  • Join us on May 12 at 6 p.m. for The Power of Partnership: Project HEAL and RE/MAX Preferred 2017, a fun event celebrating Project HEAL’s (Health, Education, Advocacy and Law) partnership with RE/MAX Preferred in Baltimore. RE/MAX Preferred owners and agents are committed to the communities in which they live and work.

    As a proud partner, RE/MAX Preferred helps ensure that Project HEAL can continue to provide advocacy and legal services to hundreds of low- and moderate-income families and children with disabilities who receive services at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Hors d’oeuvres, refreshments and live music will be provided at the event, which will also feature raffle prizes, including tickets to sporting events.
