NBOA Summer Soirée

Every year, it seems that the Summer Soirée just gets more and more popular. This year was no exception. The 2018 event boasted the biggest turn-out since it began. More than 350 real estate professionals and other guests attended the evening’s festivities. The weather was perfect and the setting – Piper Hall on the Loyola University campus – could not have been nicer. The historic old building and lushly landscaped grounds provided the perfect venue for a summer lawn party. The cool breeze from Lake Michigan, just a few steps from the building, was an extra added bonus at no extra cost!

The Summer Soiree has evolved from a joint summer party thrown by the RPBG and the Edgewater Uptown Building Owners (EUBA) in 1999. While neither the RPBG nor EUBA are exclusive sponsors, representatives from both organization remain involved in the planning and organization of the event. Special kudos to EUBA’s Michael Slater for orchestrating this event, and to the entire NBOA Board for pitching in as needed with planning and organizing.

We also want to thank the event’s sponsors, including Loyola University which, once again, generously allowed us to use historic Piper Hall along the Lakefront. We also had an impressive list of corporate sponsors. Our Diamond Sponsors were CIC (Community Investment Corporation) and RCN; our Platinum Sponsors were Renovo Financial, Kiser Group, Essex Realty Group, Urban Partnership Bank, Spaces, Greystone, and Chase Commercial Team Lending. Our Gold Sponsors were Lakeside Bank, Sarnoff & Baccash, Independent Recycling Services, Everywhere Wireless, and Monarch Realty Partners. The generous contributions of our sponsors will be put to good use. Not only do these funds make the event possible, they will also provide funding for the important advocacy work the NBOA does every day on behalf of property owners in Chicago’s neighborhoods.

To add a competitive edge to the evening, the Soiree launched its first ever “Bags Tournament." Kiser Group handily beat a team from Marcus & Millichap to win the title, and two $500 gift cards donated by the event sponsor, Crawford Plumbing Supplies.

This annual event has become a fixture on the real estate community’s summer calendar. We look forward to another successful event in 2019 – 30 years since the first RPBG – EUBA Summer function.
