A $1,000 donation was presented to the Central Lakes College Foundation in the name of John and Matt Pecarich of Kurilla Real Estate on Monday, May 10.

The father-and-son Realtors selected the CLC Foundation, specifically the basketball program, as the first recipient of the first Good Neighbor Award, an annual honor presented by the Minnesota Association of Realtors.

The Good Neighbor Award honors Realtors whose volunteer work makes a positive impact on a community. Honorees demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to improve the lives of those in need by generously donating their time and talents to charitable organizations.

The Pecarichs regularly give time and money to support the Central Lakes College Foundation, a nonprofit organization that assists college students in need of scholarships, affordable housing and other resources.

They have also provided hundreds of hours each year coaching community basketball programs from grade school through the college level. They were nominated for the award by Sheila Holley, a Greater Lakes Association of Realtors board member.
