Florida Keys --April 20, 2022  Coldwell Banker Schmitt’s year-end Awards Banquet served not only as a celebration of its agents’ collective and individual success this year, but also as a venue to raise money for those in need in the Florida Keys through its Charitable Foundation.

The Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation (CBSCF), in concert with local musician, Rob Benton, collected $44,662 at the gathering to be donated to the evening’s beneficiary, the Florida Keys Children’s Shelter (FKCS). A check for the total was presented to Ben Kremmer, FKCS’ CEO by CBSCF Board members and Mr. Benton.
