In a heartening display of community support, Harcourts The Garner Group, a prominent real estate agency based in Bend and Redmond, has joined forces with local restaurants and the Discovery West Builders Guild to raise $20,000 for a scholarship fund in honor of Jake and Josh Eckstein, two brothers who tragically passed away in 2019 traveling home from work. This initiative reflects a commitment to education and the belief that financial barriers should not hinder the pursuit of academic aspirations.
Throughout this month, Harcourts The Garner Group is collaborating with selected local restaurants to channel proceeds directly into the scholarship fund. The generous contributions from Mountain Burger on December 6, Washington on December 10, Drake on December 11, Bend Pizza Kitchen on December 12, Cuppa Yo Redmond December 13th and Wild Ride Brewing Redmond & Prineville December 14th will play a vital role in achieving the ambitious fundraising goal. For those who aren’t in town during this time and would still like to donate, you can donate here.
The collaboration not only showcases the commitment of Harcourts The Garner Group but also highlights the unity of local businesses in supporting educational endeavors. By partnering with Discovery West Builders Guild and local restaurants, the community is demonstrating a dedication to fostering opportunities for academic success. The funds raised will be channeled through the Oregon Community Foundation, a well-established organization dedicated to supporting educational initiatives.
