CBRE Cares 2018 GolfBash

CBRE, a commercial real estate services firm, raised $65,500 at its annual Charity Golf Bash in Austin this year. The event is organized by the firm’s Austin employees and supports seven nonprofit organizations.

“Our team members work very hard each year to make sure this event is a success. I’m proud of the dedication exhibited by each of the employees who volunteers his or her time for this event. Since 2013, our Austin employees have raised more than $280,000 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:

  • Austin Habitat for Humanity, in support of CBRE’s Shelter Program
  • Concert for a Cause
  • CASA of Travis County
  • Explore Austin
  • 100 Club of Central Texas
  • R.O.C.K. Ride
  • Austin Wildlife Rescue

“The success of this event would not be possible without the overwhelmingly generous support and sponsorship from many of Austin’s real estate service providers. Seeing everyone come together to raise funds in support of some wonderful local causes that directly benefit our community is truly inspiring,” 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 over 80 goods and services donated by local businesses, 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.
