, the fundraiser featured catered food donated by local restaurants such as China House, Tuscany Gardens, Buffalo Boys Barbecue, and Christopher’s Old World Deli. Raffle prizes were also donated by Intero staff and other local businesses.

Held at a 6,000 square-foot private property on Linnet Court in Lake Wildwood, attendees paid a $20 fee to enjoy food, beer, wine, and live music from local musicians. More than 30 Intero staff and eight employees from Evergreen Home Loans helped run the event, also giving items for the fundraiser’s silent auction.

During the event, a brief ceremony was held for Intero to hand over a $1,500 check to the Nevada County Diaper Project, a group that distributes diapers and food products to local families in need. Miller said Intero plans to donate to the diaper project on a biannual basis.

“All the funds raised here stay here and go to local charities,” Miller said. “We’re looking at several other causes as well, and we’ll be looking where the dollars raised at the event could be used locally by good children’s charities.”

Miller said Intero plans to continue raising funds for local charities through their foundation in the future.

“Intero Real Estate Services is a full service real estate company and we understand that part of that is giving back to the community that we serve,” Miller said. “The reason we do these types of events is to demonstrate our willingness to give back to the community that is supporting our business.”
