Project 51 Community Giving Day at Baskin Robbins
Submitted By Wahidullah Qadir
Real estate community giving program Project 51 will kick off its summer fundraising campaign with "Project 51 Community Giving Day" at Baskin Robbins in Newark on Saturday, June 23. Patrons who mention "Project 51" will automatically donate 20 percent of their sale to fund the philanthropic mission of Project 51 and its eight East Bay charity partners: Centro de Servicios, Milpitas Recreation Services, New Haven Schools Foundation, One World Hunger, Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments, League of Volunteers, Union City Leisure Services, and Viola Blythe Community Services.
As an extension of this kick-off event, Baskin Robbins will continue to donate 20 percent of all pre-orders and drop-in purchases of ice cream cakes from June 23 until July 31.
Project 51 is the revolutionary idea of Founder Kenneth Tan, a philanthropist and real estate agent of 12 years, who leads a Keller Williams Fremont real estate team. Project 51 commits to donating 51 percent of the team's real estate earnings to established non-profit organizations to facilitate programs and events that coincide with their philanthropic mission and the clients' charitable interests. Their goal is to donate more than $51,000 to community organizations and projects in 2012, simply by handling real estate transactions for charity-minded clients.
"Real estate is about building communities. With Project 51 we want to make a grand gesture to the community by donating the majority of our profits to fund community organizations and projects," says Project 51 Director Christina Tecson.
Project 51 team members will be on-site at Baskin Robbins to hand out information about the program. Children can also spin a prize wheel to win from an assortment of small prizes.
"I am so thrilled at this opportunity to partner with Project 51 for this very meaningful cause for our community!" says Iris Wang, Owner and Franchisee of Baskin Robbins 31 Newark.
