65 business execs—including 32 real estate pros—slept on cardboard boxes outside in this year’s Covenant House Texas Executive Sleep Out. The event raises money for Covenant House, which provides housing and services to homeless teens and young adults. This year broke a record, raising $500k among the 65 Houston business leaders who took part. Pictured are some of the real estate sleepers—JPMorgan Asset Management executive director Gary Ross, JPMorgan Chase Bank managing director of commercial real estate Tim Waikem, Locke Lord partner Brett Hamilton, Republic State Mortgage branch manager Blake Pfeffer and Locke Lord partner Paul Pruett.
The Covenant House Executive Sleep Out took part across the US, Canada and Latin America, with over 1,000 business leaders sleeping on the streets of 15 North American cities. They collectively raised $6.5M.
