A member of the Shore Builders Association of Central New Jersey (SBACNJ), Georgette Kyriacou, has accepted the nomination for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Person of the Year Award. She has hit the ground running to reach her goal of raising $50,000 to benefit the non-profit organization which provides resources for patients diagnosed with blood cancers. To support Georgette in reaching her goal in becoming LLS’s Person of the Year, the association is asking attendees of its Economic Forecast meeting on January 19, 2017 to purchase tickets for a raffle fundraiser.
The meeting starts at 9 am and will be held at the Jumping Brook Country Club in Neptune. According to Gina McNamara, Executive Officer of Shore Builders, “As a very active member of our association, Georgette has been instrumental in establishing our Professional Women in Building Council, as well as coordinating and assisting with several fundraising efforts for other organizations. In addition, she is a member of our Young Professionals Committee, and works for FWH, a Platinum Sponsor of SBACNJ. We will unconditionally support her in this challenge and look forward to being an integral part of her successful campaign now through July.”
As a complement to Georgette’s campaign, there will also be a blood drive, generously coordinated by SBACNJ Platinum Sponsor Ferguson Enterprises on January 18th on behalf of a family member of a Shore Builders member who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. To register to donate blood, you may do so by clicking here: redcrossblood.org and put in ‘code’ Lily. McNamara continues, “Our members are some of the most generous people I know. When they hear one of their own needs help, they pull out all the stops to do everything they can to support other members in times of need. Responding and helping is one of the things our association does best.”
In addition to supporting Georgette and the LLS, attendees at the meeting on January 19th will enjoy the 2017 economic forecast presented by Kevin Gillen, PhD, Senior Research Fellow from the Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation at Drexel University. Dr. Gillen’s research in urban economics and real estate finance appears in numerous publications and is cited in various policy applications. As the building industry continues to change and evolve, builders and associate members will learn what to expect in the new year for housing and development.
