Pacific Union International Real Estate Teams With Rebuilding Together Peninsula to Sponsor “Play is More” Playhouse for June 3 Dreams Happen Auction

Menlo Park, CA, May 31, 2017 — Pacific Union International, Inc., the eighth-largest residential real estate brokerage in the U.S., is bringing its Menlo Park and Palo Alto real estate professionals together in support of the biennial Dreams Happen Gala & Playhouse Auction on June 3 at Stanford Shopping Center to raise funds for Rebuilding Together Peninsula.

“Pacific Union’s Community Fund has teamed with architects and builders to present a stunning playhouse titled ‘Play is More,’” Pacific Union Silicon Valley Vice President David Barca says. “’Play is More’ was designed by NOMOS RED and built using the BONE Structure steel construction system, a technology inspired by the aerospace industry for high-performance homes. The results are spectacular!”

Virginia Supnet, a Pacific Union real estate professional in the Menlo Park flagship office organized the donation of a battery-powered Radio Flyer Tesla Model S from Tesla Motors to accompany the sleek, contemporary look of the playhouse and give it an added touch of luxury.

Dreams Happen is a biennial event hosted by Stanford Shopping Center that pairs architects with builders to create unique, elaborately designed, life-sized children’s playhouses. These playhouses will be auctioned at the Dreams Happen Gala and Playhouse Auction on June 3 at Stanford Shopping Center, where guests will enjoy a moonlight supper and dance the night away under the stars. All proceeds benefit Rebuilding Together Peninsula to improve the homes and lives of low-income neighbors in need by creating safe and healthy living environments.

Pacific Union has a vibrant history of support for the neighborhoods in which it works through its Community Fund. In 2016, total donations from the Community Fund since its inception topped $1 million and were distributed throughout the Bay Area to nonprofits including UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, the Menlo Charity Horse Show, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
