A MERRY CHRISTMAS
|We always thought real estate types hibernated in winter, dreaming of sugar plums and dogleg lefts. Our mistake. More than 80 CRE professionals from AIA Dallas, BOMA Dallas, CREW Dallas, NAIOP, NTCAR, TEXO and ULI North Texas recently helped The Salvation Army at the young professionals “Together We Give” event.|
Here’s Pillar Commercial’s Nick Clark and C. Pharr’s Leah Ekmark at the Salvation Army Christmas and Disaster Center in Dallas. Leah, TREC Young Guns publicity chairwoman, says volunteering here was great for giving back and networking. Her day job has her promoting client McCarthy Building Cos in work on the new Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre and the HQ for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.
Leah says TREC wants this project to serve as the catalyst for an annual event centered around volunteerism. The idea is to unite the young real estate community, while creating a better Dallas. This project lays the groundwork for connecting our groups more in 2010, she adds.
