Sales agents and staff at the Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE) downtown Vero Beach office recently hosted a lunch for the employees of Golf Carts of Vero Beach following a devastating fire at the golf cart business. The fire happened in early September and destroyed nearly 100 golf carts in the building. Fourteen employees were left without a paycheck due to the event. The employees were invited to lunch, which was provided by Nino’s Pizza.
“We just wanted to reach out a helping hand to a community partner,” said Jim Goldsmith, Managing Broker of DSRE’s downtown office. “We wanted to let them know we support them and that if there’s anything we, a local business can do, we’re here for them. Dale Sorensen Real Estate is community minded, we honestly live that philosophy.”
“This is just another example of how caring and charitable the staff and employees of DSRE are,’ said Dale Sorensen, Jr., DSRE Managing Partner. “Both Golf Carts of Vero Beach and Nino’s are great community businesses and partners. They both support the Vero Beach Easter Parade that DSRE hosts. We realize they’re here when we need them, so we want them to know we’re here for them too.”
Golf Carts of Vero Beach owner Tim Burklew sent a message to DSRE and Nino’s Pizza. “To Dale Sorensen Realty and Nino’s Pizza - Thank you for feeding our entire staff lunch today! Many of you have never realized how many employees were behind the scene at golf carts of Vero Beach! You guys are a blessing thank you!”
Because insurance will not cover loss of pay for the employees, a Go Fund Me page has been created to help raise money for them. As of September 12th, $16,731 of the $25,000 goal has been raised. To donate, go to https://www.gofundme.com/62ckmk-golf-carts-of-vero-beach
