As the holiday season quickly approaches, CM Fox Real Estate in Guilderland NY is proud to be working with the Toys for Tots Foundation to help spread joy to those who need it most. From now through December 15, 2017, we will be collecting new, unopened, unwrapped toys to be distributed to local children. By delivering a new toy to less fortunate youngsters at Christmas, the goal of Toys for Tots is to also deliver a message of hope that will assist these children in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
CM Fox will match each toy donated at our Guilderland NY real estate office, located at 2390 Western Avenue. Toys can be dropped off Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
CM Fox Real Estate held its 5th annual golf tournament on Friday, September 8th at Orchard Creek Golf Club in Altamont, NY. To say it was a success is an understatement! We had 133 golfers, 20 raffle items, 2 silent auction items and 2 live auctions. We have our agents and community to thank for their continued support not only for this event, but for all of our charity events throughout the year.
Our golf tournament has raised over $130,000 in the past 5 years. The Ronald McDonald House and JDRF are staples to the entire Capital District community. We’re grateful we can give back to two organizations who provide so much care and hope to families who live in the Capital District, but also to families visiting the region.
Year after year we have had a ton of generous sponsors who make our event possible. They not only donate to the cause, they also volunteer their time. Our sincerest THANK YOU
to everyone involved!
Our Inaugural Spring Gala was a huge success and we once again have our community to thank. On April 29th, a beautiful Spring day, over 150 people gathered at Orchard Creek Golf Club in Altamont. More importantly, we all came together for a wonderful cause; to raise money for the Guilderland and Altamont food pantries and libraries.
Rich Becker was kind enough for be our official MC for the night. He spoke to the importance these organizations are to our community. To the services they provide and to all of the amazing people who run the libraries and food pantries. Hundreds of people volunteer their time every year in order to keep these organizations running.
Every year CM Fox tries to do just a little more for the people who always do so much for us. The Spring Gala was an idea brought to us by one of our own agents, Kathy Burbank. Kathy and her husband Steve Wacksman played an instrumental role in bringing this event together. Everyone spent the night networking, dancing, and fundraising.
Thank you to everyone who helped plan the Gala. Everyone who attended the Gala and to everyone in the community who continually supports us. It’s because of YOU that we are able to host events like the Spring Gala that enable us to give back to the community.

This past September CM Fox hosted it’s 2nd Annual Golf Tournament Charity Event at Orchard Creek Golf Course in Altamont, NY. Once again, it was a memorable experience. Every penny of the proceeds goes to benefit the Ronald McDonald House and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This year we raised nearly $30,000 for the two charities.
The planning starts almost a year ahead a time with a team of CM Fox real estate agents, administrators and managers who meet at least twice a month to make sure the event goes off without a hitch. You could say it’s a labor of love! Next year we will be at it again. The date is September 18th, 2015 at Orchard Creek Golf Course. We are always excepting donations, monetary or raffle for the event. It’s because of our amazing community, friends and family, that we are able to host such a successful event. It’s an event we’re proud to sponsor— You should be too!

Sadie’s and Lizzie’s Lemon-Aid
Our newest cause was created by 10 year olds, Sadie and Lizzie. They wanted to give back too. Their goal is to get kids involved. “Kids helping others” is their motto and it is working! ANYONE can run a Sadie’s and Lizzie’s Lemon-Aid stand and each Lemon-Aid stand benefits a different charity. Sadie and Lizzie know kids are passionate about giving back as well and they came up with a way for kids to get involved in a charity their passionate about. CM Fox Real Estate donates the lemonade and banner and the kids run the stand. Furthermore, CM Fox Real Estate MATCHES all proceeds made up to $200. We’ve donated more than $1,500 in just mover one month. We are excited for what the future holds!
CM Fox recently visited the Ronald McDonald House to donate $10,000 to the local charity from our recent golf event, and to spend time with some of the children who live there. It was quite an experience and we cannot wait to work again with the Ronald McDonald House in the future.
We also donated $10,000 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation that was raised from our golf event, which will go towards fighting for a cure for type 1 diabetes. We thank everyone who participated in last year’s golf event, and cannot wait to see this year’s outcome!
This year CM Fox coordinated a food drive for the Regional Food Bank, where we ended up donating 224 pounds of food! Thank you to everyone who participated, these donations will help meet the needs of over 1,000 charitable agencies that the Regional Food Bank serves and will help many people in need.
CM Fox also participated in a program called Christmas Angels from the Guilderland Commerce and St. Catherine’s Center, where children from local families were able to choose a gift they were looking forward to receiving this year for Christmas. It was a fantastic turnout:15 gifts were given to the Guilderland Commerce and 30 gifts were given to St. Catherine’s! Thank you to everyone who bought a gift, there will be many happy children this year.
