Syosset, NY - Mara Navaretta, President and Owner of Homes By Mara Realty of Syosset, NY, recently presented Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF) with a $1,000.00 check contribution that resulted from a percentage of commissions collected among her and participating agents. This marked the second check donation made by Homes By Mara since Navaretta established a special agency reserve fund the beginning of this year as part of her agency’s year round commitment to supporting CBTF.

Driven by inspiration over personal friend Fred Adlman and his wife, Bonnie, who tragically suffered the loss of their daughter Jill in 1990 due to brain tumor, Navaratta is happy that she and her agents are able to assist CBTF in its mission to improve the treatment, quality of life and long term outlook for children with brain and spinal chord tumors. “As a mother with an eight year old of my own, my heart goes out to every strong and courageous family out there who is faced with having a child diagnosed with a brain tumor,” says Navaretta. “I am truly touched by the amazing work that Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation does to help other children whose lives and families are impacted by this disease and am proud that my agents and I can invest in its important mission and the many children and families it serves. What makes supporting its cause even more rewarding is that it is does not just show hard work and dedication but also a great level of grace, humility and gratitude with every ounce of support it receives.”


Bonnie Adlman, who since the loss of her daughter has become a children’s brain tumor advocate and an active member of the CBTF Board of Directors, visited Homes By Mara to accept Navaretta’s and her agency’s latest contribution. “Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation is pleased and proud that Mara and her team have personally and professionally continued to support our cause and the families we serve. Their support is representative of being one of the pioneer businesses to form an ongoing relationship with our organization and we hope that other businesses will follow in Homes By Mara’s footsteps. Mara and her agents have made a strong, unwavering commitment to our organization and we are extremely grateful to have them on our team.”

CBTF Executive Director Joe Fay is also grateful for Navaratta’s and Homes By Mara’s continuous support. “The Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation is delighted that Homes by Mara has again demonstrated its commitment to our cause with sustained support,” Fay comments. “We recognize the economic challenges all businesses face today, since we face them as well, and we especially now appreciate the agents’ efforts. This highlights Homes By Mara’s commitment to support local charities because institutions like ours matter to their customers and to their communities.”

Navaretta will continue to donate agency commissions throughout the rest of this year, with another donation of the agency’s annual profits to follow at the end of the year. She and her agents are also planning to participate in some of Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation’s upcoming fundraising events.

Founded by dedicated parents, physicians and friends in 1988, Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors.
