)-- Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Charlotte is proud to announce its 8th Annual Casino Night benefit raised over $20,000 for the CREW Network Foundation Scholarship Endowment, as well as the Belk College of Business at UNC Charlotte and Queens University scholarship programs.
Sponsored by CohnReznick, Casino Night brought together over 230 top commercial real estate professionals at Founders Hall on April 24th for an evening of networking, hors d’oeuvres, casino games and a silent auction.
"This event is very important to me because I want to help others be involved in the same industry that I feel so passionately about,” said 2014 CREW Charlotte President, Bobbi Jo Lazarus. “I’m so thankful to the members, guests and volunteers that helped make this night happen, as it will ultimately help further deserving students’ educations."
Many guests went home big winners with auction items including Carolina Panthers tickets and sideline passes, a stay at the Ritz Carlton Charlotte, Hound Ears Golf Course packages, several autographed sports memorabilia and tickets, as well as local artists’ framed paintings.
The CREW Network Foundation Scholarship Endowment provides financial assistance to women pursuing higher education that will lead to a career in commercial real estate. It is the only foundation that dedicates its resources solely towards building opportunities for women in commercial real estate. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the Scholarship Endowment Fund at UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business providing financial assistance to students with a concentration in commercial real estate.
