– Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate Group and Weidmann Remodeling are proud to partner together to sponsor the Lake Oconee Area Builders Association (LOABA) Christmas Outreach Drive with a $2,500 donation for local charities during the holiday season.

The LOABA Christmas Outreach Drive supports several local charities to make the holidays a special time for children and families. The organizations impacted this year are: The Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club, Eatonton Service League, Greene County Christmas Stocking Fund, Circle of Love Center, animal shelters of Greene and Putnam Counties, Georgia War Veterans Home of Baldwin County, and the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services for Greene, Morgan and Putnam Counties.

Associates from Luxury Lake Oconee and Wiedmann gathered at their offices on Friday, December 1, to present Christy Kimbrough, LOABA Charitable Contributions Chairman, and Wendy Daniel, LOABA Executive Officer, with checks to support its holiday drive.

“This contribution goes a long way in allowing us to give to more organizations than ever before,” said Kimbrough. “We are so appreciative of the local support of our families and neighbors in need.”
