The event took place at the Uptown Underground nightclub in Chicago on Monday, September 14th. @gives back, formerly @properties Friends and Neighbors Community fund, was established in 2009 by @properties co-founders Thaddeus Wong and Michael Golden to inspire charitable outreach and support local organizations with an emphasis on education, homelessness, and youth development. Along with Noah, the event also featured the cast of Second City Chicago and the firm was one of many sponsors. The event raised over $40,000 for the Noah’s Arc Foundation, a local organization founded by Noah and his mother Cecilia Rodhe that provides diverse opportunities for at-risk youth to become more aware of their ability to make a positive impact on themselves and their community.
