    Crew Chicago is excited to be using Gesture, an online bidding tool, for the silent auction this year. If you have already registered for the event and provided your cell phone number you should have received a text message with a link to the online silent auction.  The auction is currently live and you can browse items and even start bidding!  You will need to enter credit card information to place a bid, but you may pay for your items with cash, check, or the card on file the night of the event, should you have the winning bid.

    For those of you who cannot attend the event, the benefit to the online auction means that you can still bid on items this year!  The auction will be live until 8 pm November 16, 2016.  IF you have the winning bid, your card will be charged and delivery arrangements will be made.

    Last Call for Fall – 10th Anniversary


    Last Call for Fall (LCFF) is a not-to-be-missed event for the Chicago Real Estate Industry. This is CREW Chicago's big charitable event which raises funds to support CREW Foundation in creating opportunities for women and girls to achieve economic and professional success through programs such as CREW Careers and CREW Scholarships. Every year since 2003, this event has been held in one of the most exciting venues in the city and offered surprises, fun and valuable networking opportunities.

    As CREW Chicago’s signature fundraising event, LCFF attracts nearly 200 people, both members and non members, throughout the commercial real estate community. In addition to providing guests with the opportunity to network while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, the event featured a silent auction, a Thanksgiving-themed centerpiece design competition between some of the city’s leading architectural and design firms, and other exciting surprises. But all the fun supports a greater goal: raising funds for the educational efforts of CREW Chicago and CREW Foundation to help support our mission of advancing the power and success of women in the industry. Working with 22 colleges, our Scholarship Committee selects the best and brightest young women pursuing graduate and undergraduate degrees in real estate and awards up to three $3,000 scholarships. CREW Network has awarded more than 35 $10,000 scholarships over the past 4 years. The CREW Chicago scholarship recipients were recognized at the Last Call for Fall event.

    This year was no different! Last Call For Fall took place on Thursday, November 14, 2013. We celebrated the 10th anniversary of CREW Chicago's Annual Fundraiser for CREW Foundation and Commercial Real Estate Education and Scholarships with Drinks, Hor d 'oeuvres, Silent auction, and a Call for Fall Design Challenge. Discounted parking was provided at The AON Center Building by Jones Lang LaSalle Management and Standard Parking.

    This year, Last Call for Fall took place in the amazing Baker & McKenzie Conference Center at the top of the BlueCross BlueShield Building at 300 E. Randolph, showcasing incredible views of the Chicago skyline and Millennium Park. Designed by the renowned architectural firm Goettsch Partners, the firm’s award-winning conference center includes 17 meeting rooms that can host groups from four to 300, a Zen-like reflecting pool, advanced A/V capabilities, and breathtaking views of the city. In October 2012, Crain’s Chicago Business magazine named Baker & McKenzie’s offices as one of the “coolest offices” in the city. Read more about our 2013 Last Call for Fall Event...
