@gives back Raises Over $250,000 for the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation

As part of our ongoing endeavor to help strengthen our neighborhoods, @gives back – @properties’ non-profit foundation – continually partners with local organizations that are dedicated to making a positive impact on the community. Our agents, employees and partners stepped up to the plate again in 2018, successfully raising $257,700 in support of The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation.

Founded by Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, the foundation raises money for cancer research and provides support to children and families battling the disease.

Throughout the year, @gives back held various fundraisers including the Strike Out Cancer event. More than 300 guests attended the event, which featured a VIP reception with Rizzo, live entertainment, baseball-themed bites, and a silent auction with items including an exclusive dugout experience with Rizzo. Check out the video below to see the highlights.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this important cause and helped strike out cancer. Stay tuned for more @gives back announcements in 2019!
