Resident Spotlight: Ron Savarese

Posted by: Peyton Davidson in WGV Residents
 

Over the past 20 years, World Golf Village has been developed and nurtured by builders, contributors and residents who truly understood the vision of this special community. For more than five years, Ron Savarese has been one of those valuable contributors. We recently caught up with him to learn more.

Ron graduated from Franklin Pierce University in 1966 and joined the U.S. Army. After a tour in Vietnam, he taught fourth and fifth grades in Middleton, New York, and then pursued a more than 30-year career as a general manager and owner in the automobile business.

Upon retiring in 2004, Ron and his wife Gail moved from Southwick, Massachusetts right here to St. Augustine. They immediately fell in love with the area and Ron joined Davidson Realty in 2008. Since then, he has been dedicated to cultivating strong knowledge of neighborhoods and homes in and around World Golf Village.

Pacetti Bay’s recent Harlem Wizards event was a huge hit with World Golf Village residents and schools alike! The Harlem Wizards faced off against the “Wildcats” on Friday, May 23rd at Pacetti Bay. The fun event was hosted by Pacetti Bay’s PTSO and title sponsored by Davidson Realty and Davidson Cares. Over 500 tickets to the event were sold and approximately $5,000 was raised for new technology at Pacetti Bay!

The night was full of fun on and off the court! VIP pass holders were able to meet the Harlem Wizards’ players before the game and sit courtside for a front row view of all the action. Each grade made a basket to raffle for the event, including a sports themed basket, a family fun basket, a beach basket and others. Fantastic raffle prizes included Disney, Universal, Seaworld and more. And, there were delicious food items for sale all benefiting Pacetti Bay, like SOS Diner food truck and Little Caesar’s Pizza.

Around eight months ago, I received an email from Sharon Arnold at the American Cancer Society explaining that, without the community stepping up, there would no longer be a World Golf Village Relay for Life supporting cancer research for the American Cancer Society. I forwarded that email out to Davidson Realty’s agents and to my surprise, Realtors Amy Anderson and Debra Pappas took the entire project on themselves. With the blood, sweat and tears of the amazing committee members, World Golf Village’s Relay for Life on Saturday, March 29, raised $7,000 in one day. A total of $29,135.90 was raised for the entire event.

Davidson Realty’s VP of Marketing Peyton Davidson and Marketing Coordinator Matt Burkhart had so much fun delivering grant checks to Palencia Elementary School, Wards Creek Elementary School, Pacetti Bay Middle School and Mill Creek Elementary School! The Davidson Cares’ checks were awarded for the inspiring educational grant request videos submitted by teachers and PTO members for the needs within the schools. Voting for the videos took place from January 24th -  February 28th and teachers, students, parents, friends and the community were allowed to vote once a day for their favorite video from each school. All four schools received a $1,000 grant for the videos with the most votes and Pacetti Bay got an additional $500 for their anti-bullying efforts due to the importance of the cause. Congratulations to all the winners!

Antonio’s Pizza & Grill, located off CR 13 past Outback Crab Shack, is quite the hidden gem. But World Golf Village residents know them for their family’s traditional homemade Italian sausage. I recently made my first of many trips to Antonio’s to try out what my World Golf Village neighbors have been raving about. I was not disappointed by the delicious food or the excellent service!
