Bruce Fogelson’s intertwining of real estate and charity led to the creation of the first ever urban charity designer’s showcase of homes as a fundraiser.  Bruce created and hosted the first ever “Chicago Showcase Of Homes” which featured sponsors and sold tickets with all proceeds for charity.  Three of his luxury homes were professionally decorated by 7 signature ASID interior designers and then open for tours for weeks to raise thousands of dollars for local public schools.

Further, Bruce created the first Top Chef competition for real estate brokers after hosting the Chicago season of the T.V. show Top Chef in one of his luxury homes.  Bruce created the Top Chef Broker charity event for local real estate brokers to compete with their own homemade selections.  Once again, all proceeds for the local Chicago Public School.
