Queen Bees make an IMPACT in 2023!

The Queen Bees is a non profit that was formed at the end of 2022.  Five Realtors sat down and wanted to do something good for the community together.  And the idea was born! Christina is one of the 5 founding members.  The idea behind the charity is simple.  We meet 4 times a year.  Coming to the meetings is not mandatory you just have to commit to donating $400 per year.

This year The Queen Bees were able to raise over $30,000 to help local people in need.  Our 72 female members made this possible.  We were able to help 8 families.  There is a male chapter starting – The Hornets as well.

Last week we celebrated our success with our end of the year 70’s themed Gala where we announced the recipients and told their stories.
