Photos: The Real Estate Council Young Guns 2016 Casino Night

The Real Estate Council Young Guns hosted the 10th annual Casino Night at One Victory Park on February 18. More than 500 guests enjoyed the Miami-themed event with casino-style games, cocktails, networking, and the chance to win raffle prizes while listening to DJ Jason Esquire’s playlist. Young Guns chair Elias Bahar of Pritchard & Associates kicked off the evening with Casino Night chair Bonner McDermett of Highland Capital Management by explaining the importance of the event: raising funds to better the community through the Young Guns Foundation Project at Bachman Lake Together Family Center. This year’s Young Guns will provide fundraising, project management, and landscape architecture services to support the construction and beautification of Bachman Lake Together Family Center. The center will serve as a community hub for families where they can easily access quality early childhood education, benefit from social services, and positively transform their neighborhood.
