TCAR Fundraiser Nets $15,000 for Charity

The 8th Annual Joint Commercial Real Estate Networking Event, held on September 12, 2013, raised $15,000 to benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers, Inc. The money was split evenly, gifting each cause with a check for $7,500.

“This event continues to grow. Over the past two years, the money raised for local charities is up more than 50 percent,” says Joni Barnes, TCAR board president and director of sales and leasing for Pinpoint Properties. “We are so thankful to the sponsors, hosts and attendees who made this year’s event so successful.”

The annual event brought together more than 300 members from eight commercial real estate organizations for networking in a festive environment, with proceeds benefitting the area nonprofits. To date, $90,000 has been donated to local charities, including The Boys and Girls Club of Wake County, Hilltop Homes, Wake County Women’s Shelter, Pretty in Pink, InterAct, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Haven House and Urban Ministries.
