BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA – Majestic Properties, a real estate firm in Bakersfield, has announced that they doubled their donation in the holiday penny drive efforts in which they partnered with Patriot Elementary School to benefit the Ronald McDonald House, bringing the donation to a total of $2,500.00.
In early December, Patriot Elementary School implemented a penny drive in each of their 34 classrooms. Both the students and parents were encouraged to participate in the drive. “What an exceptional offer to join in partnership with Majestic Properties in raising money for the charity of our choice. Our school has a special affinity for the mission of the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House. We are thrilled to have this opportunity to join with Majestic Properties and make a difference in our community at this special time of year. A big thank you to Majestic Properties!”, said Jen Keyes, Principal of Patriot Elementary School.
Majestic Properties, and it’s founders Bart and Tracey Tipton, had committed to match the donation that Patriot Elementary’s students and their families brought in, but surprised the crowd at the presentation by doubling their match. “Majestic Properties is so thankful to be able to give back to the communities we serve”, says Tracey Tipton, founder of Majestic Properties. “The students and parents of Patriot did such a great job we wanted to do as much as we could to match their efforts”.
The charity that Patriot chose to donate the drive funds to was the Ronald McDonald house in Bakersfield. The Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House is open to meet the needs of pediatric patients at Kern County Hospitals and help reduce stress associated with having a hospitalized sick child. “We are so thankful to Majestic Properties and the students and their parents of Patriot Elementary School, this is absolutely amazing”, said Scarlett Sabin, the Manager of the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House.
Bart and Tracey Tipton, founders of Majestic Properties, have been in service industries for most of their lives. They both have backgrounds in the medical field. Bart has a pharmacy degree from Drake University and has over 18 years of sales experience. Tracey is actively involved in local schools and charities.
