SAVE THE DATE! 3rd annual Golden Eagle Real Estate Gala

Friday, November 5, 2021
Bottle House 42 / MKE Brewing (formerly Venue 42, Pabst Brewery District)

The 2rd annual Golden Eagle Gala was held on Friday, November 8, 2019. The event was a big success, drawing a sold-out crowd of nearly 275 people at Good City Brewing in downtown Milwaukee (next to the Milwaukee Buck's stadium, the Fiserv Forum).

The event raised more than $50,000 to support real estate education and outreach at Marquette University, and included:

  • Open bar with two specialty beers (a Pilsner and IPA) brewed just for this event thanks to a donation of hops and malt care of board member Perry Vieth of Ceres Partners (special thanks to Jim Passios of Hop Head Farms as well - Jim's son, Zach, is in the RE program at MU)
  • Heavy hors d'ouevres
  • Silent auction with more than 30 items, including hotel stays, Caribbean resort trip packages, spa treatments, Marquette Patagonia gear, and more
  • Live auction including a Marquette basketball game package, a trip to the Bahamas, and a Green Bay Packers game experience
  • Video featuring the Center for Real Estate and alumni success stories
  • A live band with dance floor
  • A step-and-repeat including photos with the Marquette Golden Eagle mascot

Several awards will be given out, including:

  • Deal of the Year
  • Service to Marquette Real Estate Award
  • Student Academic Award
  • Student Leadership Award

Finally, a huge thanks to the REALM gala planning committee members who work tirelessly to ensure this event is a success!
