The weather was perfect as members and friends of CREW Greater Philadelphia gathered at Karamoor Estate Vineyard & Winery in Blue Bell, PA, to tour, taste, and network on June 24. This occasion was the Chapter's second significant fundraising event of 2021.
Through the attendance of 40 individuals and key sponsorships from Brandywine Realty Trust and PG Commercial Real Estate, over $2,000 was raised, bringing this year's overall fundraising total to nearly $20,000.
The philanthropic arm of CREW Greater Philadelphia is focused on several areas. First is providing college scholarships for women pursuing degrees in fields related to commercial real estate. Another is through support of our annual philanthropic partner - The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia this year, specifically supporting West Philadelphia High School's Architecture and Design CTE program. The Chapter's grant to The Fund will finance up to two scholarships for graduating female WPH seniors, update class computer hardware and software, and fund an industry-related field trip to be organized by CREW Greater Philadelphia.
Two other charitable events are scheduled for 2021, an online silent auction in September and a clay shoot in October. In addition, the chapter routinely opens an online store of CREW branded merchandise with a small portion of each sale going toward the fundraising goal.
Thank you to everyone who has attended our fundraising events and those who continuously support our philanthropic efforts.
