Sibcy Cline’s Kenwood Office Donates Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) Station to McDonald Commons Park in Madeira

AED Presentation for McDonalds Common Park in MadeiraSibcy Cline Kenwood’s real estate agents donated an automated external defibrillator (AED) station to the McDonald Commons Park in Madeira. This AED will be available for public use.

Stephanie Sudbrack-Busam, Vice President/Sales Manager of the Kenwood office, says, “If a person has a sudden cardiac arrest, this AED will double the chance of that person’s survival. Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States. It can happen at any time to anyone. By installing the AED at the park, our hope is to give someone a chance to live.”

Adds Jennifer Lukey Shinn, Co-Vice President/Sales Manager, “Our 90 agents feel it is really important to support our nearby communities and hope this donation will give Madeira residents peace of mind.”

NancySpencer Vice Mayor Madeira

At the AED dedication ceremony, Nancy Spencer, Madeira Vice Mayor reported the McDonald Commons Park is a very active place from morning until dusk. Many residents use the park for morning walks or runs followed by play-group sessions, sports practice as well as pickle-ball and baseball games. Hopefully the new AED will not need to be used, but is there to save lives just in case.

Steve Shaw Madeira Chamber of Commerce PresidentSteve Shaw, Madeira Chamber of Commerce president also welcomed the new AED system.

Mark Johnson Director Christ Hospital Heart Restart ProjectMark Johnson, Director of the Christ Hospital Heart Restart Project shared CPR tips as well as advice on using the AED. As a former 30-year firefighter, he expressed the importance of having the device nearby in case of a heart emergency.

Sibcy Cline Kenwood has a yearly philanthropic program raising funds to support local organizations and charities. This year they felt “Realtors with Heart” was an opportunity to contribute to the greater community. The Sibcy Cline Kenwood agents have donated over $160,000 locally since the inception of their charity fundraising in 2007.

Sibcy Cline’s Opening Day Findlay Market Parade Float Wins Third Place!

Managers_FloatThe Opening Day Findlay Market Parade is a long-time tradition in Cincinnati. For the first time, Sibcy Cline participated in this parade with our own float – and we won a third-place honor! We love our Sibcy Cline “red” and we love the Cincinnati Reds.

The Sibcy Cline float was organized by Amanda Duncan, Sibcy Cline’s Social Media and PR Specialist. Sibcy Cline Branch Managers shared their enthusiasm throughout the parade!
