Cassidy Turley has raised $80,000 for Children’s Health System of Texas (formerly Children’s Medical Center Dallas) at a recent fundraiser as the commercial real estate firm pledges to raise $500,000 in five years for the hospital.

The Children’s Health event, held Oct. 24, met nearly 20 percent of that goal.

More than 250 guests attended the Dallas Country Club gathering, which featured Larry Brown, Southern Methodist University and Hall of Fame basketball coach as the keynote speaker. Proceeds from luncheon tickets, as well as additional donations collected at the event, were presented to Children’s Health, with top donors gifted with autographed basketballs.

“The funds raised at this luncheon speak to the generosity and compassion of the great people of North Texas,” said Bret Bunnet, regional managing principal of Cassidy Turley in a news release.

“Cassidy Turley is proud to support the brilliant work of the doctors, nurses and staff at Children’s Health, and we look so very forward to continuing to sponsor events that spotlight the health and well-being of children,” Bunnet said.

In addition to Brown, speakers at the event included Dr. Kern Wildenthal, president of Children’s Health Center Foundation, and Jocelyn Garcia, a former Children’s patient.
