Something I’ve seen time and again in my years in Dallas real estate is what good community players most Realtors and brokerages are, bringing support to a multitude of nonprofits and other worthy causes.
Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate always impresses me with their charitable activities and sponsorships around DFW. One of their longest-tenured relationships is with the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens in East Dallas. What a difference they make!
“We are so honored to have Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate support the Dallas Arboretum,” said Mary Brinegar, President and CEO of the Dallas Arboretum. “The firm’s continued generosity has allowed us to offer so many seasonal opportunities for those who visit us.”
The relationship is many years strong, said Marketing Director Catherine Chastain, who heads up sponsorship opportunities for Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.
“We’ve been working with them a long time — it’s probably one of the nicest family places in Dallas, where people can spend time outdoors enjoying nature,” said Chastain. “I grew up in that area and I can see how much it’s grown and the Arboretum has been a steady presence for many years in East Dallas.”
Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is a sponsor of Dallas Blooms at the Arboretum, one of my favorite spring events, which runs Feb. 25 to April 9. Dallas Blooms will feature tulips, daffodils, Dutch irises, hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies, and thousands of other spring-blooming flowers. The finale of this spring celebration is the mass flowering of the garden’s collection of 3,000 azaleas that bloom at the end of April.
The brokerage is also sponsoring ZimSculpt, a world-renowned exhibition of modern Zimbabwean stone sculptures, running April 15 to July 31. More than 100 sculptures will be on display, the largest collection ever assembled for a show in the U.S., with some pieces as tall as seven feet, hand-carved from stone.
Later in the year, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate will sponsor Autumn at the Arboretum, a spectacular show of color unfolding with 4,500 of fall’s favorite flower, chrysanthemums. There will also be 150,000 stunning, fall-blooming plants, the internationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village, and the outstanding Children’s Adventure Garden.
“I’m a big proponent of the arts and landscape arts and our sponsorship of the Dallas Arboretum falls in line with our brokerage’s support of cultural events around DFW,” Chastain said. “We are proud to be a part of this important part of Dallas’ landscape.”
