The Great Trent River Raft Race is back AGAIN on Saturday, June 22 at Union Point Park. The revival of the race in 2018, after a 20 year or so hiatus, was a huge success! We look forward to this being a signature event for New Bern for years to come. The race takes hundreds of hours of planning plus hundreds of volunteers to make it happen. One of the most important components of an event of this size is, of course, our sponsors. We would like to thank Century 21 Zaytoun-Raines for being one of the Presenting Sponsors this year. Here is a little about them in their own words.
Since 1971 – Knowledge, Service and Success
In 1986, George Zaytoun and Marvin Raines combined their expertise to create what has become one of the area’s most successful Real Estate Companies. Michael Raines is the 4th generation of the Mccotter-Raines Legacy to run the family business. Our success is due to their leadership, drive and passion for real estate and the agents who have chosen to be a part of the Zaytoun-Raines tradition.
Century 21 Zaytoun-Raines is the proud recipient of the 2018 Community Fabric Award for Excellence in Business Leadership presented by PIE, Partners in Education. We are an annual sponsor for PIE; Partners in Education, Stuff the Bus, Book Drive and this year we adopted an elementary school and provided them with health supplies when the flu was rampant. We pride ourselves on giving back to our community. For every sale, our agents donate a portion of their earnings to our Community Fund. This fund allows us to give back to our community and show our support.
In the Community
Century 21 Zaytoun-Raines has been a drop off location for Toys for Tots for many years. Our agents are very generous in spreading the word & donating bicycles, toys, games, dolls, building blocks and time to “Toys for Tots”. We’ve provided pajamas for residents at a local nursing home and Merci Clinic is another recipient of our philanthropy. RCS (Religious Community Services) has been a big beneficiary of our monetary collections and food drives. We are a proud sponsor of The New Bern Chamber of Commerce Military Alliance “Military Family of the Quarter” program which recognizes and presents the selected family with a $250 gift card to show our appreciation. We also volunteer to cook and serve at their biannual Chicken Pickin at MCAS Cherry Point.
Other Organizations that have benefited from our efforts include the City of New Bern, Chamber of Commerce, Swiss Bear Downtown Development, 2018 Clean Sweep, Barn Bash/Promise Place, Hospice Breakfast, as well as being the Title Sponsor for The Great Trent River Raft Race for the second year.
