The @properties Friends and Neighbors Community Fund, a 501(c)3, was established by @properties co-founders Thad Wong and Michael Golden in 2009 to inspire charitable outreach and to support local organizations with an emphasis on education, youth development and housing initiatives. This year’s Chicago Revealed event co-chairs were Larry Giddings of @properties and Talia Pines of Modern Luxury. The Friends and Neighbors Community Fund executive committee is headed by Kevin Van Eck, president, and Ann Caron, vice president, both of @properties. Tamia Scott, of Oh My Goodness Marketing, is the funds executive director.
“It’s exciting to be able to raise money for two very deserving organizations that do such great work for the community,” Wong said. “Our agents and business partners are very charitable and really helped make this a successful event once again.”
