Not only are we selling homes at a record pace again this year, but the mix of high-end home sales both this year and last is better than it has been since the peak of 2005.
We believe this is the result of an effort we’ve made since we began in 2015 to update the brand and our marketing approach in order to attract a higher-end demographic and the change to our new marketing firm, the Wyse Agency, in 2018. All this is coupled with the current environment, which is motivating folks to work remotely or retire to a new destination earlier. Where would we be without the Company’s marketing efforts to help them find us?
Together For A Cure (TFAC) is just around the corner! The events run from April 12 through April 20 and include all court sports, golf, and Wellness Center activities. Registration and detailed information about the event and how to participate is available on the website (www.lwga.net/TFAC).
All donations benefit the Mercer University School of Medicine in Savannah. Dr. Robert Visalli, Professor of Microbiology and Director of the LWGA Cancer Research Scholars Program, stated that the most recent donations (2019-2020) supported 10 Summer Scholars Research Assistantships, the creation of the LWGA Microscopy Suite within the Center Research Lab that included the capital purchase of Confocal and Immunofluorescent Microscopy equipment, and the purchase of a Luminex 200 Cell Analyzer to enhance research capabilities and attract high-level cancer researchers to MUSM-Savannah. LWGA was also credited for partially funding two research papers.
TFAC is the sole source of funding for the Summer Scholars Research Assistants. Depending upon the success of this year’s fundraiser, Mercer hopes to bring seven Summer Scholars on board.
It is clear that your participation has a direct impact on cancer research at Mercer. Please participate in this worthwhile event!
