JANUARY 3, 2008(SAHUARITA, ARIZ.) – – Long Realty agents Mary Benavides and Lara Abend of The Home Team in Sahuarita recently donated $5,000 to Anza Trail School for the purchase of a marquee. Anza Trail, a K-8 facility located in Rancho Sahuarita, holds special meaning to both agents: Benavides’ child, a 7th grader, attends the school, and Abend is a former teacher within the Sahuarita Unified School District. Benavides says that her involvement with the new facility gave her an understanding of its needs. "It’s a new school," she remarked, "they have been struggling trying to raise money for (a marquee), and, being a new school, they need so much. I thought ‘You know what? I can just make this happen.’" The marquee will be used to feature upcoming school events and additional items of note. Long Realty agents Mary Benavides and Lara Abend, The Home Team, joined Long Realty in November. The two specialize in Sahuarita and Green Valley real estate. Currently, The Home Team office is located on the frontage road in Sahuarita, but the two have plans to relocate their office to the Rancho Sahuarita Marketplace. A formal check presentation will take place on Friday, January 4, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. at Anza Trail School in Sahuarita.
