Realtors with @properties helped fund a $150,000 donation just made to Keith Relief, an organization founded by Chicago Blackhawks star defenseman, Duncan Keith. Founded in 2011, Keith Relief is dedicated to alleviating the financial and emotional burdens of those suffering from medical crises.
@properties co-founders Thad Wong and Mike Golden presented the check to Duncan Keith in a ceremony held at the United Center which aired during the Blackhawks vs. Blue Jackets game on March 31st.
@properties’ @gives back Community Fund provides an outlet for the company’s real estate agents, employees and colleagues to make a positive impact on dozens of communities and thousands of lives throughout Chicagoland. To raise money for Keith Relief, @gives back held a number of fundraisers headlined by the “@gives a hoot” country jam, which featured a VIP reception and hockey shootout with Keith, a silent auction and live entertainment.
Thad Wong says it was an incredible experience presenting the check on the Blackhawks’ home ice. “We’re big fans of Duncan and his commitment to making a positive impact on our communities, so it was great to work with his organization on such an important cause.”
“We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with Duncan and for the support we received from our brokers and community,” says Golden. “Last year was the biggest fundraising year ever for @gives back, and we look to keep the momentum going this year.”
Established in 2009, @gives back was created to inspire charitable outreach among @properties’ brokers and to support local organizations with an emphasis on education, homelessness, youth development and community.
