Newmark is pleased to announce that its Phoenix office has raised more than $2,600 in student supplies for Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona (BHGH). The fundraising effort resulted in 800 scholastic items ranging from notebooks and binders to paper, Post-its and backpacks.
Newmark’s Phoenix office consistently looks for opportunities to give back to the local community. As part of this philanthropic approach, Newmark Capital Markets team members CJ Osbrink, Nicole Iglehart and Megan Eckert organized and cosponsored a school supply fundraiser with Biltmore Center owner ViaWest Group. Fellow Biltmore tenants, Press Coffee and Over Easy, assisted in hosting a breakfast event in the lobbies of the three-building complex to raise awareness and collect donations. “We were thrilled to have ViaWest’s participation and the support of the building community,” commented Newmark Executive Managing Director CJ Osbrink. “We had a lot of fun with this fundraiser and feel great knowing we made a positive impact on kids’ lives.”
Other awareness and fund raising activities included an interoffice competition for highest donations and prominent placement of collection boxes in the building’s parking garage. Phoenix Office Head Michael Garlick noted, “The interoffice competition helped to encourage participation and was a positive element.” Newmark’s Phoenix office donation competition was won by Senior Business Operations Manager Kathleen Campos, the Michael Garlick/Christopher Krewson/Mike McQuaid brokerage team, and Administrative Assistant Amy Tingey.
Newmark’s Phoenix office participates in annual fundraisers for Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona, one of 18 affiliates across the United States and Latin America helping academically motivated middle and high school students rise above disadvantaged backgrounds and become successful in college and beyond. BHGH’s goal is to graduate young people who are physically, emotionally and academically prepared for post-secondary education and a productive life, breaking the cycle of poverty.
