Ride for Love (God’s Love We Deliver)
In its seven years, Douglas Elliman’s annual Ride for Love—a charity bike ride—benefiting God’s Love We Deliver, has raised over $1,000,000 in monetary donations for the New York City-based organization. One million dollars translates to 100,000 nutritious and individually-tailored meals for people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. In 2019, 65 Elliman agents and staff participated in Ride for Love which ultimately concluded in Montauk. The event’s success continues to grow with each passing year as a result of support throughout the company.
