The Commercial Real Estate industry in Phoenix, AZ, is an active community with unlimited resources and opportunities to give back to those in need. Community leader Sperry Van Ness continues their commitment to individuals that face significant challenges as a result of life changing circumstances through sponsorships and fundraising for organizations that raise monies for our youth, as well as the underemployed/unemployed adults that are hoping to improve their lives through education and hard work.
SVN Partners recently “gave it their all in monies and effort”, says Neil Sherman, Partner and Senior Vice President of SVN, at the 2013 Brokers For Kids event, which benefits the Boys Hope Girls Hope program that empowers children to realize the potential that is within them.
In addition, Sperry leads the way as the exclusive top sponsor for the upcoming annual Arizona Women’s Education and Employment (AWEE) Cocktails and Clothes event, March 5th at the Adobe Grille, for the third year in a row. As the Diamond sponsor they assist AWEE in this after work fundraiser, collecting gently used and new clothing for the recipients that are preparing for the work environment.“This popular event provides a great networking environment while raising monies through the raffle and auction items that are highly sought after… and all for a worthy cause”, states Judy Jones, Senior Advisor at SVN.
AWEE not only helps women, men and youth find and keep jobs, they provide educational resources, mentoring, clothing and confidence…“Rebuilding lives through the dignity of work”
Friends of AWEE committee member, Tamara Ramos of SVN, comments ” The difference that we are able to make in the lives of those families that are struggling and hoping to re-establish themselves as contributing, productive members of the community, is truly rewarding”.
