Caring for our community is a core value at The Bruske Team.  We live, work, play, and raise our families in Arizona,  and the communities around us matter to us.  Our work at the Bruske Team is about more than just buying and selling houses; the people and businesses that make our neighborhoods great have our support.  We take pride in pouring our time and treasure into a few special causes each year.

Pinwheels for Hope

Pinwheels for Hope is a month-long fundraiser to support families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis.  During September, Children’s Cancer Network operates Pinwheels for Hope with the help of people like our own Gretchen Baumgardner, who raise money for costs associated with a cancer battle.  In addition to medical costs, these families are facing travel, lodging, and lost wages. As a board member for CCN, Gretchen chairs the Pinwheels for Hope event here in the Valley which raises money for the travel expenses for these very deserving families.

The Special Olympics

The Special Olympics is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and here at the Bruske Team, we are proud to support the initiatives that build more inclusive communities.  As part of Engel & Volkers Scottsdale, we can amplify the great work of the Special Olympics, which lead to a more respectful world.  These talented athletes teach us how to think differently and how to set goals as individuals, as local brokerages, and as teammates across the country to accomplish more and realize the common good.  You can join the Bruske Team and support EV’s Team Scottsdale in the “60 minutes for Special Olympics Bike Ride” taking place on October 15th.  Every minute given, every dollar donated, and every kind word makes a difference in creating opportunities for those who need it most.

Why Community is Important

Jim Bruske and Gretchen Baumgardner are leaders in real estate but also in fostering community.  They have dedicated themselves to bettering others around them by helping their local schools and sports programs.  Jim Bruske is a lifetime member and past executive councilman for the Phoenix Boys and Girls Club of America. Gretchen is passionately involved with Phoenix Children’s Hospital Family Advisory Council as well as the Children’s Cancer Network.  We’d love for you to join us in supporting these causes and look forward to hearing about the causes you are passionate about.   Living where we do is a privilege and it is with grateful hearts that we reach out with generosity to support our neighborhoods.
