The Real Estate Council Raises $945,000 at FightNight 23

The Real Estate Council raised $945,000 at its 23rd annual FightNight on May 12 at the Hilton Anatole. More than 1,000 members and guests enjoyed the largest fundraising event in Dallas for the commercial real estate industry featuring a cocktail reception, dinner, boxing, casino gaming and entertainment.

The proceeds raised will help fund The Real Estate Council’s Community Initiatives that focus on improving housing, education, job creation and the environment. The Real Estate Council’s highly successful public/private partnership model combines the pro bono professional services of its 1,300 members and 500 member companies with philanthropic dollars and government advocacy efforts to achieve systemic change. The Real Estate Council FightNight 23 was held on May 12 at the Hilton Anatole. It was the first time a family of commercial real estate executives, the Mundingers, chaired the event.

Chairing this year’s FightNight was a family of commercial real estate leaders who work and volunteer together - The Mundinger Family. It was the first time in the long history of FightNight to have a father, son and daughter chairing this notable event.

The main boxing event of the evening was the WBC US National Boxing Championship Super Welterweight Title. Champion Juan Carlos Candelo (Baytown, TX) defeated Justin Flanagan (Charleston, AK).

Internationally known Jimmy Lennon Jr. again served as the ring announcer.

Since its inception in 1988, FightNight has grown to one of North Texas’ largest philanthropic events, raising more than $19 million to support The Real Estate Council’s good works.
