The Great Backyard Bird Count!

Another fun Friday at Wing Haven! This time it’s the Great Backyard Bird Count, a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. Stroll through the gardens, or find a place to sit. Your job is to count birds and record what you observe. The goal is to help scientists in their bird studies. Wing Haven welcomes volunteers of all ages, and promises to serve hot chocolate for everyone to enjoy!

Wing Haven is in the heart of Charlotte, at 260 Ridgewood Avenue. It’s a quiet spot to reflect and enjoy Wing Haven’s two public gardens. The event on Friday is from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Let’s hope for good weather!

Cupid’s Undie Run this Saturday!

Have fun and make a charitable donation! Cupid’s Undie Run is this Saturday, February 11, from 12:00 to 4:00 uptown. Party, run a mile or so, party – that’s the idea, all with your long johns on (not a requirement). The event raises money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation and neurofibromatosis research. Why the undies? People with NF can’t cover up their tumors. See you uptown!

The Life in Myers Park Ads Now Showcasing Local Landmarks: Freedom Park Kicking it Off!

Our agents posed for an newly designed ad in Myers Park Life Magazine, with Freedom Park’s 7-acre lake serving as the back drop!

Freedom Park, Charlotte’s “Central Park,” is nestled between the Dilworth and Myers Park neighborhoods. Catharine Pappas, Dickens Mitchener’s Director of Relocation, is a big fan. “The outdoor amphitheater is incredible and hosts concerts throughout the year that are perfect for a night out. Plus, the park boasts over 90 acres of fun-filled grass, flowers, trees and birds in the heart of the city!” So, when we considered different neighborhood landmarks for the new ad layout, our agents all agreed on Freedom Park. “Our family has so many memories at Freedom Park, from sporting events to summer evenings to first bike rides, it’s all there. Plus, the convenience truly can’t be beat!” exclaims 2016 Top Producer Isabel Roberts.

Freedom Park is also the site of the annual Festival in the Park, with lots of cool artsy vendors. For you celebrity spotters, the popular TV series Homeland  filmed the first two seasons of their series in the Queen City, including scenes shot in Freedom Park! Freedom Park is just one of the many great things Charlotte has to offer.

Be sure to check out our ad in the March issue of The Life in Myers Park, and future ads in the publication showcasing other neighborhood landmarks!

Support Children’s Cancer Research

Agent Joan Goode supports the Ultimate Hike challenge, to raise money in honor of local girl Emily Erin Miller. Emily Erin has struggled valiantly with cancer. We ask that you donate to the hikers raising funds for CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. Here are the details on the event. In the words of one of the hikers,

“I am participating in a true ultimate challenge – hiking to raise funds for children’s cancer and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal! Please, make a donation and make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day. My hiking team of 4 people are hiking and raising funds in honor of Emily Erin Miller. Emily Erin is a beautiful 8 year old girl and family friend living close to us in Charlotte, diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma just after her 4th birthday in 2012.  You can read more about Emily Erin on her “Fight Like a Girl” Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/EmilyErinfightslikeagirl/

Ultimate Hike is an appropriate name for this challenge. We will be hiking 28.3 miles in one day, on the Foothills Trail in north Georgia, on April 29th.  But it’s nothing compared to the challenge faced by the kids fighting the daily battle with cancer.

The money we raise will support CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children’s cancer research, with measurable results. In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children’s cancer for families and their support systems.

Five of the 43 children diagnosed every day do not survive. Please, support me as I help change the odds for those children most at risk.

Thank you for helping me work to tell children’s cancer to take a hike!”
