12/14/2004 ~ In an effort to support local and national cancer charities, Keys Energy Services (KEYS) employees recently formed KEYS Cancer Fund . In their first round of fundraising the Fund was able to raise $4,000.00, which was equally divided between the Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys and the American Cancer Society.

KEYS employees expressed an interest to form the Fund in the fall of 2004 as a way to both combine fundraising efforts for both charities and to support cancer research (American Cancer Society) as well as local cancer patients in the Florida Keys (Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys). All employees volunteer their personal time to partake in Fund activities and fundraisers and all of the money that is raised is equally divided between the two cancer charities.

The initial donation of $4,000.00 was made possible by two fundraising efforts between October and December 2004. The first and most profitable fundraiser was the Fund’’s Fantasy Fest parking over the two day period of festivities leading up to the Fantasy Fest parade. KEYS employees donated their parking spaces and found alternative parking to allow for their usual parking spot to be “rented” out for charity. The Fund also held a Holiday Ornament contest for KEYS employees where the object was to make a creative holiday ornament using a light bulb as the base. Chances to vote for a favorite ornament were sold at $1.00 a vote, and all ornaments were put on the sale block for interested KEYS employees once all voting was complete.
