McKee Homes sponsored the Fayetteville Chamber’s Business After Hours event at Marquis Market in downtown Fayetteville Thursday evening, Feb. 25 at 5:30 pm. The Business After Hours event brings together many local residents, professionals and business owners from the Fayetteville area for a popular networking event.

Pat McKee, President of McKee Homes and President of the Home Builders Association of Fayetteville, along with wife Julie Russo who is VP of Human Resources at McKee Homes, presented the Alzheimer’s Association® with a promotional check for $30,000 which covers all the donations made in 2015 by McKee Homes. Lisa Roberts, Executive Director, Eastern North Carolina Chapter Alzheimer’s Association, accepted the check at the Business After Hours event. From 2011 to 2016, McKee Homes has donated approximately $135,000 to the Alzheimer’s Association® through the Joe McKee Memorial Alzheimer’s Fund.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association® website at alz.org®, North Carolina is home to more than 160,000 individuals living with Alzheimer’s and half a million unpaid caregivers. The Eastern North Carolina Chapter is responsible for providing programs and support services, information, referral, education and advocacy to the 51 counties of Eastern North Carolina.

“Our mission is to utilize our resources and good fortune to support the Alzheimer’s cause in the greater Fayetteville, Wilmington and Raleigh areas by raising awareness of this devastating disease, supporting initiatives of the Alzheimer’s Association® and helping fund Alzheimer’s care and research,” said Pat McKee.

The Business After Hours event was well attended with great food and door prizes given away by McKee Homes.

Community Involvement Near Raleigh, NC

McKee Homes doesn’t only focus on Raleigh homes for sale, we view ourselves as community developers, too. Our founder, Pat McKee, founded the business on a passion for building affordable, quality homes in North Carolina. Besides building energy-efficient homes with custom options in Eastern North Carolina including Fayetteville, Fort Bragg, Pinehurst, Raleigh, and Wilmington, we actively support projects with several organizations in our community, particularly those close to our company’s values.

Raleigh Walk to End Alzheimer's

The Raleigh Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

From 2011-2013, McKee Homes was the presenting sponsor for the Fayetteville Walk to End Alzheimer’s and made a commitment in 2014 to be the Chapter Wide Presenting Sponsor for all of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Eastern North Carolina including Raleigh, NC.

North Carolina Military Appreciation Baseball Game

McKee Homes has previously sponsored an NC State military appreciation baseball game that took place at Doak Field, Dail Park. Among the service men and women from North Carolina, numerous military groups represented different bases, including Special Airmen from Pope Air Force Base and the Wounded Warrior Project. The day includes fun pregame activities in the open space between Dail Park and Doak Field as well as Lee Dormitory which was named in honor of North Carolina’s most famous alumni, Gen. William C. Lee, who was also Father of the U.S. Airborne Division.

The state has military roots that date back to 1887. Over the years, North Carolina has produced more generals and admirals than any other state, so we feel passionate about supporting our service men and women.

McKee Owners Are Hands-On in the Community

McKee owner, Julie Russo, doesn’t only manage Raleigh homes for sale, but is actively involved in our community, particularly through her volunteer work at some of the schools in Wake County and Raleigh.

With over 20 years spent as an elementary teacher and math coach in Nash Rocky Mount Schools and Wake County, Julie has developed the tools to be able to understand and give back to our community’s children. Julie still visits classrooms in Wake County and has plans to begin work with Knightdale Elementary School.

Julie enjoys nothing more than bringing her two passions together: helping McKee Homes build a strong education-business relationship and teaching elementary school. To find out more about Julies’ work, visit structuresofequality.com
