Press Release (ePRNews.com) - HANOVER, Mass. - May 03, 2017 - CENTURY 21 Commonwealth , a leading resource for home buyers and sellers throughout Eastern Massachusetts, was recently honored with the 2017 Team Hoyt Award by Easter Seals Massachusetts.
The Team Hoyt Award recognizes those who have had a positive impact on ensuring equal opportunities for people with disabilities. With over 500 agents throughout eastern Massachusetts, CENTURY 21 Commonwealth has raised over $60,000 for Easter Seals Massachusetts through raffles, event participation and soliciting sponsorships.
The award was presented at the Easter Seals Massachusetts annual Evening of Empowerment, held April 27 at the Sheraton Needham Hotel, Needham.

The gala is held each year and honors people who are active in helping change societal attitudes and breaking down barriers for those with disabilities.
“The Evening of Empowerment is always such a special occasion celebrating those who share an unsurpassed commitment to empowering people with disabilities so they have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play,” said Paul Medeiros, president and CEO, Easter Seals Massachusetts. “Not only does it showcase all the hard work our organization and volunteers have dedicated over the past year, but it re-inspires us all, reminding us how important our mission is.”
