Cushman & Wakefield’s Future Leaders (CWFL) Bay Area Chapter recently helped raise over $1,100 in a charitable effort dedicated to Think College Now Elementary (TCN), a college-focused district elementary school located in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood. Transpiring just before school went back into session, all donations went directly in providing the school with supplies for the current school year.
Putting the “fun” in fundraising, CWFL’s successful summer fundraising event for TCN consisted of a BBQ and playful charity kickball tournament that took place at San Francisco’s Crissy Fields park on August 16th. The event was $10 for all participants to play and or attend, while monetary donations were also accepted. The fundraiser provided an incredible opportunity for members of Cushman & Wakefield and others to raise money for a school in need within the local community.
