Havana Nights Retrospective

Last Friday, October 15th, Compass was proud to participate in Havana Nights All In Vs. Cancer, a local fundraising event benefitting Real Men Wear Pink, a fundraising organization for the American Cancer Society.

Compass was responsible for providing Havana Nights with digital infrastructure that powered the 13-lot auction that evening, consisting of all-inclusive trips, private dinner experiences, sporting event tickets, and other luxury auction items. Compass is overjoyed to have helped REthink Luxury in working this auction, which helped raise a total of upwards of $60,000 in a single night to help benefit the American Cancer Society’s research for the advancement of cancer treatments.

Havana Nights was organized by REthink Luxury, a real estate partnership between Chattanooga natives Trey Corum and Jon Chadwick. REthink’s involvement in organizing Havana Nights was motivated by the diagnosis of HER2+ breast cancer in Aimee Chadwick, the founder and President of the Jamie’s Wish Foundation and wife to Jon.

Compass is humbled and honored to have been a part of Havana Nights, and looks forward to serving other organizations that utilize auctions to benefit additional worthy causes in the future.
