Yorktown Heights, NY, June 6, 2014 – William Raveis Real Estate, the largest family-owned real estate company in the Northeast, announced that it has appointed Primavera Public Relations, Inc. (PPR) as its agency of record to represent its Hudson Valley operations.


At the same time, it was announced that Primavera PR will be launching a major year-long project designed to engage the New York William Raveis offices further into its communities. That program involves the sponsorship of a program organized by Physicians Against World Hunger which benefits organizations dedicated to alleviating hunger and homelessness in Westchester County as well as in developing counties.


“We are honored to be selected to be associated with so distinctive a real estate company as William Raveis,” said Bill Primavera, Founder of PPR, the longest running public relations firm in the Hudson Valley, established in 1980. “And to have the opportunity to marry Raveis to such a good cause is very gratifying.”


Primavera’s firm will be guiding Raveis’ efforts in each area where the company’s offices are located, to organize and produce a major event in which the region’s best restaurants and wine suppliers will participate along with merchants who will contribute to a fine quality silent auction.


The local Raveis realtors will act as ambassadors for the program from each of the Raveis offices, 13 of them currently – Armonk, Briarcliff  Manor, Chappaqua, Rye, Harrison Hastings-on-Hudson, Irvington, Katonah, Nyack, Piermont, Tarrytown, Warwick, and Yorktown Heights – and several more to come on line before the event on November 23, the Sunday before Thanksgiving.


Called “Giving Thanks: A Food & Wine Spectacular,” the climactic event takes place at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor in Mahopac, NY. For more information, contact: Bill Primavera, Primavera Public Relations at: 914-245-5390
