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.
