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!

Contest draws 1,268 entries and plenty of water cooler chat!

name it play it logo REDFINWe knew we’d have some entries when we created the new Name It, Play It contest but when the entries climbed to over 1,000 we were pleasantly surprised.  The contest also generated a lot of buzz.  We heard neighbors talking about it in the fitness center, it was discussed on the golf course and we even heard chatter about it in Publix.  And then there were the emails…let’s just say some people were passionate about their entries.  In the end, the entry with the most votes (591 to be exact) was Kingpin which cleverly speaks to Arnold Palmer’s nickname as The King and, of course, the golf pin.

name it play it logo REDFINThe Neighborhoods of World Golf Village, Honours Golf and Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village are teaming up for a once-in-a-lifetime shot for golf fans to leave their mark on the renowned King & Bear golf course.   The new Name It, Play It contest will invite folks to tap their right brain and suggest a creative name for Hole 15 on the King & Bear golf course at World Golf Village.  The King & Bear is the one and only time golf legends Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus collaborated to design a golf course.  The 15th Hole is Arnold Palmer’s self-professed favorite hole.  In fact, Palmer selected hole number 15 as one of his “Dream 18″ in Sports Illustrated’s Preview to the Ryder Cup 2006.

The Name It, Play It contest will kick off this Spring countrywide.  Contestants will submit a name suggestion for the golf hole.  Inspiration may come from the hole’s premier design, its stunning natural setting, the way it plays or elsewhere. The top submissions will be selected and voted on by the public.  The winning name will receive the honor of leaving his or her mark on the legendary course as well as an exclusive trip for two to World Golf Village, complete with deluxe accommodations at the Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village, golf for two on both the King & Bear and Slammer & Squire courses courtesy of Honours Golf, a travel voucher for up to $500 courtesy of the Neighborhoods of World Golf Village and more!

Davidson Appreciates Teachers ResizedOn Monday, Jan. 23rd the state Department of Education released their annual grades for county schools based on the 2011 FCAT results (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test), and various other categories.  For the fourth straight year, the St. Johns County School District is ranked number one in the entire state of Florida! With 67 total school Districts and 3,078 public and charter schools in all of Florida, it is quite an accomplishment to be consistently at the top each school year.

A lot of credit needs to be given to the students throughout St. Johns County for their hard work, dedication and performances, which is reflected by their overall school grades.  But the teaching staff in St. Johns County needs a standing ovation for the above and beyond attitude they put forth everyday to ensure our children’s bright futures.

That is why more than ever, we as a community need to come together and show our appreciation towards our local teaching staff. As of January 30th and running until February 13th, Davidson Realty’s 4th quarter of Davidson Appreciates Teachers is kicking off. They will be collecting nominations for all the resource teachers at Mill Creek Elementary and Wards Creek Elementary Schools, including PE, Guidance Counselors, Art, Media Specialists, Music, Computer and Spanish.
