Join us for the 19th annual United Way Commercial Real Estate Network Legacy Luncheon. This premier event connects you to honorary guests and the state's leading commercial real estate professionals, providing unparalleled opportunities for networking while showcasing the industry’s commitment to the long-term health of our community.

The Legacy Luncheon helps United Way of Northern New Jersey invest in the backbone of New Jersey's workforce – ALICE®. This stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed and represents the one-quarter of our state's households who, despite working, are unable to afford basic necessities. United Way works to remove the barriers keeping ALICE children and families from reaching their potential, focused on tackling the underlying causes of financial instability - the lack of a quality education, insufficient income, and poor health.

Impact Award

Each year the Network selects one team within the commercial real estate industry for the United Way Impact Award, recognizing work on a development project, sale, lease, or other real estate transaction that is considered to have had the most positive impact in our region that year. We will honor this year's Impact Award winner at the Legacy Luncheon.

We are proud to announce the 2018 finalists:

  • Barclays acquisition of The Crossings at Jefferson Park  
  • Hahne & Co. Redevelopment Project
  • Ironside Redevelopment Project
  • Newark Museum 
  • Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center at Rockefeller Group's "The Green at Florham Park"

A Powerhouse Speaker

We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by Trish O’Keefe, PhD, RN, president of Morristown Medical Center. Trish has a remarkable story, having started at Morristown Medical Center as a nurse in 1981, and assuming roles of increasing responsibility until she was named president of the organization. Under her leadership, Morristown Medical Center received the prestigious designation as an American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Hospital for Nursing Excellence in 2001, 2005, 2009, and 2014. 

Meet Our Moderator

Joining us as moderator will be Dan Loughlin, MCR, the international director for JLL’s New Jersey office market brokerage group. Widely recognized as a top deal-maker, Dan has long been a staple in the New Jersey commercial real estate field, ever since he co-founded his own firm in 1997, Loughlin Stanton, LLC. He has been with JLL since July 2008. His clients include Merck, Pfizer, and Allergan amongst many other big-name firms in the area.

Reflecting Our Values

We are excited to present the inaugural United Way Spirit Award at the Luncheon this year. This new award honors an individual from the commercial real estate industry who is an asset to our community, and whose actions reflect the values of United Way of Northern New Jersey, fighting to improve health, education, or financial stability within our region. We are extremely pleased to be honoring Chris Johnson and his team at Hollister with the 2018 Spirit Award. Under Chris’s leadership, Hollister has taken admirable measures to embed philanthropy and civic engagement into their corporate culture. As a result, the Hollister team has long served as a beacon for others, acting as a catalyst for good while inspiring others through their service and dedication to improving conditions within their sphere of influence.
