After a seven year partnership, Douglas Elliman Real Estate is on track to raise $1,000,000 for God’s Love We Deliver through its annual Ride for Love. The second largest independent residential real estate brokerage in the United States by sales volume will host the seventh annual Ride for Love to benefit New York City’s leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals for people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. A non-sectarian organization serves people in need and their children and caregivers throughout the five boroughs of NYC, Westchester and Nassau Counties and Hudson County, New Jersey. The million dollars raised translates into more than 100,000 home-cooked meals for those in need.
Bridget Harvey, founder of The Harvey Team at Douglas Elliman, will be this year’s ride director. She will supervise all volunteers, raised funds and logistics for the partnership between God’s Love and Elliman. Ride for Love offers bikers to participate in the full 108-mile ride, a shorter 50-mile trek, or the 25-mile sprint. 100 Elliman agents and staff are expected to ride this year.
It’s humbling to have the opportunity to continue our support with the annual Ride for Love. Elliman agents are committed to giving back to the communities in which we serve and we are thankful that God’s Love We Deliver provides us such a powerful platform to do so throughout New York City and Long Island. – Scott Durkin, president and chief operating officer of Douglas Elliman
The annual Ride for Love will end in Montauk. A party celebrating this important milestone will be held at Rick’s Crabby Cowboy Cafe.
Registration is now live, and the ride is open to the public. Participants can register here for a fee of either $99 or $199 depending on ride length, but if $500 is fundraised, Elliman will cover the registration fee. Additionally, direct donations to God’s Love We Deliver can be made here.
