Compass Auction, Other Groups Take Part In Havana Nights All In Vs. Cancer

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

Compass Auction was among those participating in Havana Nights All In Vs. Cancer, a local fundraising event benefiting Real Men Wear Pink, a fundraising organization for the American Cancer Society.

Compass was responsible for providing Havana Nights with digital infrastructure that powered the 13-lot auction that evening, consisting of all-inclusive trips, private dinner experiences, sporting event tickets, and other luxury auction items. Compass is overjoyed to have helped REthink Luxury in working this auction, which helped raise a total of upwards of $60,000 in a single night to help benefit the American Cancer Society’s research for the advancement of cancer treatments.

Havana Nights was organized by REthink Luxury, a real estate partnership between Chattanooga natives Trey Corum and Jon Chadwick. REthink’s involvement in organizing Havana Nights was motivated by the diagnosis of HER2+ breast cancer in Aimee Chadwick, the founder and president of the Jaime’s Wish Foundation and wife to Jon.

Officials said, "Compass is humbled and honored to have been a part of Havana Nights, and looks forward to serving other organizations that utilize auctions to benefit additional worthy causes in the future."

More information on the Chadwicks’ experience with cancer treatment can be found on Jon’s Real Men Wear Pink webpage. To learn more about the Jamie’s Wish Foundation, visit jamieswish.org. For more details on REthink Luxury, visit the REthink team’s Zillow page.

Founded in 2010 and constantly growing, Compass is known for its weekly auctions working with corporations, municipalities, federal entities, and individual consignors, and for its hybrid auction platform for live and online bidding focusing on five primary categories: municipal surplus, vehicles, luxury goods, firearms, and real estate.
