Northside receives donation in honor of Darian Cochran's Good Neighbor Award!

CAAR has announced that Darian Cochran, principal broker, of Avenue Realty, LLC is the first 2018 Good Neighbor Award recipient. 
The Good Neighbor Award program highlights local REALTORS® who dedicate significant time and interest to projects that make a lasting impact on our communities.
Cochran was nominated by his wife and colleague, Amy Cochran, for his dedication, commitment, and fundraising efforts to Northside Baseball League. In addition to being on the Northside Baseball League Board as the equipment manager, Cochran is also a coach. 
Cochran created, organized, and advertised a Northside Baseball League home run competition, where every time a player on a Northside team hits a home run, they are featured on the Northside Facebook page. In addition to player recognition, Cochran’s real estate office, Avenue Realty, LLC, donates $50 for every home run hit. 
“He probably puts in upwards of 100 hours as a volunteer in his board position. The coaching piece, probably over 500 hours,” said President of Northside Baseball League, Alice Riccabona. “Even kids in the major league - 10, 11, 12-year-old kids - who haven’t been coached by this individual have felt the impact of his giving to the league. He’s really touched everyone in the league.”
“Darian has been coaching some of those kids since they were 4 or 5 years old in tee-ball, and now they’re out there hitting home runs for the all-star team. So really, really excited to share this with those families, and the kids, and their parents,” said Amy Cochran of Avenue Realty, LLC. 
A $500 donation was made to Northside Baseball League in Cochran’s name.
