Westchase District Employees Raise $20,000 for Area Organizations in 21st Westchase District Corporate Challenge

Funds allow dozens of youth to attend Quillian Center Summer Camps and the Summer Business Camp for Girls

(Houston, TX – April 26, 2018) – Earlier this month, more than 50 teams competed in the 21st Westchase District Corporate Challenge. More than 300 employees from a cross section of area companies, including engineering firms, banks, real estate companies, schools and universities, got a paid day off to kick ball, run a briefcase relay, and play dodge ball, all while raising funds for summer camps for undeserved children.

Since the event, the funds and scores have been tallied. Thanks to the generosity of participating companies and event sponsors, including title sponsor Frost Bank, the event brought in more than $20,000. Since 1998, the annual event has raised and awarded more than $260,000 to area charities through the Westchase District Community Fund.

Real Estate Sparkles At FightNight 30

FightNight 30 – the 30th annual philanthropic endeavor hosted by The Real Estate Council (TREC) – drew attendees from all levels of the North Texas commercial real estate community to the Anatole Hilton on April 26. Networking was at its highest level. And, between appearances by famed boxer Marvelous Marvin Hagler, drop-ins from members from the Dallas Cowboys football team – the NFL draft was taking place at the same time, at AT&T stadium in Arlington – a stellar boxing card and active casino, the event raised dollars for The Real Estate Council Foundation.

Since 1990, the foundation has worked to improve distressed areas in Dallas by offering quality programming, funding and affordable housing. Since its founding in 1990, TREC has invested $7 million in cash and $75 million in pro bono professional experience in the Dallas community.
