Riezl and Ted Baker, Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate, Sponsor Heart & Soul Gala
GREENSBORO, Ga. – Nov. 9, 2022 -- Riezl and Ted Baker have stepped up as Advocate Sponsors of the 2023 Heart and Soul Gala, an event benefitting St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital to be held at the Ritz Carlton, Reynolds Lake Oconee on Feb. 11, 2023.

The couple is no stranger to the event as they have been involved with the Gala since its inception. Riezl chaired the past three Galas and remains involved as the co-Chair for the 2023 Gala, and Ted has served as volunteer auctioneer for every event. The Bakers will also host Friday evening’s VIP Sponsor Reception at their lovely Lake Oconee home.

“I am truly humbled by the support we have received for the Gala, and I am very proud of our hardworking committee,” Riezl stated. “It is exciting to see how the event has evolved, with this year's event selling out days after tickets were released for sale."

Riezl has been a supporter and leader of St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation from the very beginning. She joined the Foundation Board in 2012, served as Chair from 2018-2019, and remains active as a Board Member. She and Ted are also society members of St. Mary's Good Samaritan Foundation.

“The hospital transformed health care in our area, and continues to enhance our quality of life,”said Riezl. “I am grateful to have served alongside great leaders who are passionate about Good Samaritan Hospital and our community.”

Ted and Riezl are successful realtors with over 40 years of combined experience. They founded their real estate group, Luxury Lake Oconee, with a mission to deliver superior value and unparalleled service to every price point available at Lake Oconee. The group is now the leading luxury real estate boutique brokerage in the area with over $145 million in sales volume to date (January-November 2022).

“Buyers and sellers receiving professional, superior service from knowledgeable, local realtors is the trademark of Luxury Lake Oconee. We are committed to maximizing client satisfaction through creative marketing and utilizing the most innovative technology platforms in today’s market, “ said Managing Broker Ted Baker.

The couple relocated to Lake Oconee in 1997 and have been part of the many positive changes in the area. They have two children: Stuart, a sophomore at Yale University, and Remi, a 12th grader at Interlochen Arts Academy.

“We are grateful to live in this wonderful community and believe that we have the responsibility to give back,” stated Riezl. “Good Samaritan Hospital is a cornerstone, and we will continue to support its mission to be a compassionate, healing presence in the community.”

“The Heart & Soul planning committee is truly grateful for Ted and Riezl Baker and Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate" said Sherri Kerstetter, chair of the Heart and Soul Gala Committee.  "We are fortunate to have community leaders and business owners, like Ted and Riezl, sponsor our event and support our hospital."
