Coldwell Banker Bain: Community Connections

We would like to recognize the generosity of our brokers and their dedication to enriching their communities. Coldwell Banker Bain firmly believes that we are the best because of the quality of our brokers.

Coldwell Banker Bain | Bainbridge Island

This month, on August 4th, Coldwell Banker Bain of Bainbridge Island participated in the Art Walk which takes place in the Winslow downtown area of the Island. Fletcher Bay Winery was present to provide their pouring services to guests while a small band featuring a 96-year-old trumpet player played outside their doors. Dorothy Brown was the featured artist this month, displaying her artwork on the walls of the makeshift gallery within the real estate office and conference rooms. Snacks were served as people viewed the pieces of art and had the opportunity to talk to one of the many brokers who were present. At the end of the event, the artist graciously donated 10% of her proceeds to the Autism Speaks foundation.

The First Annual Coldwell Cruise-In was a LOT bigger than we expected but was ALL we had hoped for (we expected 30 cars).   We had lots of positive feedback (especially about the band).  Link to YouTube Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8v680K47iwg

We had a total of 72 cars registered and a few more that came late!
