Cushman & Wakefield Future Leaders (CWFL), a network of rising professionals within the firm that encourages professional development, hosted the 6th Annual Real Estate Bowl-A-Thon at Bowlmor Lanes in Norwalk, CT. The event benefited Domus Kids Inc., a $14 million multi-service organization, which serves more than 1,500 youth in school, out-of-school, and juvenile justice programs. Cushman & Wakefield’s Brian Scruton, Adam Klimek, Steve Baker, and John Altieri spearheaded the event.
In the Bowl-A-Thon, each team consisted of five to six bowlers, who each played two games in a set amount of time. The top score for each bowler was then used to compute the team’s total number of points. The winner was a team from Building and Land Technology – one of the largest landlords in Fairfield County – who was also the event’s “Kingpin” sponsor.
Over 175 professionals from Fairfield & Westchester counties played in the tournament, raising a total of $83,000 for Domus. During the last 6 years, the Cushman & Wakefield Bowl-A-Thon has raised over $500,000 for various charities throughout the community.
“Community engagement is an important pillar of the Cushman & Wakefield mission,” said Brian Scruton. “Our annual Bowl-A-Thon continues to drive fundraising efforts for extraordinary causes within our local neighborhoods, and we are extremely proud to be assisting the Domus Organization.”
Adam Klimek also shared, “We are beyond thrilled to be lucky enough to be surrounded by such a great community of landlords, architects, lawyers, contractors, furniture designers, and brokers who are all so supportive of this event each year. This event always benefits an organization that does incredible things for the community, like Domus, and it would not be possible without the incredible support of our sponsors.”
Since 1972, Domus has supported vulnerable, high-risk young people to rise above adversity. Through more than a dozen programs, Domus provides academic support, social-emotional skill building, and personal and practical connections to help guide youth through critical junctures in their lives so they may become resilient, positive contributors to their communities. Their vision is clear: that no child shall be denied hope, love, or a fair chance in life.
