3rd Annual Boerne Food Drive

November 8th, 2017 — We did it again! Each year Debbie McNeal works tirelessly with the Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries to coordinate efforts for holiday giving. This was our 3rd Annual Food Drive. Together we collected 420 cans of sweet potatoes, 420 cans of green beans plus a duffel bag full of sweet treats that were all delivered to Hill Country Daily Bread. This will help provide Thanksgiving meals to over 400 families this year. Our goal was not only reached but far exceeded. So, with the additional money collected, we will be purchasing Hams for the family’s Christmas dinners.

“I wanted to thank my CBHarper family and friends who contributed.”, says Debbie McNeal “By giving back we have helped to make the holidays a little brighter for these families.”

Thank you to all who participated, donated and shared in this effort, it wouldn’t be possible without you.

If you would like to join in giving back, contact Debbie via email

CBHarper’s 5th Annual Chili Cook-Off 2017

October 27th, 2017 — Here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® we hosted our 5th Annual Chili Cook-Off on a cool, windy Friday afternoon. Company-wide teams come together to simmer their best recipes and compete for bragging rights to the best chili. Aside from fun, food and live music, performed by our very own Clifton Jansky, this event kicks off our holiday ‘Bear Hunt’. Open to the public, our chili cook-off costs a modest $2 entry or 1 stuffed animal to enter.

All of the funds and stuffed animals go directly to our ‘Bear Hunt’ efforts. To date, we have collected well over 125,000 thousand stuffed animals and bears and many more thousands in monetary donations. Everything we collect benefits the local Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Police and Fire Stations, plus the well-loved stuffed animals are distributed to local pet shelters.

Our goal this year is to collect as many bears and stuffed animals as possible to spread the love this upcoming holiday season. Please visit one of our office locations near you:
