‘Tis the Season at Pillar Properties

It’s the season of giving and as a long time Northwest company, Pillar Properties is committed to giving back to the community. As part of our Pillar Passions program, we select a local organization to support each quarter.

We just wrapped up our efforts for Toys for Tots and the results were spectacular.

Each of our properties and the team at the Seattle office put together a huge effort to help ensure that children in need were supported this holiday season. We also received donations from outside companies since our properties were official drop off locations for Toys for Tots.

Our total donation for Toys for Tots this year comes to $40,000 in toys and cash.  We think that is an incredible effort and a ridiculously large donation given the size of our company.  Thank you to all of the residents and team members who helped make this effort successful!

To continue with the spirit of giving, we made sure to give our residents a time to come together and celebrate the holidays with friends and neighbors! Our properties hosted festive events to spread the holiday cheer including holiday cocktail parties, cozy holiday movie parties, and gift-wrap parties. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

The 12 Foundation

Pillar Passions is a program at Pillar Properties that focuses on supporting non-profit organizations. As a locally owned private family company, we want to do all we can to make a difference in our community.

In support of The 12 Foundation, The Nolo rooftop recently served as a sky-high runway to showcase Seahawk fan fashion.

The goal of The 12 Foundation is to unite the power of the Seahawks fan base to bring once in a lifetime experiences to deserving families and children in a time of need: “The 12’s to help and support fellow 12’s in need.”

The rooftop deck at The Nolo was transformed with lights and live music to showcase the glitz and glamour of Lady 12 apparel. This was the first fashion show for the line that is developed by Brendalyn and Joe Tafoya.  You may remember Joe from his days playing for the Hawks and his appearance in the first Super Bowl.  The runway also featured men’s fashion from current Seahawk Luke Willson’s Stormtech clothing line. Luke Willson is an ambassador to The 12 Foundation.

VIP seating lined the runway as local celebrities showed off this season’s hottest clothing designs! The breathtaking view from the rooftop was the perfect backdrop for the photographers waiting at the end of the runway capturing every step!

Folds of Honor

Every quarter Pillar Properties selects a non-profit organization to support as part of our Pillar Passions Program.  As a locally owned private family company, we want to do all we can to make a difference in our community.

This quarter Pillar Properties is supporting Folds of Honor in their efforts to provide educational scholarships to the family members of American service men and women who are injured or killed in the line of duty.

For the month of September we partnered with the area golf courses to support this worthy organization. Pillar Properties purchased special Titleist Pro-V1 Patriot Golf Day balls to support Folds of Honor to give to our residents when they played at the participating golf courses.

We also had events at each of our properties to support Folds of Honor. Our incredibly talented maintenance team constructed a full-size miniature golf hole for our residents and team members to putt on. All it took was a donation to Folds of Honor to test your putt putt skills! Every hole-in-one made earned you a raffle ticket to win some pretty awesome prizes including gift cards, golf gear and swag from the 2015 U.S. Open!

But of course, what’s an event without food! Our properties got a little more creative than just traditional BBQ. We served everything from Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches to a full taco bar spread to fried chicken with all the fixings! Our residents and team members had a blast putting for a great cause!
