Local Real Estate Firm Holds Event For Charity

By Staff Reports

(Victorvielle)–—Lee & Associates, one of the largest commercial real estate

brokerage firms in the country, is looking forward to the annual mixer they’ve

dubbed “HoLEEwood.” While the first 50 guests will receive a “HoLEEwood” gift

bag, the real winners are the communities where Lee & Associates operates as this

year the firm is truly mixing things up by donating all proceeds of the opportunity

drawing to a local food drive.

The annual networking event has always been meant to connect with the

communities Lee & Associates serves and this year it holds special meaning, as it

will kick off the “SOUPer Bowl of Caring,” a food drive spearheaded by the six Rotary

Clubs in the High Desert region. The event comes at just the right time as food

pantries often run low this time of year as holiday donations begin to run out.

Lee & Associates President Donald P. Brown, a longtime Rotarian, said “Rotary is all

about service above self, and this is just one more way to give back to the local

community. The food drive will serve the hungry people in this community that

have been hit hard by the economic downturn.” High Desert poverty rates are

between 13% for Apple Valley and over 22% for Adelanto.

In a sign that things might be turning around, Lee & Associates, one of the longest

running commercial brokerage and leasing firms in the High Desert, is gaining

momentum. The company recently hired a new agent to keep up with its growth and

another of its agents just won two prestigious CoStar Power Broker Awards.

“This community has always been good to us, so we are always finding ways to

return the favor,” added Brown. “This annual event is just one of the ways we do

that.”

To support the “SOUPer Bowl of Caring” join Lee & Associates Inland Empire North

for a night out with the stars from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on May 10 at the Lee & Associates

Headquarters located at 14369 Park Avenue in Victorville.

The mixer is not a project of Rotary International (RI) and RI does not contribute

financially to the mixer.
