Kansas City’s Block Real Estate Services helps sponsor breast cancer support event

Commercial real estate professionals aren’t shy about contributing to worthy causes. Block Real Estate Services in Kansas City is no exception.

The commercial real estate company on Oct. 1 was one of the sponsors of Within the Ribbon, a charity golf outing providing financial support to the University of Kansas Breast Cancer Prevention Center in Westwood, Kansas.

“This year’s event had a fantastic showing with 136 golfers, 60 putters and dozens of volunteers,” said Debbie Welsh, tournament chair of the event. “There was pink everywhere. It was a great day.”

The event raised $80,000. Researchers at the University of Kansas Breast Cancer Prevention Center will use this money as part of their efforts to study breast-cancer risk in high-risk pre-menopausal women.

As always, it’s good to see a company in the commercial real estate industry doing its part to support an important cause. And if you think that charitable activities are rare things for Block Real Estate Services, check out this page of the company’s Web site. It lists the many worthwhile causes that Block supports.
