Adrienne Albert, founder and CEO of The Marketing Directors, has been re-elected to The Institute of Residential Marketing’s (IRM) board of governors for her second, three-year term.
Albert was inducted into the organization in 1984 and first elected to the IRM board in 2011.
IRM is a sector of The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), a trade organization which promotes the policies that make housing a national priority.
Albert will continue work with IRM board members to develop and provide sales and marketing educational support and programs for NAHB members, and engage building industry professionals in new marketing trends and techniques.
“As a member of IRM for the past 30 years, I can attest to the value it offers the industry, both educationally and professionally. I’m very lucky to be able to share my wealth of experience and passion with the board and members of the organization, and to positively contribute to the future of the industry,” said Albert.
Richard Gere, Jennifer Esposito, Danny Aiello, Stephen Baldwin, Sami Gayle, and Eric Trump will be attending the St. Jude Winter Ball, February 27, 2014, chaired by actress Julianne Michelle to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Auction items include an original painting by artist William Quigley, a 5-night stay at the luxurious Sloane Club in London, and an Evening Egg purse designed by Mrs. Frank Perdu.
Proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which treats and prevents pediatric diseases.

Realtor Mara Navaretta of Woodbury, NY and her agency, Homes By Mara Realty of Syosset, NY, presented the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF) with a $1,000.00 check resulting from commissions pooled by Navaretta and participating agents.
The donation is the latest Homes By Mara has made to the non-profit organization since January 2012. The ongoing contributions and support provided by Navaretta and her agency were born out of the broker’s inspiration for personal friend Fred Adlman and his wife, Bonnie, who suffered the loss of their daughter Jill in 1990 due to a brain tumor.
Bonnie Adlman, who has become a children’s brain tumor advocate and is an active member of the CBTF Board of Directors since the loss of her daughter, accepted Homes By Mara’s latest contribution. “We hope other businesses will be inspired by Homes By Mara’s efforts, with more and more participating in charitable organizations and causes,” she said.
Since establishing its 2012 reserve fund in which a portion of commissions are regularly designated to CBTF, Homes By Mara has contributed nearly $7,000 to the organization to date, an effort they plan to continue throughout this year and beyond.
