Mayors in three major Upstate cities issued official proclamations of “Caine Day” Aug. 28 in recognition of Coldwell Banker Caine’s 90th anniversary. The three-event took place throughout the day in Anderson, Greenville and Spartanburg, featuring mayors Terence Roberts of Anderson, Knox White of Greenville, Jerome Rice of Spartanburg and other community leaders who gathered to mark the occasion and kick off the firm’s new “90 Days of Caine” initiative.
Officially announced during the event by Coldwell Banker Caine CEO and president Stephen Edgerton, “90 Days of Caine” is a 90-day, company-wide initiative designed to celebrate and support the communities that have supported Caine since 1933. As a tangible way to commemorate and cap off the 90th year, Caine agents and staff will spend the final 90 business days of 2023 highlighting the many organizations they support year-round and encouraging additional involvement — from hosting donation drives to volunteering with numerous nonprofits that are catalysts for positive change in the Upstate.
“We’re thrilled to spend the final 90 days of our anniversary year giving back to the communities that we’re so proud to call home,” Edgerton said. “It’s the fundamental commitment to serving our neighbors that makes this company milestone so special.”
In Anderson, Mayor Terence Roberts joined the Coldwell Banker Caine team at the historic former Anderson U.S. Postal Office that is set to open as Caine’s newest Upstate office and gallery later this year. Roberts declared “Caine Day” in support of Coldwell Banker Caine’s continued involvement with the community and future opportunities in Anderson.
“Coldwell Banker Caine has been helping our community members find their way home for many years, and we are excited to see how their new office continues that commitment to the community,” Roberts said. “Restoring a cornerstone area of our Main Street will be a major benefit to Anderson.”
In Greenville, the Coldwell Banker Caine team was joined by Mayor Knox White to declare “Caine Day” in acknowledgement of Caine’s impact on Greenville over the last 90 years while looking forward to future opportunities. Additionally, United Way of Greenville County president and CEO Meghan Barp addressed those gathered, saying United Way of Greenville County could not fulfill its mission without the support of incredible community partners like Caine.
“We’re especially thankful for Coldwell Banker Caine’s constant willingness to support us over the years,” Barp said. “The next 90 days are going to be very impactful for the Upstate, and I’m looking forward to seeing all the ways Caine continues to support our communities.”
Coldwell Banker Caine chairman Brad Halter, grandson of Caine founder Bubber Caine, closed out the Greenville ceremony with a reminder of what has been priority since day one.
"My grandfather Bubber would be proud of the organization that has been built since his passing," Halter said. "I truly believe he would be most proud of the culture of community and giving that has become so deeply ingrained in Caine's everyday operations."
Wrapping up the Upstate-wide event in Spartanburg, Mayor Jerome Rice declared Aug. 28 “Caine Day,” and Chapman Cultural Center president and CEO Dan Mayer recognized their key partnership with Coldwell Banker Caine.
“Spartanburg is enriched through the arts because of organizations like Coldwell Banker Caine that truly appreciate and support the communities they call home,” Mayer said. “Caine Day is a celebration of that dedication, and we can’t wait to see how they continue to support Spartanburg and the Upstate over the next 90 years.”
The 90 Days of Caine initiative began on Aug. 28 and will continue through the end of the year. Coldwell Banker Caine agents and staff will host donation drives, on-site volunteering with local nonprofits and encourage overall community support over the 90 days.
