As part of the effort, Keller Williams La Jolla will spend the day with Be The Match, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on saving lives through bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplantation. Organization representatives will be at the Keller Williams office in La Jolla, located at 7817 Ivanhoe Ave., Suite 101, on May 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
They will be accepting monetary donations for the organization and will be adding potential bone marrow donors to the national Be The Match Registry. Those interested parties between ages 18 and 44 are invited to the office to sign up as a registry member.
"RED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things to help others," Keller Williams’ Kelly Garver said. “We all know that filling all the gaps in our communities can't be accomplished by serving just once a year. RED Day just happens to be the one-day expression of the constant state of the Keller Williams culture. We see a need, discover who can meet it and get it done.”
“Every person who joins the Be The Match Registry gives patients hope for a cure,” said Shelley Baker, senior account executive with Be The Match. “We are grateful for the support of organizations like Keller Williams La Jolla. By raising funds and increasing the number of potential donors on the registry, they are helping us achieve our mission to serve all patients in need of transplants.”
Since the first RED Day in 2009, Keller Williams associates have given almost 500,000 hours of community service through activities ranging from food and blood drives to clean-ups in public parks.
Keller Williams Realty, Inc., established in 1983, is the largest real estate franchise company in North America, with approximately 700 offices and almost 100,000 associates in more than a dozen countries around the world. The La Jolla office employs around 120 associates.
