Arbor Real Estate’s fourth annual ‘House Party’ raised more than $30,000 for The Rob Machado Foundation for their joint initiative Clean Water for Kids. The money raised will go directly to installing FloWater station in every school in the Newport-Mesa school district.
The purpose of the stations is to eliminate single-use water bottles — which pollute our watersheds and oceans — and to give students access to clean, tasty water. The Clean Water for Kids initiative has already funded and installed stations at Newport Elementary School, Ensign Intermediate school, Newport Heights Elementary, all in Newport Beach and Davis Magnet School in Costa Mesa. Water stations are scheduled to be installed at Newport Harbor High School later this month.
Arbor Real Estate’s House Parties has been the sole source of funding the installation of the water stations. Along with the FloWater station, each student is provided with a water bottle through the Clean Water for Kids initiative, to help and remind them not to use single-use water bottles which will foster pride in and a commitment to their beach community and environment.
Rob Machado attended the event that was held at the Arbor offices in Newport Beach. “It’s an honor and privilege to be part of this event and watch what we’ve been able to do in this community with the water stations,” said Machado to the crowd of more than 200 attendees.
“Clean Water for Kids is truly a community effort,” says Kristin Barry, Managing Broker at Arbor Real Estate. “We wouldn’t be able to do this without local businesses donating items for our auction, our agents giving their time and money and then, of course, everyone who attends the event. We are so thankful for all of the support for our kids.”
