Major Mortgage donates $2,000
The second-annual Major Mortgage Cares online auction reaped a big reward for Mesa County’s Kids Aid. During Major Mortgage Country Jam, Kids Aid was presented with a check totaling $2,000.
“Our family truly believes in the Kids Aid mission and are happy to support this great cause,” said Ryar Hayward, Major Mortgage president.
The money was raised through the Major Mortgage Cares online auction, which took place during the first two weeks of May. The highest bidder won a Major Mortgage Country Jam package, including two, 4-day reserved seating tickets and a campsite. The check was presented to Kids Aid on the main stage Friday night preceding Lady Antebellum’s performance.
“It was awesome to be showcased during such a fabulous event. We are thrilled to have Major Mortgage’s continued support. This donation will make a difference in hundreds of schoolchildren’s lives,” said Mike Berry, Mesa County Kids Aid executive director.
Kids Aid helps feed Mesa County school children who otherwise may end up going hungry. The nonprofit organization provides backpacks filled with food to School District 51 students in need. The kids are sent home with a full backpack on Fridays and they return the empty backpack to school on Monday.
“We are looking forward to sponsoring future events to support Kids Aid. No child should ever go hungry,” said Bri Renzi, Major Mortgage Vice President.
