TEEING OFF
Rise School of Dallas Brokers Cup Golf Tournament
Some 600 CRE golfers proved they're rainmakers on the greens (not just at the office), raising more than $65,000 for the Rise School of Dallas at Cowboys Golf Club, as part of the Brokers Cup Golf Tournament earlier this month. JLL SVP Jeff Eckert (far left) and Grubb & Ellis SVP Russ Johnson (next to Jeff), co-chairs of the Nov. 11 event, gather with Rise School students, parents, staff and Cowboy Cheerleaders (smiling for the camera is second nature for them). Russ tells us the tournament has a 10-year history, evolving into this larger event for the brokerage community to increase fundraising. The school's goal is to provide quality early childhood education services. Jeff says the tourney is an opportunity for all office building property owners (not just their clients) to showcase their buildings to Dallas' office tenant rep brokers. Some landlords sponsored holes with information about their available properties.
Mike Cleary, Baron Aldrine, Nyle Pruitt, Liz Pruitt, Mike Kay, Ward Eastman and Trey Smith.
We found CBRE's Mike Cleary and Baron Aldrine with long-drive champ Nyle Pruitt (who hit a tee shot for each team) and his wife,Liz Pruitt, CBRE's Mike Kay, and Capstar's Ward Eastman and Trey Smith. “This is an outstanding day to be out of the office with your colleagues and clients for golf at a first rate facility,” Jeff says. He gave props to Rise School's Laura ManningMaRetta Dyer, and Peggy Dyer for helping coordinate the event.
Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and Max
An old-school editor once told us  two things every news outlet should include: more pictures of puppies and  cute kids. One out of two isn't bad. Rise School student Max couldn't resist a little smile for the cheerleaders. Golf and fundraising were mingled with networking, too, Russ adds. The goal: matching office landlord brokers and office building owners with the tenant rep community. You had us at mulligans and the 19th hole.
