This week was the Triple Play Realtor’s Convention at the Atlantic City Convention Center and Residential Home Funding Corp. (RHFC) exhibited once again. RHFC chose to do a 1970’s themed booth, with a huge spin wheel that offered up prizes, a Studio 54 themed pop up picture stand, disco era music blasting, and all employees dressed head to toe in 70’s garb. The company mascot – Kody the key – was also in attendance, drawing attention from attendees and attracting them to the fun filled booth. There was no doubt RHFC was the most popular exhibitor, with tens of thousands of realtors stopping by.

But even more impressive than RHFC’s groovy booth at the Triple Play Convention was their annual Nerd’s Party held at Harrah’s Casino. Each year, RHFC throws the largest and most popular party, with this year being their biggest yet. Two thousand people came to see the Nerds perform in the Wildwood Ballroom at Harrah’s, with a DJ spinning intermittent hits that kept guests on the dance floor until the minute the party ended. RHFC even got everyone to participate in the “mannequin challenge,” the viral internet video trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a moving camera films them (see it here on YouTube:

The most important part of the evening was the money raised by RHFC for the L.E.A.D. Foundation – Law Enforcement Against Drugs – that was generated by the ongoing silent auction. RHFC works closely with L.E.A.D. as their efforts to keep our children educated and off of drugs are greatly support by our passion to do the same. It is imperative for RHFC to help fund foundations like L.E.A.D. because the heroin epidemic has affected us greatly not only in NJ, but nationwide.

“We are beyond thankful for Tom Marinaro’s continued support,” says Bob Kuegler, Police Chief and one of the founders of L.E.A.D. Tom Marinaro, President of Residential Home Funding, along with co-owners Roberto Lupi and Julio Salazar, were incredibly grateful for the support and money raised at their event.
