It’s the season of giving and as a long time Northwest company, Pillar Properties is committed to giving back to the community. As part of our Pillar Passions program, we select a local organization to support each quarter.
We just wrapped up our efforts for Toys for Tots and the results were spectacular.
Each of our properties and the team at the Seattle office put together a huge effort to help ensure that children in need were supported this holiday season. We also received donations from outside companies since our properties were official drop off locations for Toys for Tots.
Our total donation for Toys for Tots this year comes to $40,000 in toys and cash. We think that is an incredible effort and a ridiculously large donation given the size of our company. Thank you to all of the residents and team members who helped make this effort successful!
To continue with the spirit of giving, we made sure to give our residents a time to come together and celebrate the holidays with friends and neighbors. The Century hosted a Holiday Cocktail Party to spread the holiday cheer. Residents enjoyed appetizers and craft cocktails in a festive poinsettia filled room. The featured drinks of the night were Cranberry Manhattans and Spiced Apple Cider Moscow Mules. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
Every quarter Pillar Properties selects a non-profit organization to support as part of our Pillar Passions Program. As a locally owned private family company, we want to do all we can to make a difference in our community.
This quarter Pillar Properties is supporting Folds of Honor in their efforts to provide educational scholarships to the family members of American service men and women who are injured or killed in the line of duty.
For the month of September we partnered with the area golf courses to support this worthy organization. Pillar Properties purchased special Titleist Pro-V1 Patriot Golf Day golf balls to support Folds of Honor to give to our residents when they played at the participating golf courses.
We also had events at each of our properties to support Folds of Honor. Our incredibly talented maintenance team constructed a full-size miniature golf hole for our residents and team members to putt on. All it took was a donation to Folds of Honor to test your putt putt skills! Every hole-in-one made earned you a raffle ticket to win some pretty awesome prizes including gift cards, golf gear and swag from the 2015 U.S. Open!
The Folds of Honor event at The Century was a blast! Residents racked up raffle tickets with their impressive putting skills! We loved to see how thrilled they were with their prizes.
But of course, what’s an event without food! We served giant sub sandwiches with lots of tasty sides!
It was a great day putting for a great cause!
