The Real Estate Council’s FightNight raised more than $1 MM for The Real Estate Council Foundation, which helps Dallas nonprofits improve the city in four areas: job creation, affordable housing, education and the environment.

More than 1,100 people attended the event, chaired by Michael Krywucki of the Munsch Hardt, on May 3 at the Hilton Anatole. The Real Estate Council’s Associate Leadership Council Class sold $100,000 worth of raffle tickets.

Since its inception in 1988, The Real Estate Council’s FightNight has become one of North Texas’ largest philanthropic events, raising more than $21 million to support The Real Estate Council Foundation. The council doesn’t just raise money; each year, its members contribute their time — expertise worth $500,000 — to the nonprofits.
