Brokerage contributes, raises more than $16,000 at inaugural effort

Urban Partners and Guests from the Union League Boys and Girls Clubs at the Urban Holiday Benefit

Our ability to make even the smallest difference this holiday season to kids who could use it most is one of the greatest gifts we can give.

The Urban Real Estate (Urban) traditional annual holiday party for Urban brokers, friends, and clients was this year converted to a holiday benefit, raising money for the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs (ULBGC). With nearly 140 guests in attendance, Urban Real Estate presented a check for $16,384.29.

Urban held its holiday benefit on Friday, December 2, at the Union League Club of Chicago, making a contribution on behalf of its attendees; guests at the event were invited to make an additional gift as well.

Throughout the year, the ULBGC has various needs it raises money for. At the Urban Holiday Benefit, guests were asked to “Buy a Bow” – each bow was $20, and represented a gift that ULBGC would be able to buy for a child who might not otherwise receive a gift this holiday season.

“The work of the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs is invaluable to the communities it serves. This organization supports young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring individuals,” says Matt Farrell, managing partner of Urban Real Estate and a trustee of the ULBGC.

According to its Web site, ULBGC currently serves more than 13,200 enrolled members between the ages of 6 and 18 at eight locations. “Our ability to make even the smallest difference this holiday season to kids who could use it most is one of the greatest gifts we can give. Thank you to our clients, friends, and brokers, for their support this season and all year-round,” adds Farrell.

Urban Real Estate contributes to local causes throughout the year, and supports its brokers in endeavors near and dear to their own hearts. For more on the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs, visit
