Today, the Flaherty & Collins Properties team held it’s annual fundraiser in support of the Mozel Sanders Foundation Thanksgiving Day campaign. Through the efforts of its nearly 450 employees, F&C raised $3,794.71.
This year, Flaherty & Collins Properties held a Pie Eating Contest and Bake-Off event on
to serve as the basis of a donation to the Mozel Sanders Foundation in support of the foundation’s annual Thanksgiving Day campaign.
Participants were from all over our department areas: Grante Manning (Accounting), Andrew Moster (IT, KSMC Consulting), Ida McCombs (HR), Brandon Prince (Intern), Brian Moore (Marketing & Communications), Amber Woods Maintenance Team, Kim Whitaker (Compliance), Chris Kirles (Construction).
Marketing & Communications Director, Brian Moore, celebrated his win with a tasty medal (he’d had enough pie!).
Next, we held a bake-off auction, led by our esteemed resident auctioneer, Gavin Greene. Lisa Thomas’ (Accounting) cheesecake pulled in over $100 alone!

Flaherty & Collins Properties, which has donated to various areas of the Mozel Sanders Foundation for many years, had been collecting non-perishable goods, personal hygiene products and household cleaning supplies over the past six weeks to help support Mozel Sanders’ efforts in this area during the holiday season and beyond.
Westlake (Indianapolis) donated the most goods – a full truckload!
Judges LaKeisha Jackson, Lynne Petersen and Stephanie Sanders were impressed with the baked goods and awarded trophies to our winners:
1st Place – Terry Corley (Accounting)
2nd Place – Bruce Mullen (Construction)
3rd Place – Ryan Cronk (well, his wife, Kelly)
The Foundation distributes more than 30,000 pounds of these items each month of the year.In 2014, over 2,000 volunteers served over 40,000 meals from 45 locations. In 2013, the average cost per meal was $4.50.
Flaherty & Collins President Jerry Collins and CEO David Flaherty presented a check to Stephanie Sanders of the Mozel Sanders Foundation.
Many thanks to all who helped make it happen, and to the Indiana Apartment Association (IAA) for letting us hold the event indoors! And now, Jill Herron and her planning team are in a sugar-induced coma!
