Last Thursday, Cushman & Wakefield was represented with two teams for the 12th Annual 6ON6 Volleyball Classic. The event joined teams from the Charlotte commercial real estate industry in a head-to-head competition that promotes camaraderie and networking while raising awareness and support for local charities.
This year’s Classic was proud to contribute its proceeds, $195,000 (25% increase from 2018) to Freedom School Partners. Freedom School Partners promotes the long-term success of children by preventing summer learning loss through igniting a passion for reading and inspiring a love of learning.
Here’s a recap of how the day unfolded for both Cushman & Wakefield teams:
Cushman & Wakefield #1 knocked off Stream in the 1st round 21-15. It was a close one, but the team was just getting into its groove and working out some kinks.
Cushman & Wakefield #2 had a tough loss to Lincoln Harris 23-21 with the hope to rebound in the second round.
Cushman & Wakefield #1 knocked off Asana to go undefeated, 3-0, in the regular pool-play bracket; cruising into the playoffs!
Cushman & Wakefield #2 knocked off Foundry (formed 2018 6ON6 Classic Champs) for a great win! Team #2 went 1-3 in regular pool-play and was pulled in to cheer on Cushman & Wakefield #1 in the playoffs.
The rain became to come down as the semi-final battle started.
Unfortunately, the mist cooled off the court for Cushman & Wakefield #1, who faced the best dressed Providence Group and ultimate champion.
Kudos to the entire team who played and helped a great cause! Special thanks to Caroline Cheek and Summer Gilliam with Cushman Cares who coordinated our sponsorships, Jacqui Aaron as our photographer and Julee Zack and Chelsea DePetro for being our fearless leaders and captains.
Well done team! Already looking forward to next year’s 6ON6 Classic!
