One of the highlights of Mega Camp each year is the Party with a Purpose. Associates gather for an evening of entertainment that supports a special cause. Previous recipients have included the Will Norton Miracle Field in Joplin, Mo., or the KW Family Fund that supports Keller Williams associates in Des Moines, Iowa.
This year's Party with a Purpose provided seed money for KW Kids Care, a new non-profit envisioned by Gary Keller to provide educational opportunities, scholarships and grants to the children of KW associates.
The festivities included a musical performance by Christopher Cross, a live auction, and a silent auction that raised funds directly benefiting KW Kids Cares. Among the items auctioned off was the opportunity to shadow Ben Kinney for a day, which sold for $10,000.
On the first day of Mega Agent Camp, Keller spoke to KW associate Nancy Frates about her son, Pete, who helped inspire the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge phenomenon that raised awareness and millions of dollars in donations. Keller said that people have the misconception of the word “kid.” They think it is defined by age. Keller said any child of a KW associate regardless of age is eligible to benefit from KW Kids Cares. To help Pete Frates, Keller challenged the entire audience to the Ice Bucket Challenge.
The KW Kids Care community learns together and earns together. We’re going to encourage our kids to give back to KW Kids Care, so that it becomes an organization of “kids helping kids helping kids.
