Coldwell Banker San Francisco Bay Area is bringing a whole new meaning to the tagline, Give Health. Give Hope.” While the company and its Independent Sales Associates have always been committed to giving back to their communities throughout the years, in 2015, Coldwell Banker also decided to give its support to another worthy institution in the Bay Area: Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

With a network of care within only 10 miles of every Bay Area household and a simple goal to do everything possible to bring health and hope to children and their families, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford provides much needed services to thousands of Bay Area children and families every year with a plan to help even more. The nonprofit hospital relies on the financial support of the community so that patients are not turned away from care for financial reasons or complexity of treatment.

In an effort to support the hospital and its overall mission of providing health and hope to deserving patients and their families, more than 3,000 Sales Associates, managers and staff throughout the San Francisco Bay Area region rallied together to raise approximately $100,000 for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

The donations were a result of a community raffle held throughout the region, where Sales Associates purchased $2 raffle tickets on behalf of their clients, family and friends, which were in turn entered into a drawing for a number of prizes, including a $4,000 cash prize donated by mortgage partner, Princeton Capital. Bay Area offices also organized individual fundraising events, many open to the public, to raise additional funds. From a rockin’ and rollin’ for health fundraiser in Burlingame to a raffle and silent auction in Gilroy and activity kit drive in Orinda, every contribution of time, effort and enthusiasm for the cause was felt by the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital community.

As a result of the company’s commitment to giving back to its community, Coldwell Banker San Francisco Bay Area was recently honored with the prestigious NRT Humanitarian Outreach Award for 2016. This award recognizes a single NRT company in the nation that puts forth an exceptional effort—one that epitomizes extraordinary service to the community.

Coldwell Banker San Francisco Bay Area would like to recognize the incredible fundraising efforts of its Sales Associates, staff and community members that made last year’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford “Give Health. Give Hope.” charity campaign a great success. From office fundraisers to raffle ticket sales, it was incredible to see so many people band together to help make happy and healthy futures a reality for so many children in the communities Coldwell Banker serves.
