PALM BEACH GARDENS – The sales team at San Michele was in full force at the recent Jupiter/Tequesta Unit of the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” event, which benefitted local programs for cancer victims and their families.

All four members of the San Michele sales team participated in the signature event, which is held nationwide. An 18- to 24-hour slumber party of sorts for people of all ages honoring the memory of those who lost their lives to cancer as well as those who have conquered their battles with cancer, the Jupiter/Tequesta Relay For Life raised over $140,000 to fund research and community awareness. Over 75 teams participated in the April event, held at the Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter.

Representing The San Michele team were Sandy Rigabar, a 10-year member of the local chapter’s board of directors and chairman of the R.O.C.K. (Reaching Out To Cancer Kids) Camp fundraising; Bill Dougherty, Susan Cirasuolo and Joyce Bartlett.

“We were very proud that the San Michele sales team took such an active role in this event,” noted Paul Asfahl, president of Sterling Communities. “It’s unusual to have unanimous support and participation by all members of a sales team. We applaud their service to our community.”

Earlier this season, Asfahl and Rob Gordon, chief operating officer at Gordon Homes, who represent the two builders at San Michele, presented a donation for “Relay for Life” to the San Michele sales team in honor of their volunteer efforts.

Inspired by the romantic villages of Italy, San Michele is a guard-gated neighborhood of 90 exclusive, luxury estate residences featuring four-, five- and six-bedroom floorplans. Homes at the community are priced from the $600,000s to over $2 million.

In addition to six professionally designed model homes, the community features the recently completed Venetian Club, a fitness center with state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength training equipment, a social room and tropically landscaped swimming pool, as well as two lighted Har-Tru tennis courts.

The community’s entry is manned 24-hours a day, and is adjacent to the new campus of The Benjamin School. Within minutes of San Michele are private and public schools, The Gardens Mall, restaurants and beaches.
