The Hilton’s Anatole Sculpture Park was once again the backdrop for The Real Estate Council’s 20th annual Giving Gala, held Oct. 4.
About 900 people attended the western-themed event celebrating TREC’s members, funding partners, and community involvement. The event, chaired by Paradise Development’s Mitch Paradise, raised more than $450,000 for The Real Estate Council’s foundation.
The evening’s activities included a concert by country star music’s Cagle and a live auction of four playhouses, designed and built by TREC members with a board games theme. The Candy Land themed playhouse sold to the highest bidder for $12,000; Cagle’s autographed signed guitar went to TREC Chairman Mark Gibson for $5,500.
Spotted in the crowd were Michael Dardick of Granite Properties, incoming TREC chairman Holt Lunsford, TREC president Linda McMahon, and Archon director Will Mundinger II.
Here are some photos from the big bash, taken by photographer Jeremy Brown.
