NAI Hunneman doesn’t need an excuse to be competitive. So when the company heard that the Special Olympics of Massachusetts was hosting their 1st Annual Brokers and Beanbags Cornhole Tournament—several of our employees decided to participate.
The Special Olympics of Massachusetts is a nonprofit that provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The cornhole tournament is one of the numerous events the nonprofit puts on in an effort to raise money that allows these athletes to train and compete without charging them and their families.
NAI Hunneman’s Downtown & Property Management Groups competed against 19 corporate teams alongside 30 Special Olympians. According to Rachel Dill, Director of Development, roughly 120 people were in attendance, raising a total of $47,500. Dill says that the money raised will go towards supporting 122 athletes to participate in a full year of sports.
Of the 19 teams that competed, NAI Hunneman’s Downtown Leasing & Advisory Services team came in first place. Recently, Dill presented the team with their winning plaque—which they very much look forward to defending at next year’s tournament.
NAI Hunneman Executive Vice President Peter Evans says, “we were delighted to participate in the tournament; winning was just one of the special memories we will take with us. The real winner is the Special Olympics of Massachusetts, a truly dedicated organization that benefits numerous families. We look forward to participating next year in hopes of retaining our title.”
