April 26 Diversity Celebration at Buddy Guy's Legends: What a Night!
Over 320 people attended the 2018 Diversity Celebration on April 26 at Buddy Guy's Legends. Throughout the evening, attendees listened and danced to live music by The Nu Blu Band and networked with others who are passionate about diversity in commercial real estate. The Celebration marked the 12th anniversary of the Reginald L. Ollie Inclusion and Outreach Scholarship. We awarded the 16th recipient with the scholarship at the event -- Christina Perez, Property Administrator for JLL. Christina has already completed one RPA class! At the end of the night, Geoff Credi (Health Care Service Corporation) was the lucky silent auction winner of the signed Buddy Guy guitar. Steve Zsigray (JLL) won the split-the-pot raffle and he graciously gave all of the proceeds back to the BOMA/Chicago Foundation. Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets and bid on the guitar.

We Raised Over $70K!
Because of your generous donations through sponsorships, ticket sales, the raffle and silent auction, we netted $70,500 for the Foundation. We broke records on all accounts this year -- through the number of sponsorships, tickets sold and money raised for the Foundation. Thank you to everyone who supported us, especially our 44 sponsors (listed below). We look forward to the 2019 Diversity Celebration and breaking records once again!
