Proper Title Joins Chicago’s Leaders at @Gives Back Laugh-Off Fundraiser

September 29, 2015

Northbrook, Ill.-based Proper Title, LLC, a full-service title insurance agency serving the residential and commercial real estate industries, announced it joined more than 150 of Chicago’s business and real estate industry leaders at the Uptown Underground on September 14 for the @Gives Back Laugh-Off fundraiser. The event, hosted by @Properties and sponsored by Proper Title, raised funds for the Noah’s Arc Foundation, led by Chicago Bull’s center Joakim Noah, as well as Proper Giving, a charitable program created by Proper Title to raise proceeds for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

“It’s a privilege to support such an outstanding organization as Noah’s Arc,” said Ben Niernberg, executive vice president of business development and operations at Proper Title, who also serves on the board of @Gives Back. “Creating opportunities to help others is exactly why we formed Proper Giving earlier this year, and we’re fortunate to be able to share our success and partner with Joakim and @Properties toward that effort.”

The @Gives Back Laugh-Off event featured a performance by the Second City comedy group, as well as an after party held at Kiss, Kiss Cabaret. Attendees also had an opportunity to purchase tickets that included autograph and photo opportunities with Joakim Noah, as well as a chance to win a seat at the Joakim Noah dinner.

In addition to funds raised at the event, Proper Giving also contributes donations based on Proper Title’s business transactions. For every title insurance purchase Proper Title executes, the firm will contribute $10 to the Proper Giving program, as well as $3 for every refinancing transaction, for both residential and commercial transactions. Proceeds are donated to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Over the past year, Proper Title has grown its transaction volume by 50 percent, and its revenue by 110 percent.

“Because we’re making a contribution for every closing transaction, as we continue to grow, so does our positive impact,” said Niernberg. “Proper Title is committed to improving the lives of those in need, and Proper Giving will help us further that effort for years to come.”
