Sacramento, (PressExposure) January 24, 2012 -- Sacramento Financial Advisor Raises Money for Holidays
Keith Springer helps local families in the Sacramento area this holiday season with his 13th annual Springer Turkey Challenge.
The 2011 Springer Turkey Challenge was able to feed close to 10,000 people in need in the Sacramento region this holiday season. This has been one of their most successful years. The proceeds went to the Sacramento Food Bank, River Oak Center for Children, the Stanford Settlement and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Sacramento.
The Springer Turkey Challenge was started by Keith Springer, author of Facing Goliath: How to Triumph in the Dangerous Market Ahead, and president of Springer Financial Advisors based in Sacramento CA in 1999, as a way of giving back to the community. Springer said, "In the beginning, I would actually go to the supermarket and negotiate the price of turkeys, pay for them, then help the food bank load them into their pick-ups for distribution."
As the Springer Turkey Challenge grew, people began donating money instead of turkeys. This was able to help those who needed more than a turkey during the tough holiday season. Springer says, "This is one of the things I truly look forward to the most each year, something where I can actually make a difference to the world by helping out."
Most of the contributions come in as Thanksgiving approaches. They accept donations as low as $15 to "buy a turkey", which Springer then matches, doubling the pot. As Thanksgiving approaches, they present the money to feed the families most in need right here in our community.
