Our next sponsor is James Wilson of Keller Williams Realty, and he has this to say:

My name is James Wilson. I am a residential real estate professional with Keller Williams Syracuse. I have lived in Central New York for 32 years and really enjoy the people, changing seasons and the outdoor activities our area offers us.
As a real estate professional I take pride in offering the best customer service, communication and attention to detail to all my clients and other parties involved in the transaction. Many other agents I have worked with do not share my same paradigm which has made it a priority for me to ensure a better way. “It is about the people, not the agent.” I know what it means to communicate and I know what it means to successfully close a transaction making the buying or selling experience positive and seamless.


Our next sponsor is BETTER, Syracuse’s newest and best skate shop. Why are they called Better? Because they strive to make Syracuse’s skate and creative scene a better place.

Check out their facebook here for pictures of their shop and their stuff. You definitely want to give them a “like” because they are always doing fun stuff (this bocce party is only one of the cool things they do).


Imagine next winter when bocce season ends and the weather gets cold that all of us go on a Turbo Bocce cruise. It just might happen. Our next sponsor is travel agent Maria Belcastro and she’s got some interesting discount trips available that we should all be on the look out for.

logo Stearclear Syracuse is our last sponsor, and I saved them for last for a reason. My hope is that everybody drinks a lot and has a great time tonight, but we need to be safe. Stearclear is a company that drives both you and your car home, which should pretty much take away all temptation to drive drunk, and they will have a representative at our party.
