CU Real Estate Young Alumni Volunteering!

The CU Real Estate Young Alumni kicked off the holiday season by volunteering at the Women’s Bean Project (WBP) Holiday Fair. The Fair is open to the public where they sell handmade jewelry and a variety of handmade gift baskets, bags and packages filled with lentils, beans, soups and more. The CU Alumni worked hard making bows, tying bows, stocking inventory, assembling bean soup mixes, and assisting with anything else the WBP needed. Overall the WBP Holiday Fair seemed to be a success. After all of our hard work we stopped in at Jakes Food & Spirits for lunch and drinks. Jake’s definitely hit the spot… may have been the fried Twinkie!

Volunteering at the WBP Holiday Fair was a perfect 4Q service event and something the CU RE Young Alumni will do every year.

A little about the Women’s Bean Project:

Jossy Eyre founded the Women's Bean Project in 1989 as a result of her volunteer work at a day shelter for homeless women. Eyre saw that while the shelter kept women safe, if could not help them make lasting changes in their lives. Eyre bought $500 worth of beans and put two homeless women to work - the first step in building the social enterprise we are today. Our training opportunities have expanded dramatically over the years, and annual operating budget has grown from $6,100 to over $1.5 million. In 1993, King Soopers became the first grocery store to carry our products. In 1995, we purchased former Fire Station #10 from the City and County of Denver, and moved to our new home the following year, giving us permanent roots at 3201 Curtis Street. Today the WBP product offerings have expanded to salsa mixes, spice rubs, coffee beans, and jelly beans in addition to our soups and chili, along with gift baskets, baking mixes and much more.

CU Real Estate Club - Professional Association Panel

The Real Estate Club had their last meeting of the fall semester, November 5, 2012, which focused on some of the top real estate professional associations. Both undergraduate and graduate real estate students enjoyed a panel presentation representing ULI, NAIOP, IREM, ICSC and DMCAR. Each representative talked about their organization’s mission, student memberships and upcoming events. Carl Koelbel represented ULI Young Leaders, Morgan Landers represented NAIOP Developing Leaders, Vicki Jenings represented IREM, Paul Sheppard represented ICSC Next Generation and Katie Kruger represented DMCAR. A huge thanks to all of the panelists who left the students with the excitement of joining one or more of these groups and getting involved with some stellar networking!

Homecoming 2012!

On Saturday, November 2, 2012, the CU real estate alumni celebrated CU’s Homecoming at the Leeds Tailgate Tent which was set up west of the B-School. The morning event was chilly but hot breakfast burritos, pastries, coffee and hot chocolate were plentiful! The Real Estate alums (Laura Spitzmiller and Neil Almy) who were working the real estate table gave away loads of prizes to the lucky attendees who won High/Low (card game). Prizes were donated by the Real Estate Center and Alumni Committee Chair, Erin Marilley. Good times and good food were enjoyed by all!
