The Keyes Company is an incredibly community-driven organization. We have to be. Our job is to sell in our communities! Our philanthropic involvement in supporting these communities centers around four essential components of their infrastructure - education, children, healthcare, and home.
On a rainy Saturday in late January, we continued that mission by hosting the 3rd Annual Miami Youth for Christ Over the Edge event. This year, 72 people rappelled down our headquarters in Miami, FL to help raise money to end youth violence in our communities.
Christina Vega from Keyes' Brickell office scaled the building as our representative in this year's event. Past years saw multiple company executives participate, including President and CEO Mike Pappas in 2017.
This year's event raised over $160,000. "Miami YFC is deeply grateful for our partnership with The Keyes Company and their desire to better our community by investing in our youth," remarked Executive Director Bonnie Rodriguez.
