Matan Companies Raises Over $5,300 for Breast Cancer
FREDERICK, MD. – Nov. 17, 2016 – During the month of October Matan volunteers stood in the lobbies of their various commercial real estate properties throughout Montgomery and Frederick counties selling cupcakes and other “pink” items to their tenants, in an effort to raise money to support the fight against breast cancer.
With over $5,300 raised through sales and online donations, Matan’s 8th Annual “Cupcakes for a Cure” fundraising event was by far their most successful to date.
“I’m very grateful to our tenants for their support and participation again this year,” said Priscilla Ford, Portfolio Manager for the Matan Companies. “We expanded the event to our entire portfolio this year and I am proud to announce that we exceeded our lofty fundraising goal.” Every single dollar raised from every cupcake, pen, bracelet, bag, scarf and other “pink” item that was sold was sent to The American Cancer Society®and will go towards funding vital research and care that will save lives.
In addition to the breast cancer fundraiser, Matan Companies holds a number of fundraising and community enhancing events throughout the year. “From our Party For the Planet Earth Day Event and Food from the Heart Food Drive, to Toys For Tots and our Holiday Mitten Program, here at Matan we try to provide opportunities for our tenants and employees to help support worthwhile causes throughout the year,” said Matan’s Marketing Manager, Robyn Campbell.
In total, over the past 8 years, Matan has donated over $15,000 to The American Cancer Society.
