On June 6, 2017, CREW Richmond hosted its Summer Social at the Virginia Historical Society to raise money for Dress for Success in Central Virginia. There was a great turn out by the Commercial Real Estate Women of RVA. The Casino Night theme offered an opportunity to exchange business cards and mingle with one another in an exciting, fast-paced setting.
The Casino-inspired game tables were set up around the room and CREW Richmond supplied each registered guest with $40,000 play money to "gamble" with. The competitive atmosphere naturally escalated once the auctioning started. Options included restaurant packages, trips, a box suite at a Flying Squirrels Game, and a rare offering of a framed and signed watercolor by Dr. W. Baxter Perkinson, Jr. The evening was catered by Mosaic, which was delicious, and coupled with desserts and two drink tickets it was an event that promoted personal connections between members and guests. The room was filled with laughter and applause as the night came to a close and each game table was at their peak of excitement.
On the way out the door CREW offered each guest a gift box packed with goodies from our various sponsors - We can't thank our sponsors enough for helping promote networking events like this! It was a great success of a night and a wonderful opportunity to involve new guests and introduce them to CREW events in a fun way.
