CBRE, a commercial real estate services firm, raised $60,000 at its annual Charity Golf Bash in Austin this year. The event is organized by the firm’s Austin employees and supports six nonprofit organizations.
“I’m proud of the hard work and dedication of the employees who volunteer their time for this event each year. Since 2013, our Austin employees have raised more than $215,000 for charity through philanthropic events,” said Scott Senese, senior managing director of CBRE’s Central Texas region.
This year’s event, held at TopGolf, benefits the following organizations:
- Any Baby Can
- Austin Habitat for Humanity, in support of CBRE’s Shelter Program
- Boys & Girls Club of Austin
- Combat Wounded Outdoors
- Freedom14 Camp
“We couldn’t do this each year without the generous support and sponsorship from many of Austin’s real estate service providers. It’s rewarding to see everyone come together and raise funds for great causes that benefit our community,” said Elyse Kaire, CBRE Cares Austin co-chair and a senior operations analyst at the company.
This year’s event featured the largest silent auction to date, with goods and services valued at more than $20,000, as well as a raffle, golf with Topgolf pros, and a wine pull.
CBRE Foundation, a nonprofit, public benefit corporation that funds the company’s philanthropic initiatives, matched a portion of funds raised, further amplifying the event’s success.
