Additionally, the chapter demonstrated its commitment to giving back by presenting a $5,000 check to Junior Achievement of Southern California, a nonprofit that focuses on teaching financial literacy to youth and promotes a love of learning through experiential programs for students.
Olivia Crever, chair of the awards and gala, said, “This remains one of the only award programs to recognize the best in corporate real estate. It is an important part of our chapter’s focus.”
