For Rent Media Solutions Challenge Cup Raised $16,000 for
National Apartment Association Political Action Committee
Houston and Dallas multi-family housing professionals
teed off against each other for a good cause
NORFOLK, Va.-(June 20, 2007) – For Rent Media Solutions, a leading apartment resource for searching apartments for rent nationwide and a division of Dominion Enterprises, raised $16,000 for the National Apartment Association Political Action Committee (NAAPAC) during the 11th annual For Rent Media Solutions Challenge Cup golf tournament. Hosted by the Houston Apartment Association, the May 11 event was held at the Falls Resort, in New Ulm, Texas.
The For Rent Media Solutions Challenge Cup was developed in 1996 to support the NAAPAC, which strives to educate Congress about the needs and concerns of the multi-family housing industry. The event is hosted in alternate years by the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas and the Houston Apartment Association. Participants play on one of two teams, representing either Houston or Dallas. Houston took home this year’s trophy, evening the score from Dallas’s win in 2006.
“For Rent Media Solutions has been the title sponsor of this golf tournament since it was developed,” says Brock MacLean, vice president of national sales and development for For Rent Media Solutions, who participated in the tournament as a member of the Dallas team. “We are honored to be a major fundraiser for the NAA Political Action Committee and will continue to contribute to the committee to support its cause.”
The golf tournament is a major fundraiser for NAAPAC, which has received a total of $176,000 contributed through golfer registration fees, since the tournament began.
“Not only has For Rent Media Solutions generously put together this annual fundraiser,” says Irica Solomon, director of political affairs for the National Apartment Association, “but they continue to generate awareness and support for the issues facing the multi-family housing industry. Without involved organizations like For Rent Media Solutions, NAAPAC would not enjoy the strong existence it does today.”
