Making the World a Better Place
For Immediate Release
For several years, the South Florida complex has been a very nice active supported of Rebuilding Together Miami, a volunteer organization that works to preserve and revitalize housing and communities for elderly and disabled citizens. The support of this worthwhile program comes in the form of personal donations, PCG charitable donations, and hours volunteered by Raymond James associates. On April 27, also knows as National Rebuilding Day, renovation of a house un Southwest Miami-Dade by associates of the South Florida complex was covered by a local television station, providing tremendous exposure to the greater community. But that benefit pales in comparison to the results achieved by South Florida complex associates as they dedicate their time, energy, money and talents to improve the quality of live for others. Great work, folks!
A look around the country to see how your colleagues are putting out philosophy of "work, work, place" into action!
Peddling for a Cure
For the sixth time, the Raymond James Cycling Team participated in the annual Bike MS Citrus Tour benefiting the Florida chapter of the National Multiple Scleroses Society last April. A total of 26 riders from RJA, RJFS, the home office, education and marketing partners and event the competition (an advisor from LPL joined the teams and wore a Raymond James jersey!) teamed up to tackle the 150-mile ride from Lakes Wales to Orlando and back again. In the end, the Raymond James team raised more than $41,000, making them the third-highest fundraising team for the event. Congratulations to all the riders - you represent Raymond James so well!
