Sotheby’s International Realty Launches “Come Together” Initiativelivxmin
Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty (FSIR), a leader in the sale and purchase of luxury residences throughout Colorado announced today its first quarterly “Come Together” initiative. In addition to the company’s extensive corporate philanthropy throughout the year, FSIR is now proactively engaging its employees to personally contribute to a specific charity each quarter.
“The goal is to orchestrate a massive assembly of brokers and staff uniting for one cause. We plan to make a powerful impact on the lives of those in need by coming together as a company each quarter and giving back to the community in a big way,” says Shannel Ryan, Vice President of Marketing & Operations at Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty.
To kick off the movement, FSIR will serve as the official wine sponsor at the Wings of Hope for Melanoma Fundraising Gala held April 9, 2013. All donations come directly from FSIR executives, brokers, and staff members on behalf of the initiative. The 2nd Annual Gala benefits the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF), the largest independent organization devoted to melanoma. Committed to the support of medical research in finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma, the MRF also educates patients and physicians about prevention, diagnosis, and the treatment of melanoma – a disease in which young adults ages 25-40 are increasingly being diagnosed.
The cause hits very close to home for FSIR Broker Michelle Seward whose mother passed in 2009 of the disease. “Raising money to help find a cure for melanoma, the most lethal type of skin cancer, is an intensely personal project for me,” says Seward. “We must find a cure for this awful cancer which has become the fastest growing cancer in the world.” To make a donation to MRF visit www.wingsofhopeco.org. To get involved in the 2013 Wings of Hope Gala contact Michelle Seward at 303-886-0670.
