Prudential PenFed Realty Hosts Showcase Event For Local Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria, Virginia

Prudential PenFed Realty hosts quarterly showcase events to display the artwork of local artists for the public to enjoy in Old Town Alexandria.

Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office began its series of art shows in 2010 to show support for the local Del Ray Artisans and charities close to the community. These quarterly themed events, hosted by Prudential PenFed Realty at their 300 N. Washington Street, Alexandria, Va., location began in July of 2010 and feature the artwork of the Del Ray Artisans accompanied by wine and hors d’oeuvres, fundraising, and the ability for the public to meet the artists and purchase their artwork.

The first event of 2012 was held in March with the theme, “Artist Warriors’ Adventures” which benefited the Organization for Autism Research. The artwork focused on the inner survivalist and warrior imagination. Special guest Nina Tisara’s mosaic artwork was on display as well.

In June of 2012 the office hosted an event to benefit the Organization of Autism for Research. The art show was dubbed “Childhood Memories,” and featured works by local artists that was inspired by their childhoods. The event also commemorated the Virginia Art Commissions’ Minds Wide Open, a celebration of children and the arts. Tisara made a repeat visit with her mosaic style artwork. Close to $500 in donations were raised for this community charity event.

Later in the year, the office hosted an event, “Spread a Little Sunshine,” that was a silent auction and art show designed to raise money for the Sunshine Kids Foundation; an organization supporting children with cancer. Approximately $5,000 was raised at the event, and the artwork on display at the show was created by the artists from the Del Ray Artisans Center.

“We enjoy inviting our clients, customers, local business owners and real estate professionals to experience the newest art exhibit and enjoy some wine and hors d’oeuvres,” said Sue Elbertson, REALTOR® with Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office.

Kicking off 2013, the office hosted yet another event showcasing the artwork of the Del Ray Artisans. The theme was, “Dot and Dash,” where artists interpreted dot and dash in their unique styles—showcasing two and three-dimensional work that is painterly, graphic, realistic, and abstract.

“Prudential PenFed Realty is proud to be able once again to team with the non-profit Del Ray Artisans to showcase within our Old Town Alexandria office the paintings, pictures and other visual arts produced by the thriving artistic talent within our local community,” said Maxine McLeod Miller, managing broker of Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office.

Prudential PenFed Realty in Alexandria is pleased to announce its newest exhibit celebrating works of art from the Del Ray Artisans. The exhibit, “Music In Art,” explores the relationship between music and art by showcasing artists’ interpretations of music in art in a variety of media.

“Del Ray Artisans is honored and pleased to show artwork from its “Music in Art” exhibit at Prudential PenFed Realty. Music and art have gone hand in hand for centuries, and these pieces explore the relationship between music and art by showcasing artists’ interpretations of music in art in a variety of media,” said Jackie Tury, co-curator with the Del Ray Artisans.

The opening reception is free and open to the public, and is scheduled to be held on Monday, July 15 from 6-8 p.m. Please stop by for some wine and cheese, chat with the featured artists, and enjoy a great evening! To RSVP, please call the office at 703.836.1464.

Alexandria, Va. (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

Fans attending the 2013   AT&T National at Congressional Country Club will once again see a special tribute to the United States Military near the 18th green. Donning flags and seals from each branch of the military, The We Salute Our Heroes tribute wall, which debuted at the 2011 AT&T National in Philadelphia, gives fans the chance to write a personal message of thanks and support for the men and women who serve in the military.

PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union),   one of the nation’s largest credit unions, the PenFed Foundation and Prudential PenFed Realty will again  serve as the presenting sponsors of the We Salute Our Heroes tribute wall;   ensuring the wildly-popular tribute will continue to be a part of the tournament’s military activities. Sharpie® generously donated thousands of markers, courtesy of Newell Rubbermaid, to be used at the tournament.

“It is our pleasure and a   privilege to be the presenting sponsor of the We Salute Our Heroes tribute   wall,” said Frank Pollack, president & chief executive officer of  PenFed. “It gives members of the public an opportunity to say ‘thank   you’ to those who serve our country in such an honorable way.”

“We are very excited to be part   of one of the country’s top golfing events,” said PenFed Foundation President   Christopher Flynn. “The tournament will be a great way for PenFed supporters   to have fun, while helping raise money for the men and women of our armed  forces who need help.”

“Prudential PenFed Realty   is honored to be a part of this great tournament in support of the military families who sacrifice so much to protect our liberty,” said Kevin  Wiles, president of Prudential PenFed Realty. “It is a great opportunity  to give back to our military.”

Last year, the We Salute Our   Heroes tribute wall made its Congressional Country Club debut with the help   of PenFed. After the tournament concluded, sections of the tribute wall were   framed and delivered to local military outlets in the Washington, D.C. area.   Thanks to the generous donation from Sharpie®, thousands excitedly   participated in this unique tribute including fans, caddies, volunteers and   PGA TOUR players such as 2012 Champion Tiger Woods, Jimmy Walker, Billy   Hurley III and John Huh. Due to the overwhelming response, the tournament   filled five large canvases with personal messages of thanks.

Furthermore to giving away   portions of the 2012 tribute wall to military outlets, this year PenFed will be giving away a one of a kind 40 x 48 inch framed portion of the 2012 We   Salute Our Heroes tribute wall in its tribute wall giveaway on its Facebook page.

In addition to honoring the   military, the AT&T National also raises funds and awareness for the   college-access programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation and local charities.   More information on the AT&T National can be found at http://www.attnational.org.

Prudential PenFed Realty – Alexandria/Arlington Office …helping Beth el House help homeless families transition

From the Beth el Congregation newsletter:

On Sunday, December 2, BEH volunteers gathered at Prudential Penfed Realty offices in Old Town, Alexandria for our annual Phonathon. We want to thank everyone who responded; however, it is not too late to make a contribution. We are still accepting contributions for the 2012 fundraising drive. Volunteers made over 600 telephone calls and organized letters for bulk mailing. We especially want to thank Conne Rubinstein for organizing the Phonathon again this year and  Jill Hanig for graciously making her office available.

It is so great to be able to help give back to the community and helping families find homes is at the core of our business.
