The Atlanta Commercial Board of REALTORS hosted its 12th annual October BrokerFest on October 18th at American Spirit Works, a social event that raises funds for local nonprofit organizations. Over 400 REALTORS and guests came together to enjoy an exciting evening of networking with the "Who's Who" of Commercial Real Estate and industry leaders.

The proceeds from the event will benefit the Dana G. Smith Assistance Fund and the Atlanta REALTORS Educational Foundation. The Dana G. Smith Assistance Fund was founded with seed money from the Atlanta Commercial Board in 2006 in honor of Dana Smith, a young, successful commercial real estate broker who lost her life to cancer at the age of 32. The Dana G. Smith Cancer Assistance Fund is administered through Piedmont Hospital and has helped hundreds of patients since its inception.  ACBR is very pleased to continue her dream of helping others struggling in their fight against cancer.

ACBR BrokerFest Committee Chairman Scott Hutchison stated, “Funds raised by the members of the Atlanta Commercial Board honor the life of Dana Smith through the DGS Fund and sustain her vision of helping others while they are battling cancer.  The Educational Foundation is a vital part of our organization and the proceeds will go towards education for our members within the real estate industry."
