As many of you know we host an annual Cash Bash Gala to Benefit the Chez Family Center for Wounded Veterans in Higher Education at the University of Illinois. In the past 5 years Keller Williams Realty of Champaign along with Keller Williams International have been able to raise $350,000 of the $500,000 that that was pledged in 2012. Yesterday during a Keller Williams Regional Leadership event Director Nicholas J. Osborne, shared with us some of the many benefits that the center offers students returning to college after their careers in the Armed Forces.
Yesterday’s post on the Chez Center’s Facebook page offered the following quote,
“Keller Williams Realty has been a tremendous partner of the Center from day one. The Center enjoyed meeting with national board of director members, Mo Anderson and Mary Tennant, during their visit to campus on Nov 8. Their generous gifts continue to provide wonderful scholarships for our students. Thank you Keller Williams for all of your generous support!”
We are honored to be part of this tremendous endeavor and center at the University of Illinois. Please take a moment this weekend to celebrate our Veterans and to consider making a donation to help this center thrive and then duplicate into other campuses around the country.
