Grand Haven Realty is donating $200 of every sale or new listing it gets throughout February to Mended Little Hearts of Volusia County, an organization that helps support parents of children with heart problems.
“Longtime Grand Haven sales agent and resident Dianne Thornton first brought the issue of juvenile congenital heart defects to our attention last year, when her grandson Cooper Ascone was diagnosed,” Grand Haven Realty President Jim Cullis said in a press release. “We joined forces with the Grand Haven Golf Club and residents in the community and Palm Coast to raise funds for Cooper last year, so this is a natural extension of that effort during National Heart Health month.”
Mended Little Hearts helped Cooper and his family during several critical surgical procedures, and Cooper is now a healthy 3-year-old.
Grand Haven Realty is also promoting a Mended Little Hearts benefit 5K Fun Run event on Feb. 15.
The event begins with 9 a.m. with registration at the Port Orange City Center, and the run starts at 10 a.m.

Flagler County Chamber to host Eggs and Issues breakfast
The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce will host its inaugural Eggs and Issues breakfast for 2014 at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26. The event will provide “an overview of the state of the chamber,” according to a chamber press release.
The chamber hosted the Eggs and Issues event series more than five years ago but temporarily retired it to focus on more local programming, Flagler County Chamber President Rebecca DeLorenzo said in a press release.
“For the past several years, we’ve worked with our affiliates to host the Palm Coast Chamber Meet and Greet and Bunnell Chamber Business and Biscuits breakfasts,” DeLorenzo said. “These events were always successful, but we wanted to bring back Eggs and Issues to focus on business issues and topics that affect our entire community, not just part of it.”
Reservations are suggested. The deadline is 5 p.m. Feb. 21.
The event is $15 with advance reservations for members, or $20 at the door. Non-members pay $20 with advance reservations, or $25 at the door.
