SHELTON, CT— Last month, William Raveis Real Estate presented a check for $153,000 to members of the William Raveis American Cancer Society (ACS) Patient Navigator Program at the University of Connecticut Health Center and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Patient Navigator Program in Boston, Massachusetts in support of those fighting breast cancer. Active fundraising company-wide has brought total contributions by William Raveis to nearly $1.5 million dollars to help fight this widespread disease.
Attendees to this special event included, from the William Raveis ACS Navigator Program at UConn, Nancy Baccaro, Registered Nurse at the UConn Health Center and Pam Nixon, Head Patient Navigator for the UConn Navigator Program. From Beth Israel Deaconess, Ana Marin, Head Patient Navigator for the Beth Israel Navigator Program and Christopher Thomas, Senior Vice President for Leadership Giving for the ACS, were in attendance. These individuals discussed William Raveis’ fundraising as a catalyst for several breast cancer initiatives within their respective programs. This includes the Look Good, Feel Better Program, where female patients are given tips on facing adverse reactions from chemotherapy and the Man to Man program, which is a similar initiative for male patients.
William Raveis sales associates and staff participated in a 3 month long raffle to support and raise funds for the ACS Patient Navigator Programs in CT and MA. In addition, the company organized annual William Raveis Breast Cancer Golf Tournaments at Oxford Greens in Oxford, CT and Nashawtuc County Club in Concord, MA.
“The collective efforts of our sales associates, staff and members of the community in the fight against breast cancer has been nothing short of outstanding,” said William Raveis Chairman & CEO, Bill Raveis. “In just 6 short years, we have been able to raise close to $1.5 million dollars to support this important ACS initiative and positively impact the lives of thousands of breast cancer patients. My greatest thanks to everyone who has been a part of this endeavor.”
