HousingWire Announces Partnership With CCF
HousingWire's Real Estate Expo Will Donate a Portion of Registration Proceeds to the Foundation's Carrington House Initiative
DALLAS, TX, May 16, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- HousingWire, the nation's most influential news source covering the U.S. housing economy, announced today that a portion of the registration proceeds from the 2013 Real Estate Expo (REX), which takes place on June 2-5 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, will go to the Carrington Charitable Foundation (CCF) and support the Foundation's efforts to assist veterans.
"The Carrington Charitable Foundation is doing some amazing work, especially in support of severely wounded veterans and their families," said Paul Jackson, publisher and CEO at HousingWire. "The Foundation's Carrington House project provides transitional and permanent housing for these families, and is exactly the type of housing-related charity that HousingWire seeks to support with REX, our national real estate conference."
Now in its fourth year, REX has supported a featured charity every year. The annual conference boasts real estate training sessions, technology exhibits, networking events, and six keynotes, including Gary Vaynerchuk. REX is one of the largest real estate events held in the DFW metroplex, and attracts real estate and mortgage industry professionals from across the country to the Lone Star State.
"We are honored and humbled to have been selected by HousingWire as this year's featured charity at their flagship event," said Rosemary Rose, Carrington Charitable Foundation's Chairman of the Board. "HousingWire will bring great awareness to the important work that we are doing to help our heroes, and the funds that will be raised will all be put to work directly to support our efforts to provide much needed housing for wounded veterans and their families."
