Dream Day 1

The real estate professionals at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty are well known for helping people fulfill their dreams of homeownership. Recently the team came together with nearly 1,000 others to celebrate and support a magical Dream Day unlike any other.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices came out in number to cheer on 50 special local children, also known as 50 brave Dreamers, as part of the Dreams Come True of Jacksonville’s Dream Day 2016.

“We were so honored to be a part of this incredible and unforgettable event,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Broker/Executive Vice President Christy Budnick, a member of the Dreams Come True Board of Directors. “It was a thrilling and uplifting day for everyone who attended, especially the amazing Dreamers and their families.”

Prior to the event, the Dreamers received a special invitation, hand delivered by Willy Wonka, to attend the Day of Enchantment at PRI Productions. Along with a golden ticket, each Dreamer received a distinctive costume of their choice for the occasion.

Dream Day kicked off with a Dreamers Parade along Kings Avenue in Jacksonville. Students from Lee and First Coast High Schools marched in the parade with the Dreamers, who were dressed as Super Heroes and other favorite characters. Hundreds came out to cheer and share in the excitement. The parade ended at PRI Productions, which had been transformed into a fantasy world for the Dreamers and their families to enjoy.

Dream Day is part of Dreams Come True’s Special Times program. While the courageous children served by Dreams Come True can only receive one dream, Special Times provides the child and his or her family ongoing opportunities to momentarily forget the realities of a life-threatening illness.

“Our dreamers are brave children and they must continue to fight their illnesses long before and even after their dreams have been fulfilled,” said Sheri Criswell, executive director, Dreams Come True of Jacksonville. “Events like Dream Day and other events in our Special Times program make it possible for us to continually support our children and their families with meaningful experiences designed to brighten their day.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty has supported Dreams Come True for nearly three years, donating nearly $100,000 to the nonprofit organization by contributing a portion of proceeds from every completed home sale. In 2015, the real estate firm’s contributions were allocated to support Special Times with the Jacksonville Jaguars in conjunction with Dreams Come True. Company leaders and associates are enthusiastic about supporting Dreams Come True.

“We truly appreciate the support we received from our valued customers and our passionate team to help make dreams come true for many deserving local children,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer. “Events like this remind the children and their families that they are special and loved.”

Founded in 1984, Dreams Come True has made dreams a reality for more than 3,500 children in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Thanks to contributions from its Board of Directors, Dreams Come True is able to direct 100 percent of all public donations, unless otherwise specified, to the dreams of children battling life-threatening illnesses.
