Charlotte Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW, but you knew that) hosted more than 275 lucky bettors last week at its 5th AnnualCasino Night, where CRE types gathered to roll the dice for a good cause. Money raised goes to academic scholarships for women seeking careers in CRE. The event was at Whisky River at the EpiCentre uptown. Thin Lizzy?s ?Slow Ride? blared over the sound system as players sipped potent potables, rolled dice, flipped aces, and spun the Big Wheel.
Eight of nine CREW Charlotte board members attended: aiDesign'sKim Marks; Bonitz Modular Interiors? Barbara Briccotto; Evan Scout?s Madie Burch; Johnston, Allison & Hord?s Wanda Townsend; Concorde Construction's Holly Alexander; Master Title Insurance?s Dawn Royle; Babson Capital's Jill Dinerman; and Evan Scout?s Stacie Jacobs. Holly, this year's chapter president, says CREW raised $9,000 last year.
