On March 14, 2018, the Orange County chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women, CREW-OC, hosted its 7th annual SPIRE Awards ceremony at the Samueli Theater in Costa Mesa, honoring local commercial real estate leaders for Superior Performance In Real Estate. Over 300 people turned out to celebrate the industry’s achievements and honor the very best and brightest in Orange County. Steve T. Card, Senior Managing Partner at Savills Studley and Project Youth OCBF Board of Directors Member, was honored as Winner for “Superior Performance in Philanthropy.” He was nominated by Project Youth for his outstanding philanthropic contributions including his role in securing Project Youth’s new building pro bono, and the donation of his full commission in excess of $60,000 to fund the programs of Project Youth, detailed here.

CREW-OC is a member organization of the national Commercial Real Estate Women Network and has been serving Orange County real estate professionals since 1988. The philanthropic arm of CREW Network, the CREW Network Foundation, is committed to bringing more women into commercial real estate with programs that educate women and girls about the career opportunities available to them and creating mentoring relationships for those new to the industry.
