William Raveis Real Estate is opening Breast Cancer Awareness month with a bang. In addition to record fundraising at the company’s annual charity golf tournament last month, William Raveis offices will be holding nearly 100 fundraising events throughout the northeast in support of the American Cancer Society Patient Navigator Program, which helps support patients through the emotional, financial and physical stress of breast cancer. To date, William Raveis has raised nearly $1.7 million in support of this important cause.
“I am humbled by the efforts of our company as a whole to support those fighting breast cancer,” said Bill Raveis, Chairman & CEO of William Raveis Real Estate. “We have had a record year thus far and intend to continue this successful trend through year’s end.”
